The 2-2 Dolphins travel to Atlanta to play the 3-1 Falcons. The Falcons are 9.5 point favorites over our Dolphins. Can Jay Cutler and the Dolphins offense finally get on track?
Stay tuned Dolphins fans, 1:00PM on CBS, or your favorite streaming site!
Dolphins beat the home favorite Falcons in a stunning upset as Dolphins drive late in the game to break the 20-20 tie and win it with less than a minute to go with a 48 yard Cody Parkey FG. The Dolphins seal the win with a Cordrea Tankersley INT of Matt Ryan with 33 seconds remaining.
Ajayi —– 26/130 and a 5 yard average
Harris held the edge on a play today that 3 wks ago went for a long run cuz he flashed up field too soon
Landry — 8/62 and a TD
Stills 4/49 and a TD
Front 7 look real good, and Tank is getting it done. It’s clear Allen is a negative, but Jones is a player, and Howard is doing alright, but they pick on him sometimes, and he hasn’t been able to stop them.
Yes Howard has been getting picked on a LOT. Drooling over the D when we get McDonald in the games
Allen has been solid as well. He’s still part of the defense that doesn’t allow many points. Teams are going to make plays sometimes, especially ones with talent. We faced one of the best offenses today in their building, held them to 17 and shut them out in the 2nd half. Not easy to do and hard to say anyone is a weak link right now.
Howard, Tankersley and McCain are all still developing. All 24 years old with Tank turning 24 in a month. Jones is playing all-pro, Allen has kept things in front of him, and McDonald is on the way after the next 3 games. 🙂
Good to see Phillips back and playing well
He played really well. Like a fire lit under his ass and he wanted to prove it. LOL
I didn’t check how many snaps he was out there but he definitely was disruptive on a lot of plays. One Suh/Wake sack was really because if him. He blew up the very next play after it, and he had a few times where I saw him hustling on plays and being involved down field. Suh is in on a ton of plays away from him, that’s really a testament to his work ethic.
Phillips drops in coverage well and destroys the passing lane by his shear size. LOL
I saw Ryan have a WTF look and I believe the play went for nothing as he was pressured. Maybe even sacked. I’m trying to remember it. But it made an impact.
Vincent Taylor knocked down a pass did he not?
He’s been solid as well. The FO did a good job adding young talent to what they already had. Then add a vet LB like Timmons, DL Hayes, S Allen and even now a guy like Maualuga. McDonald waiting in the wings. 🙂
Besides talent, the defense is playing better because the tackling is much improved. It was an emphasis all offseason and it really paid off.
I’m a huge fan of defense and having my team play it well is a lot of fun. 🙂
Our defense is really good. If we can get any offense we can be a playoff team
It’s fun isn’t it? 🙂
The offense is showing signs of coming out of it even if rather slow. LOL
I am not sold on the offense yet but at least they played well enough to win with the way the D has played
The AFC is wide open.
That it is and the Pats are not the team they used to be
Sold on the offense? LOL – Who is? They did just enough today.
Wasn’t sure what to make of D last week after beating up depleted Tenn team. No question what to make of it after beating the Falcons in Atlanta
Nate Allen plays centerfield a lot. Even Jones drops deep on a lot of plays. We definitely play a don’t get beat over the top defense even though we did today. Once! That’s the difference. Not 2-3 times per game, just once. 17, 20, 20, 10, 17. That’s not easy to do in a passing league where rules favor more points than that.
The Jets lost and the Ravens lost so we are ahead of them in the Wild Card race. LOL
We are the 2nd Wild Card team at this moment.
Actually, only 3 teams in the AFC have a better record than we do, and one of those must play tonight yet.
LOL @ the wildcard race after 6 weeks. Not making fun of you, Naples. I love your positivity. Maybe just a little early for that. LOL
Can Wake and Suh in competition for DPOY imo
Now I am in the mood to fest
And only 3 teams have a better record in the NFC than we do, and one of those just lost Aaron Rodgers for the season.
I’ll say this, the Jets are no pushover at all. They practically beat the Patriots today, if not for the officials taking away a TD from ASJ, which was complete and utter bullshit. McCown is playing solid football, and their defense is always a challenge.
Hey Toba – I’m watching Carnival Eats on the Cooking Channel, and they’re at the Red River Exhibition in this episode. Have you ever been there? Are you somewhat near it?
Hey Mike E yes have been there on occasion, that would be the equivalent of our State Fair , comes to town every June .. it is in Winnipeg where i live , on opposite side of city. 45 min drive. Did they have Little Bones Wings ??
WC and division titles may come down to last week this year. Most teams that would qualify for wither are separated by like 1 game right now
Reshad with the INT- not Tankersley!
Tank made it happen, deflected it right to Jones. Close enough! lol
Team defense and win.
The Aaron Rodgers loss is not just bad for him and the Packers, but for the NFL. He’s such a good QB.
This is the Gase brilliance we have been waiting for!
NICE TEAM WIN, PHINS!!!
Saw the highlights, saw the stats, read the blog comments, and tracked the game while at work today. Our O-Line didn’t give up any sacks, only gave up 2 QB hits, and they paved the way for Ajayi to go over 125 yards. Excellent work!
Cutler’s still dinkin’-n-dunkin’, but at least he had a little more zip on the ball this week. Observation: there’s something funky with his throwing motion: it looks like he’s shooting darts rather than throwing a football. His 4.6 YPCompletion today is up a yard from last week, but it’s still HORRIBLE. And his 76.7 passer rating today is quite obviously sub-par. I maintain something is physically wrong with him, but he looked slightly better this week than last.
Reshad ROCKS. PRIMETIME plays by Jarvis and Hayes. Parkey is a NICE Kicker. Gase made GREAT adjustments after halftime on both sides of the ball. Jake Brendel caught my eye in the Ajayi highlights, getting out smoothly to the second-level like Pouncey does.
So now we can add a concussion to Pouncey, along with his hip problems… hopefully he recovers soon. If he misses an extended amount of time (as has been predicted)… NOT GOOD.
WHAT A COME-FROM-BEHIND VICTORY AGAINST THE REIGNING NFC CHAMPS!!!
THE ’72 DOLPHINS RECORD as the only undefeated team in NFL history will stand for another year. The Chiefs, the last undefeated team this season, just lost to the Steelers 19-13!! ___ALL HAIL THE ’72 DOLPHINS!!
Have a cold one, on me, Old Dolfan!!!
Hail the ’72 Dolphins!
Pop the champagne fellas
Stick a fork in the Chefs*!!!
1972 Miami Dolphins… STILL the only undefeated team in NFL HISTORY!!!
What a great second half! And, a great send-off as we head to Florida and the fest tomorrow.
plus 2 other contenders with the Dolphins for a playoff spot lost, Jax and Oakland.
Here’s hoping the falcons are angry after losing 2 in a row and go in to Foxboro hot to prove something.
Here’s hoping the Buccaneers and Fitzpatrick go into Orchard Park angry and hot to prove something next week.
How about PSU at number 2!!!!!!!!!!
YESSIR!!! Hope ya saw my post to you on Friday night!!! 😀

#Dolphins have never lost a game (9-0) when #JayAjayi rushes for 77 or more yards in a game. #STUD 🐬🐬🐬
Hey M13, i watched the game (for a change, been lots of radio broadcasts for me this year) and your quote of the QB hits tells me that hits and the PD stat are both super dependent on who’s keeping the boxscore. Maybe if it results in a penalty they don’t call it a QB hit? They were called for at least 2 if not 3 roughing the passer on ugly hits. Cutler got pretty roughed up today overall.
Anyone else feel this way? Just my take on what I saw, but wondering if I’m alone….
Proud of the OL at any rate. Ajayi was able to assert his will and without Pouncey they still got it done and won the game.
He got thoroughly walloped on one play, one guy crushed him, the other helmet to helmet hit that looked pretty bad, but to his credit, he got right back up. There were a couple of other hits too, but that one is fresh in my mind
I thought the Falcons got pressure pretty consistently today, but Cutler was adept at stepping up in the pocket and moving out when it collapsed. He definitely took more than 2 shots, so yeah, it must not count as a QB hit when the play is negated by penalty which is kinda silly since the QB doesn’t suddenly not feel that hit, lol.
well but that is why they throw the flag and that is why those punks don’t get a stat in their favor nor do our guys lose one … because you don’t reward illegal plays.
We can’t hold our OL guilty if some jackass takes 2.5 steps after the play and smacks Cutler as he did today.

Here’s hoping the falcons are angry after losing 2 in a row and go in to Foxboro hot to prove something.
Also the Falcons should want payback for the Super Bowl meltdown loss.
yes absolutely … hopefully Julio is back to full strength
Not sure what the timeline is on Sanu, but hopefully he’s back too!
Also, hopefully the refs used their quota of bullshit calls to help the Patriots win for this month
might actually be the case
I saw you talking about the BS one that took a Jest TD away earlier. I was about to look it up, then thought “why bother?” I’m sure it’s the same BS we’ve seen the refs do a hundred times for the Pets.

I’m getting my QB hits and PD stats from ESPN, and I can tell ya that they only count the plays that COUNT (the official record, if you will). You ARE correct… Cutler got hit on a few plays that got called back due to penalty (un-necessary roughness was one of the calls).
And we should also keep in mind that Cutler threw an INT that got called back due to penalty.
Yeah, man. I think your point is VERY valid, to be sure. Cutler did get roughed up today.
So in short — and in the reality of things — Cutler was hit about 5 times (HARD, a couple of time). That’s something that the boxscore will never account for. Good post.
Kong – It’s worth a look. It may have been one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen
lol, not surprised.
Krishna, send me your cell number if you want so we can reach you to see about Friday night.
Have a safe trip, have fun see you next week
So have we won the last 3 fest games?
I believe so
…old man can’t remember but I think we won
Well, let’s keep it going 🙂
I think we lost the one before the Texans
That was Tennessee
But we won the year before that I think
We lost to Packers 3 fests ago
This could have been a 15 yarder!
Way to keep your head Kiko!!!
