Falcons @ Dolphins Week 7 open thread

The bye week is long over, and it’s time for the Falcons to shoot for a .500 record.

The Falcons are off their bye week and looking to win their third game in four weeks, a victory that would bring them to .500 for the first time since Week 2 of the 2019 season. Their opponent will be the struggling Miami Dolphins, a team with plenty of talent but awful results to this point.

I don’t have to tell you how nice it would be to see this team win and win handily, adding more evidence to the idea that this is a franchise headed in the right direction and capable of handling the most favorable matchups on its schedule. With a healthier roster this week and a reeling opponent, that should be the outcome, but the Falcons have made it clear that we can’t count on that outcome. We’ll hope for the best.

Use this as your open thread for the game, and go Falcons!
