The Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins meet up in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL preseason at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on FOX 5 in Atlanta and WFOR 4 (CBS) in Miami. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Falcons roster and the Dolphins roster.

The Dolphins were shut out in the second half of last week’s preseason opener at the Chicago Bears and ultimately fell 23-13. Starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa looked poised operating the offense but was picked off by DeAndre Houston-Carson in the endzone for a costly blemish on his stat sheet.

None of the Falcons’ primary starters were on hand in last weekend’s 23-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans as new head coach Arthur Smith worked out most of his backups. AJ McCarron and Feleipe Franks split reps at QB while the offense cycled through a committee of running backs and wide receivers getting touches.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this preseason contest, you’ll need to dig a little deeper for streaming options. While regular season games are usually available outside the two local markets, preseason games are much more limited. To view this game via live online stream, you’ll need to use NFL Game Pass. If you are not planning on watching every week of the preseason, the service offers a free seven-day trial.

The Dolphins are a 5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -240 on the moneyline. The Falcons are a +195 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 37.5, with the under juiced to -115.
