Atlanta Falcons Vs. Miami Dolphins Score: Chris Owens Gives Up TD, Defense Otherwise Solid

Perhaps the most-contentious training camp battle on the Atlanta Falcons roster: nickel back, where incumbent Chris Owens faces off with Dominique Franks and supposedly Rafael Bush. A 44-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Brian Hartline with Owens in coverage will count as a point against Owens.

Harry Douglas has added a couple catches to his earlier touchdown, with one a reception in traffic despite a face masking penalty.

In other position battles, Garrett Reynolds got blown up once in pass protection but has yet to otherwise do anything to make the casual eye notice him. John Parker Wilson, making a bid for a future backup job, is doing a good job of getting the ball out quickly, but threw a pick to a lunging Benny Sapp when he failed to lead Douglas on an out route. Mike Peterson, who's already accepted a backup spot, scored a sack.

Matt Moore, former Carolina Panthers QB, took over for Henne. I remember this guy. Pretty annoying to watch your team play against him, as he is so skittery. Corey Peters did a fantastic job of generating enough pressure to get Moore skittering out of the pocket and into an awkward throw. Atlanta's defense, except for that touchdown, is looking pretty good.
