In case you missed it, check out our full-length preview from Friday afternoon. Now that we’ve said that, the Dolphins are opening up their home schedule against the Falcons today, and they are already 2-0 on the road thanks to some stellar defense and minor heroics from Ryan Tannehill.
We’ll have injury updates for you as the game gets closer (scroll to the top for “breaking news”), but as of this publishing, all of the “big guns” (Roddy White, Julio Jones, Asante Samuel) are expected to be on the field for Atlanta. This is huge for the depth-starved roster that was banged-up in a huge way this week with Sean Weatherspoon and Kroy Biermann (among others) being put on the shelf. However, there is a potentially dangerous injury in the form of left tackle Sam Baker, as he has been ruled out for today’s game. Keep an eye on the pass rush(especially from the outside) as the game progresses.
Our pals in Vegas have the Dolphins as a slight favorite (the consensus is a -1 line), but it’s time for the Falcons to prove them wrong in a big road game.
