NFL Preseason: Miami Dolphins Vs. Atlanta Falcons Recap
August 29, 2015

Meanwhile, the Dolphins' defense held the Falcons to just 50 yards rushing on 24 carries. Atlanta took a 9-7 lead on Matt Bryant's field goal early in the fourth quarter, but Miami drove for two field goals late in the game to earn the victory. The Falcons were just 3-for-14 in converting third downs while Miami was 2-for-12 in the category.
NFL Preseason: Carolina Panthers Vs. Miami Dolphins Recap
August 22, 2015
The Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers lit up the scoreboard in their second preseason game of 2015 to the tune of 61 total points.
The home crowd Panther faithful were treated to regular season-like heart pounding action, as the game came down to a late 4th quarter 2-point conversion attempt by the Dolphins to try and tie the game. The Carolina reserve defense thwarted the Miami pass attempt on the conversion and the Panthers won their second straight preseason game.
Both starting quarterbacks, Ryan Tannehill and Cam Newton started the game, but Tannehill clearly outperformed Newton, missing on only 3 of his 15 passing attempts totaling over 100 yards, including 1 touchdown. Newton threw errant on over half of his 10 attempts, plus his lone rushing attempt of the evening netted 0-yards for a very lackluster showing.
The second and third units handled most of the duties on this warm summer evening at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, as many are playing for the privilege to make the regular season roster. As exciting as this game was for the players, nothing was lost on the fans in this gridiron thriller.
