Atlanta vs Miami Game Preview
Why Atlanta Will Win
Can the Miami offense get going?
Tua Tagovailoa was great in London and Jaylen Waddle was terrific, but the O only put up 20 points in the loss to Jacksonville.
There’s no running game for Atlanta to worry about, and the defense isn’t stepping up enough. The secondary has allowed over 300 yards in three of the last four games, and the takeaways aren’t there to help out the other side.
Why Miami Will Win
There’s no Atlanta running game to worry about.
The Falcons hit 100 rushing yards for the first time since the opener, but that was against the Jets in London. The Miami run defense has been gouged a bit too much, but the big pops aren’t going to be there.
