The Atlanta Falcons first team looked better than did the Miami Dolphins first team. After that, everything turned into preseason football. The Dolphins tacked on a touchdown from Matt Moore to Roberto Wallace just before the half to make it 17-14.
At one point Shann Schillinger gave up a long catch, going for a big hit instead of wrapping up. Chris Owens cleaned up the mess. Schillinger then came up tight in run coverage, spoiling a rushing attempt. Shortly afterward, UDFA Darrin Walls got burned by speedy Edmond Gates near the end zone -- it would've been a touchdown if Moore could've dropped it in.
The defensive line has been getting decent pressure all night. Trey Lewis was the latest to arrive near Matt Moore. On a subsequent play, Laurence Sidbury and Peria Jerry convinced him to take flight. Even on that touchdown, Moore ended up on the turf.
The Falcons line had kept John Parker Wilson clean until a blitzing Jimmy Wilson slipped through a crevice left when Garrett Reynolds assisted with a DL.
