I took a few screenshots from the Dolphins-Falcons preseason game (starters vs. Starters).

What I have noticed is that Matt Ryan is very good at misdirection plays. The dolphins defense will need to stay disciplined and execute at 110%. You can see how they scored a TD against our starters on 4th and 1. Everyone including Gase on the sideline moved to the right and left the RB wide open for a TD.

The LB's (Kiko and Timmons) will need to follow their gap assignments and remain disciplined. They are very good at executing screen plays which we all know how vulnerable Dolphins Defense is when they run screens at us.

Suh has a tendency to overpursue plays and he will be a big factor because the Falcons like to run right at you.

2 very good WR for the Falcons (Sanu and Jones)
... Gabriel can do some damage too against Bobby MCcain or Verner.

The only way to stop them is a consistent pass rush and Burke is very good at disguising his blitzes. If we give matt Ryan time, he will shred this defense just like the hurricane did.
