The Dolphins tried to give it away, but the Browns missed chances — and missed field goals, specifically — and the Dolphins eventually won in overtime, 30-24.
Jay Ajayi ran 11 yards for the winning touchdown after the teams had traded punts to start overtime.
The Browns won the overtime coin toss but elected to kick. It went to overtime because Browns kicker Cody Parkey missed a 46-yarder on the final play of regulation.
It was Parkey’s third miss of the game. The Browns just officially signed him Saturday after Patrick Murray suffered a torn ACL on Friday. The Browns had chosen to take a knee despite having a timeout with 20 seconds left at the Dolphins’ 28-yard line.
The Dolphins led by 11, 24-13, late in the third quarter before the Browns rallied. The Browns used ex-quarterback turned wide receiver Terrelle Pryor at quarterback and all over the field, really. Pryor threw for 35 yards, ran for 21 yards and a touchdown and caught eight passes for 144 yards.
Browns rookie quarterback Cody Kessler, making his first start, threw for 244 yards.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 319 yards but threw two interceptions, one that Briean Boddy-Calhoun returned for a touchdown in the first half. Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught seven passes for 120 yards.
The Dolphins move to 1-2 and are at Cincinnati Thursday night. The Browns fall to 0-3 and are at the Redskins next week.
