It seemed as if for the second week in a row, the Falcons’ offense was going to be held out of the end zone. After a successful 53-yard field goal by Younghoe Koo, the team was held scoreless until late in the fourth quarter against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.
Running backs Caleb Huntley and D’Onta Foreman scored Atlanta’s first two touchdowns of the preseason. However, by that point, the game was well out of hand and the Dolphins walked away from Week 2 with a 37-17 victory over Atlanta.
Let’s see how the people of Twitter reacted to the Falcons’ second preseason loss.
Two preseason games down. One to go.

I pray to God our 1st string doesn’t get hurt this year or it’s going to be a brutal 17 game season

Great point by @DjShockley3 on the broadcast that this is a great rep opportunity that they can’t replicate in a practice. Really close, but the #Falcons finally score their first touchdown of the season.
