    After coming off of a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami looks to over come a very tough Buffalo defense. Miami has a lot of questions marks going into this game and needs to right the train sooner rather than later.

    The Miami Dolphins opened their 50th season with a road trip to Fed Ex Field Sunday vs the Washington Redskins with some struggles, some highlights, but most importantly with a win. It wasn't an ideal first half as the defense couldn't seem to get off the field and the offense couldn't stay on it. Defensively, Grimes had an early interception, Suh made his presence felt at different points, and Rashad Jones had a very good game from the defensive backfield breaking up passes and making key tackles. However, Washington dominated the time of possession early on. Despite a lackluster beginning, the offense stepped up right before the half by putting together a solid 9 play, 80 yard drive that only took 1:22 minutes. And with just 27 seconds left in the second quarter, Ryan Tannehill threw a 3 yard strike to Rishard Matthews on a very nice pivot route to come uncovered in the endzone, which cut Washington's lead to only 3 points making the halftime score 10-7 Redskins.

    The defense stiffened in the second half shutting out Washington from the scoreboard, and the offense was able to put some more substantial drives together. But the most important play of the game came from special teams, and most appropriately from the player nicknamed "Juice". With 10:22 left in the fourth quarter and the score tied 10-10, Jarvis Landry fielded a punt and made his way through the middle with blocks set up by Zach Bowman and Walt Aikens. Landry then put a juke on punter Tress Way and sprinted his way to a 69 yard return for the go-ahead touchdown. Finally newcomer Brice McCain closed out the game with an incredible interception at the Dolphin's 2 yard line, and Lamar Miller ran strong to clench the win.

    Call it ugly, call it sloppy, but owner Stephen Ross called it best with his post game locker room comment, "A win is a win", as all three phases of the team contributed to the first win of the season and embodied the trademark instilled by Coach Philbin: Stronger Together.
