8* Sunday NFL ATL/MIA
Atlanta vs. Miami,
09/22/2013 16:05 EDT,
Score: 23 - 27
Point Spread: -1/-125 Miami
The Miami Dolphins host the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon in Week 3 of the NFL season. Miami is coming off a 24-20 win, while Atlanta beat St. Louis in Week 2, 31-24.
The Dolphins didn’t catch a break to start their season when they drew a pair of road contests to start their schedule, but the team played well in those tough conditions, and they’re now better for it.
The team had an easy time with Cleveland, then snuck past Indianapolis.
Now they return home for their opener, and get to play in front of a raucous crowd that will be cheering for them, rather than against them.
The Dolphins made some major moves in the offseason, and those moves are already paying dividends, particularly at wide receiver, where Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson have really helped the development of Ryan Tannehill at quarterback.
The Falcons, meanwhile, are a different team on the road, as we saw in Week 1, when they could only muster 17 points against a bad New Orleans defense.
With injuries all over the field, Atlanta makes the trip to Miami in rough shape.
The Dolphins are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games.
