About Atlanta Falcons

Last week Atlanta (2-0) trailed 13-10 at halftime, but outscored the Browns 14-0 in the second half. The Falcons gained 498 yards, including 224 on the ground. RB Devonta Freeman got Atlanta on the board with a first quarter 19-yard touchdown run.


About Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are coming off a blowout loss (41-14) to the Cowboys. Romo was 4 of 5 for 49 yards, and the Dallas offense had 300 yards at halftime.  Tannehill played late into the first half for the Dolphins (1-1) and had scoring passes of 13 and 3 yards to Stills.

Atlanta vs Miami NFL Preseason Week 3 Prediction

The Dolphins had a bad season last year and finished 6-10. So far this preseason, they have not looked any better. With Mike Pouncey sidelined, the Dolphins are not getting the pass protection they need to get Tannehill ready for the regular season. The Falcons have the better talent and I like that even though they trailed the Browns at halftime last week. They came out in second half and played to win the game. That is one of the most important things in preseason. Which team will play to win and which will play to work the game plan.
