The Atlanta Falcons are coming off their bye week where they will meet up with the Miami Dolphins.
Miami has been struggling all season on the offensive side of the ball but sit at 2-2. The last time we saw the Falcons they lost to the Bills by the score of 23-17. In that Bills game we had both Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu injured on offense.
The Miami Dolphins are coming into this match up a little banged up. With Wide Receiver DeVante Parker and Jay Ajayi both being limited or not practicing this week. Last week the Dolphins struggled to get anything going for them on offense against the Titans but thats where the defense stepped up and made the plays to secure a 16-10 win. Jay Cutler has looked like what we all thought he’d look like when he got signed.
The Falcons are coming in off their bye week, and having lost the week prior, they are looking forward at getting back and playing a very fast and physical game. Sanu and Upshaw were ruled out for this weeks game but we will have Jones and Beasley returning for this game. It wouldn’t surprise me to see these guys be limited throughout the game so the injuries don’t resurface for the future.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Falcons come out the gates on fire on both the offense and the defense. This game could get out of hand early with the Dolphins struggling to score at all this season (averaging 10.25 points per game). I would expect the Falcons to drop 30+ points for the 3rd time this season and go to 4-1 and have a full game lead over the Panthers in the division.
The game will be televised at 1:00pm on Sunday on CBS
