Falcons Vs. Dolphins Score: Brent Grimes Picks Chad Henne, Sets Up Field Goal

Brent Grimes' name should always have an exclamation point after it. Brent Grimes! forced Chad Henne's second interception of the first quarter, skying to pull down the ball before running it back horizontally across the field.

John Parker Wilson took over at QB instead of Chris Redman. He used a sweet rollout -- the kind of play Matt Ryan doesn't really like -- to find an open Kerry Meier, who's returning after missing his rookie year due to injury. Wilson overthrew a tightly covered Justin Peelle. Wilson's next pass was tipped away.

Matt Bryant stepped right up and drilled a field goal to make it 17-0. That score doesn't really mean anything, but it's pretty.

So far the Falcons have outgained the Dolphins 163 yards to five. That means slightly more than does the score, but still just about nothing. Also pretty though.
