Post Dolphins Vs. Falcons: By the numbers
Quote:
DOLPHINS

-- Dolphins (2-0) haven't started 3-0 since 2002.

-- Dolphins went without a penalty last week for first time in 15 seasons.

-- Miami has yet to allow any points in the fourth quarter.

-- Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has been sacked nine times, which is tied for second-most in NFL. RT Tyson Clabo has allowed three of those sacks.

-- Miami is tied for the NFL lead with nine sacks.

-- The Dolphins are tied for second in NFL with four interceptions.

-- Dolphins opponents have a passer rating of 62.4, fourth lowest in league.

-- Dolphins are averaging 2.4 yards per rush, third worst in NFL.

-- Miami has allowed five completions of 20 or more yards, two of 40 or more yards.

-- Dolphins WRs have two touchdown catches after having only three three all of last season.

-- Brian Hartline is Miami's leading receiver with 14 receptions, 182 yards and a touchdown.

-- Dolphins long snapper John Denney is set to break the franchise record he shares with Jason Taylor when he plays in 131st consecutive game Sunday.

-- Despite being 2-0, Miami has been outgained 739 yards to 673.

FALCONS

-- Falcons QB Matt Ryan has completed 71.6 percent of passes, second best in NFL (Tony Romo).

-- Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez is off to a slow start (seven receptions, 69 yards) but could awaken this week, considering the problems the Dolphins have had covering tight ends.

-- Atlanta's Matt Bosher, who attended the University of Miami, leads league with average of 49.9 yards per punt.

-- Falcons coach Mike Smith is 16-4 against the AFC.

-- Atlanta has run the ball an NFL-low 30 times and will be without RB Steven Jackson because of a thigh injury.

QUOTABLE

"We've got playmakers at every position on this team." -- Dolphins DT Jared Odrick.

Atlanta 31
Miami 24

Even with losses to the Falcons and Saints, a win against the Ravens would give the team a strong 3-2 record through a crappy schedule.
