The Miami Dolphins have take a 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Browns into the second quarter of today's season opening contest. The Dolphins had to settle for a 45-yard field goal late in the corner for the only points scored during the period.

With the first quarter in the books, quarterback Ryan Tannehill is 7-for-11 for 56 yards, giving him a 76.3 passer rating. On the opposite side of the ball, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is 3-for-8 for 22 yards and two interceptions, giving him a passer rating of 6.3.

Nolan Carroll had the first pick off on a deep bomb from Weeden, coming down with the ball on the Miami one yard line. The second came as the first quarter was ending, with Dimitri Patterson acrobatically coming away with a tipped pass.

The Dolphins' running game has struggled to get going against the Browns' strong run defense, only gaining sox yards on seven carries between Lamar Miller and Ryan Tannehill.

The Dolphins have the ball as the second period begins.
