Ryan Tannehill passes for 272 yards, leads Dolphins to 23-10 win over Browns in opener

Ryan Tannehill passed for 272 yards and a touchdown, leading the Miami Dolphins to a season-opening 23-10 win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns, who fell to 1-14 in Week 1 since 1999.

Tannehill, who was given more offensive weapons for his second NFL season, threw a 34-yard TD pass to Brian Hartline in the third quarter and drove the Dolphins to a game-clinching TD in the fourth.

Daniel Thomas had a 1-yard scoring plunge with 6:48 left, putting the Dolphins up by 10.

Miami's Cameron Wake had 2½ sacks and the Dolphins' defensive line sacked Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden six times.

Weeden threw three interceptions and the Browns never got anything going in coach Rob Chudzinski's debut.

Rookie Caleb Sturgis kicked three field goals for the Dolphins.
