OUR PICK: The third preseason game is always viewed as the dress rehearsal for NFL teams, with the starters usually playing the entire first half in preparation for the season to start. While the Falcons might be 2-0 this preseason, it has been their backups that have led the way in both victories. Their starters have not looked sharp, particularly quarterback Matt Ryan. A year ago these two teams met in the preseason and Miami's dominant defensive line abused Atlanta's O-line while sacking Ryan four times in the process. The Falcons no longer have to deal with Olivier Vernon, who signed with the Giants in the offseason, Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and now Mario Williams are still forces that Atlanta will contend with. The Dolphins are a good bet to cover tonight.
