Browns lead Dolphins, 7-6, at halftime

Posted Sep 8, 2013

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns held a 7-6 lead over the Miami Dolphins at halftime of the regular-season opener.

CLEVELAND -- A last-minute touchdown pass from quarterback Brandon Weeden to tight end Jordan Cameron gave the Cleveland Browns a 7-6 lead over the Miami Dolphins after the first half of play in the regular-season opener from FirstEnergy Stadium.

On second-and-goal from Miami’s seven-yard line, Weeden dropped back in the Shotgun formation and pump-faked over the middle before finding Cameron breaking open running toward the right corner of the end zone. The third-year tight end caught the pass and held on while he rolled out of bounds.

The Browns’ scoring drive covered 56 yards on 11 plays in 3:45.

Miami kicker Caleb Sturgis converted a 49-yard field goal, and extended the Dolphins’ lead to 6-0 over the Browns with 13:37 remaining in the first half of the regular-season opener.

The Dolphins’ scoring drive was set up by a Browns turnover.

On third-and-two from the Browns’ 27-yard line, Weeden dropped back and threw a pass to wide receiver Greg Little. The pass attempt tipped off Little’s hands and to Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who had the ball ricochet off his right hand and facemask before corralling the turnover at the line of scrimmage.

Courtesy of a 45-yard field goal from Sturgis, the Dolphins held a 3-0 lead over the Browns after one quarter of play in the regular-season opener.

Sturgis converted the 45-yard field-goal attempt, the first of his NFL career, and gave the Dolphins a 3-0 lead over the Browns with 1:29 to play in the first quarter. Sturgis’ kick capped off a 15-play, 58-yard drive that covered 7:17.
