The Falcons are fresh off a bye week and will be a much healthier football team this week than they were against the Jets. They get to face a reeling Dolphins team that has dropped each of their last five games, has yet to put together a stellar end-to-end effort on offense, and is coming off a game in London just a week ago. If you can think of a better recipe for the Falcons to earn a win coming off the bye, I can’t really think of one, but typing that out made me cringe because this team likes to hurt us.
We’ll be watching and rooting for the outcome either way, and here’s all the information you need to do so today. Go Falcons!
Atlanta Falcons @ Miami Dolphins, Week 7
When: Sunday, October 24 at 1:00 p.m. EST
Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida
Announcers: Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston, Jennifer Hale
Streaming: Falcons app for local audiences; NFL Sunday Ticket nationally
Radio: 92.9 The Game
Key Questions: Will the Falcons have Kaleb McGary, and if not, will that loss impact the line’s ability to hold off a talented Miami front? Will the Dolphins offense prove to be more capable than it has been to this point against a so-so Falcons defense? Will the Falcons truly break out on offense with a fully healthy set of weapons?
Odds: The Falcons are -2 point favorites over the Dolphins according to DraftKings sportsbook.
