The Miami Dolphins trail the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 9-3 at halftime of their preseason game. Ryan Tannehill is 11-for-25 for just 112 yards in the first half with one interception and no touchdowns.
Miami was only outgained by Atlanta in the first half by nine yards, 175 to 166, but despite that, the offense has not looked good, collecting only two drives that went beyond six plays.
Matt Ryan has thrown for 162 yards and the Dolphins defense has given up a handful of big plays, including a connection between Ryan and Julio Jones that went 51 yards, but they have repeatedly stiffened up and forced the Falcons to settle for field goals.
Things seemed to pick up for Tannehill in the final two minutes, where he connected with Davone Bess multiple times, including one pass for 17 yards. That drive faltered when Miami faced a 4th-and-1, went for it and came up short on a Tannehill incompletion.
Preseason football is sometimes tough to read, but Dolphins fans can't be happy with what they saw out of Tannehill in the first half.
