In one hour, we’ll finally get the Falcons game we’ve waiteed two weeks for, when Atlanta challenges the Miami Dolphins. This team is home and has significant advantages in almost every facet you can think of, so I’m hopeful they’ll leave today 4-1 and in good spirits heading into Week 7’s road matchup with the New England Patriots.
I’m not going to be a dead horse (dolphin?) and re-hash what we know about Miami, which is that they are inept offensively thus far in 2017 but have a solid enough defense to give the Falcons some problems. Suffice to say Atlanta’s rightly favored here.
Here’s the key info you need. Be sure to follow along with our Twitter tracker if you’re so inclined, and use this as your open thread. Let’s get this win, Falcons!
