      FINS NOW 2-0!!

      Ryan Tannehill has his best day as a Dolphin throwing for 319 yrds and a TD

      The Miami Dolphins are now 2-0 to open the season after going on the road to Indianapolis and knocking off the favored Colts.

      Quarterback Ryan Tannehill again had an impressive day as he went 22 of 34 for 319 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. New wide receiver Mike Wallace was upset last week after only having one reception in the win over the Browns but had a much bigger day today catching 9 receptions for 115 yards and one touchdown.

      The running game, which was non-existent last week returned this week as Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for 69 yards and Daniel Thomas rushed 8 times for 30 yards. Miller had a rushing touchdown in the first half and tight end/fullback Charles Clay had the game winning rushing touchdown in the second half.

      Colts quarterback Andrew Luck also had a good day, but the Dolphins defense stepped it up in the 4th quarter as he tried to rally the team from behind. Cornerback Brent Grimes intercepted a Luck pass in the endzone and linebacker Philip Wheeler sacked him on a 4th down to give the Dolphins the ball back. The Dolphins would then take two knees to run out the clock.

      This was an impressive win for the young Dolphins and an even more impressive start to the 2013 season. Starting the season with two road games is a tough challenge and the Dolphins overcame it and remain undefeated. The Dolphins home opener is next Sunday as they welcome with 1-1 Atlanta Falcons.

      The Miami Dolphins opened the 2013 NFL season with a solid 23-10 victory on the road against the Cleveland Browns. While the running had one of the worst days in franchise history the passing game had a good day along with a dominate day by the defense.

      The running game never got going as Daniel Thomas was the leading rusher with just 14 yards and the team had extremely poor 20 total rushing yards. While that is a concern going forward when the Dolphins face more talented competition, the team did just fine in other areas to mask the running game's problems.

      Quarterback Ryan Tannehill began his second season as the starter and had a solid day completing 63% of his passes for 272 yards, a touchdown and one interception. Tannehill's touchdown in the 3rd quarter, a 34 yard pass to Brian Hartline, gave the Dolphins the lead that they would never relinquish. Hartline had a monster day as he caught 9 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. Free agent wide receiver additions Brandon Gibson had 7 receptions for 77 yards and Mike Wallace had one reception for 15 yards.

      While the passing game looked good, the defense stole the show as they picked off Brandon Weeden three times and sacked him six times. They also held Trent Richardson to just 47 yards rushing. Cameron Wake had 2.5 sacks and rookie Dion Jordan contributed his first career sack late in the 4th quarter.

      The Dolphins open the season 1-0 and are tied for first place in the AFC East with the New England Patriots and New York Jets. The Dolphins will travel to Indianapolis next week to take on the 1-0 Colts.
