Dolphins lose against Atlanta last night in Week 3 of the preseason. Even though they showed off strong in the first two preseason games, last night’s loss shows a couple signs of the inconsistency that has plagued the Dolphins for as long as many of us can remember. Here’s an excerpt from The Miami Herald regarding last night’s game:
Friday night at Sun Life Stadium, the Dolphins world was flat. Flat on offense, as the first team managed only 66 total yards against Atlanta’s first-team defense before a final first-half drive that ended with an end-zone interception. Flat on defense as, aside from ubiquitous cornerback Vontae Davis knocking the ball out of Falcons hands everywhere but the Atlanta locker room, it was left to Atlanta to stop Atlanta’s first-team offense. And, finally, flat out not as competitive against a playoff contending team as the flatly misleading final score of 16-6.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano called the performance “sloppy.”
“Too many penalties and they were more physical than us on both sides of the ball,” safety Yeremiah Bell said.
“It’s better to have these hiccups now than in the season,” guard Richie Incognito said.
