Take your pick: Dolphins or Browns?
By James Walker
MIAMI -- We have an interesting Week 1 matchup between two teams trying to get over the hump. The Miami Dolphins will travel to face the Cleveland Browns. Both teams started rookie quarterbacks in 2012 and had losing records.
So which team will prevail on Sunday: Miami or Cleveland?
The Dolphins added a lot of talent this offseason and has playoff aspirations. General manager Jeff Ireland spent more than $200 million in free agency, and Dolphins fans are expecting results. Miami has a tough first five games, which makes this winnable game very important. Will the Dolphins win on the road?
Or will Cleveland defend its home turf? The Browns will be very excited for their home opener. They have a new head coach (Rob Chudzinski) and a new front office looking to make a statement. Will the Browns start 1-0 at Miami’s expense?
