Here's a look at how Browns rookies fared in Cleveland's 17-16 Week Three victory vs. Miami:

DT Phil Taylor — Taylor, who has played very well thus far, notched seven tackles and recorded a sack in Cleveland's win. The sack came on a 3rd-and-goal play at Cleveland's five, and Miami had to settle for a field goal. He also returned to the game after suffering an MCL sprain early and played at a high level. However, Taylor was penalized for unnecessary roughness on a tackle of QB Chad Henne in the fourth quarter, giving Miami a 21-yard gain and a first down on a drive that ended in a field goal, giving Miami a 16-10 lead.

DE Jabaal Sheard — Positive: Sheard had only one tackle, but he got good pressure off the edge. Negative: He was penalized for grabbing Henne's facemask as Cleveland looked to have forced a punt at the Miami five-yard line. The penalty gave the Dolphins a first down, and from there, they would string together a long drive, and PK Dan Carpenter's 41-yard field goal put Miami in front 13-10.

WR Greg Little — Little played 50 snaps vs. Miami, head coach Pat Shurmur said Monday. He didn't start, and he didn't have a catch in the first three quarters, but he was productive on Cleveland's game-winning TD drive, catching three passes for 24 yards.

FB Owen Marecic — Marecic, who has started all three games, had one rush for three yards vs. Miami.

OLG Jason Pinkston — Pinkston started his third consecutive regular-season game. The Browns rushed four times off left guard for 22 yards vs. Miami.
