Quick Take: Thomas tries to escape doghouse

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Wednesday's preseason games

» Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas did his best to climb out of Dolphins coach Joe Philbin's doghouse. He ran hard, bouncing off tacklers for 31 yards on five carries.

» Ryan Tannehill went 6-of-8 for 41 yards in two series. The Dolphins had a three and out and a long drive capped by a short field goal against the Dallas Cowboys' backups. That's progress.

» Cowboys third-string quarterback Stephen McGee started the game and did nothing to make us think Dallas will keep him on the roster.

» We really wanted the Dolphins to win so the "Hard Knocks" finale wouldn't be so depressing.
