Brian Hartline and Cameron Wake led Miami on offense and defense respectively as the Dolphins overcame some early sloppiness to win their opener.

The Miami Dolphins overcame some first-half sloppiness to defeat the Cleveland Browns 23-10 in their season opener Sunday at HighEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

The Dolphins scored two second-half touchdowns – a 34-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill to Brian Hartline and a 1-yard run by Daniel Thomas.

The first half was sloppy for both teams. On the Dolphins’ first possession newcomer Brandon Gibson dropped a pass down the middle that could have been a big gain. Gibson atoned with a solid game finishing with seven catches for 77 yards.

For Cleveland Brandon Weeden threw three first-half interceptions – two by Dimitri Patterson and one by Nolan Carroll. Rookie kicker Caleb Sturgis was Miami’s best scoring option in the first half kicking field goals of 45 and 49 yards.
