Three Dolphins players to watch for in Cleveland Browns Week 12 tilt
The Cleveland Browns are looking to win their third straight game when they take on the Miami Dolphins to finish out their three-game homestand on Sunday.
The Cleveland Browns finally got things going in the right direction…sort of. The Browns notched their second win in a row when they took their division rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, down on Thursday Night Football. The sweet victory left a bitter aftertaste when Myles Garrett was provoked into making a very regrettable decision that will leave the uber-talented defensive end suspended for the foreseeable future.
While it appears that Garrett’s season may be over, the Browns are very much still in the hunt. Literally. After their win against the Steelers, the Browns now appear in the infamous ‘in the hunt’ bracket for the wildcard playoff spots. So, you’re saying there’s a chance!?!
To keep their hopes alive the wins need to keep coming. This week the Browns will take on the Miami Dolphins to finish out their three-game homestand. Having won the previous two games, FirstEnergy Stadium should be quite a home-field advantage for their beloved Browns.

The Dolphins, who were earlier this season thought to be shoe-ins for the first overall pick, have recently shown signs of life. Winners of two of their last three games, the Dolphins will not be the easy prey that they were thought to be the first two months of the season. The Browns will need all of their focus on their upcoming opponent, or fans could be leaving the stadium disappointed.
Even with a depleted defense, the Browns still have enough talent on that side of the ball to be able to handle what the Dolphins bring to the table. The Browns are going to have to have the next man up mentality on the defensive line, potentially being without three of their four starters. The same could be said for strong safety, but that position has been a revolving door all season.
The Browns offense has been finding their way in spurts over the last couple of games. The addition of Kareem Hunt has definitely provided a spark for that unit, and they should be looking to keep the progress moving against the Dolphins.
With Pittsburgh looming in Week 13, the Browns need to keep focused on the task at hand and not let their matchup with the Dolphins become a “trap game”.
Now let’s take a look at three Dolphins to watch for in the Browns Week 12 tilt.
