The Miami Dolphins fell to 0-3 in the 2012 preseason, losing to the Atlanta Falcons Friday night by a score of 23-6. Any QB battle between Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore became a question of who was struggling worse, with Tannehill going 11-for-27 for 112 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception, and Moore finishing the night 4-for-12 for 49 yards. The Dolphins fumbled the ball three times, but were able to recover it twice.
The first team defense struggled to contain Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. Ryan was 18-fo4-26 for 220 yards, and Jones had four catches for 90 yards with a long of 49. If there was a silver lining in the game, it was that Miami did not suffer any major injuries to key players. That may be little consolation to a struggling offense, but it does ensure they can continue their best effort with their best personnel.
