Falcons Vs. Dolphins Halftime Score: Jones, Offense Impressing As Atlanta Leads 9-3

Dirk Koetter's new offense continued to look good through the first half of play in Miami.

Though the red zone offense couldn't quite get things done, they still managed to put three field goals on the board and looked impressive through the air. Matt Ryan was 12-of-18 passing for 162 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions.

But the real star, yet again, was Julio Jones. He and Ryan connected on a dangerous pass that Jones came back for and turned into a 49-yard gain. He has four catches for 90 yards on the night. The offensive line did not look as good, allowing Cameron Wake to sack Ryan twice coming off the right side.

The defense, though they allowed their share of yards, continued to keep Tannehill and company out of the end zone. John Abraham came up with a nice play, sacking the rookie QB on third down and stripping the ball from his hands.

The starters should log at least some minutes in the third quarter, but soon enough we'll likely see the backups come in and play their part.
