TANNEHILL THROWS TD PASS IN FINAL MINUTE
The Miami Dolphins are 3-0 for the first time since 2002 after a 27-23 comeback victory Sunday against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. Down by 3 with just under four minutes to go, the Dolphins drove 75 yards in 13 plays that ended in quarterback Ryan Tannehill connecting with rookie tight end Dion Sims for the game winning 1 yard touchdown pass.
This victory did not come easy for the Dolphins as they were missing starting DT Paul Soliai, CB Dimitri Patterson for the entire game and lost star DE Cameron Wake and LB Koa Misi during the game to injuries. Wake is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a sprained MCL. The Dolphins also found themselves down 10-0 and 20-10 during the course of the game. What usually turns into a typical Dolphins letdown turned into a major statement win for this franchise.
Tannehill had another strong day going 24 of 35 for 236 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Wide receiver Brian Hartline led the day receiving with 4 receptions for 56 yards and 1 touchdown.
The 3-0 Dolphins head to New Orleans next Monday to take on the 3-0 Saints in what will likely be the NFL's game of the week.
