Browns quarterback Colt McCoy has an opportunity to build on last week's solid outing against a weakened Dolphins secondary.
In playing Tom Brady and Matt Schaub, the Dolphins have given up the third-most passing yards in the NFL and the second-most passing touchdowns this season. Miami's secondary won't be at full strength in Cleveland because starting cornerback Vontae Davis (hamstring) is out and backup cornerback Will Allen (hamstring) is questionable.
"They don’t look like an 0-2 football team, that’s for sure, especially on the defensive side of the ball," said McCoy, who completed 22 of 32 passes for 211 yards and one touchdown last week. "You look at some of the guys that they have on their defense and they’ve basically returned everybody from last year. I expect them to come in here ready to play, flying around."
Strangely enough, McCoy has had more success on the road than at Cleveland Browns Stadium in his brief NFL career. In five starts at home, McCoy has thrown four touchdowns while getting picked off seven times. He's also averaged 190 yards passing at home, which is 20 yards less per game than on the road.
