He’s so explosive. He’s an unbelievable talent and an unbelievable competitor.”23844785_1741397565883962_4312240803940137512_nRyan himself finished 26-of-35 for 317 yards and a TD, while wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had a 51-yard touchdown pass to which Coach Quinn jokingly said he became confident with Sanu at QB after he completed the pass, especially after he wobbled the snap a little.

Sanu’s perfect pass rate left fans calling for him to play various other position all of which Coach Quinn said being the athlete that he is, he could probably do them all.

Miami Takes Advantage Of Undisciplined Plays To Comeback From 17 And Beat The Falcons

(SL) – What the heck happened? The Atlanta Falcons have some tweaking to do after blowing a 17 pt lead and losing to the Dolphins.
Atlanta got off to a quick start with its usual performance from Devonta Freeman. His speed was hard to contain and he was able to burst through gaining yards and adding to easy field position as the Falcons dominated and shutdown Miami’s run game all together in the first half.
Matt Ryan even connected with Marvin Hall for a beautiful 40-yard Touchdown pass that pretty much made fans wonder where he’s been all this time. Answer: The practice squad and he was promoted a day earlier because of an injury to starting receiver Mohamed Sanu.
22406267_1697220580301661_5276368061980464365_nThe falcons were rolling. Tevin Coleman scored on a 6-yard run, and Matt Bryant was good with the 50-yard field goal.
Miami was struggling and Jay Cutler (who put off retirement)  failed to connect any pass longer than 12 yards and was even picked off by Deion Jones late in the first half. The Falcons would return for the 3rd quarter up 17-0 and then somebody left the gate open.
It was as if they switched roles. Miami came out blazing with 15-plays that moved the ball 75 yards and then Cutler connected with Sills for the 11-yard TD.

Ryan would be haunted by interceptions once again. (He’s thrown 6 in the past 3 games) And undisciplined play would be costly.

The Falcons also botched a punt. The punter tried to picked it up and run but was tackled short of the first down. The Dolphins were set to move and capitalize on a 49-yard field goal which tied the game at 17.

Cody Parkey kicked a 39-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining and just like the Dolphins led 20-17.  Then…safety Reshad Jones intercepted Matt Ryan at the 6-yard line with 39 seconds left and that was all she wrote.

Jay Cutler was 19 of 32 for 151 yards while Matt Ryan finished 24 of 35 for 248 yards.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman Injured After Slipping In Shower
