The Miami Dolphins and the Atlanta Falcons will clash on Sunday in a big game for both teams in Week 6 of the NFL 2017 regular season. The game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and takes place from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).
The Dolphins dare not lose today if they are to keep up with the pace in the extremely competitive AFC East division. Not one team in the division currently has a losing record and things are as tight as can be with the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, and New England Patriots all stuck on 3-2.
The Dolphins, having had their Week 1 game postponed, are in the basement right now with a 2-2 record, but know a win today can keep them in the mix.
Meanwhile, the Falcons have had a strong start to the new season and are on 3-1 coming into this week's group of games.
Their nearest rivals, the Carolina Panthers, lost earlier this week and have dropped back to 4-2, meaning the Falcons have to win today to capitalize on that result and try to take charge of the NFC South division.
Earlier this week in the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers squared off for Thursday Night Football, with the Eagles eventually coming out on top 28-23 in a tight game of football.
Both teams came into that match up on 4-1, but it was the Eagles who came away improving their record to 5-1, where as the Panthers dropped back to 4-2 following a bruising encounter.
Cam Newton had the chance for a game winning drive, but the Panthers came up just short when the quarterback's fourth down throw bounced on the ground.
With that win the Eagles are emerging as real contenders for the NFC. They are being led admirably by Carson Wentz, who threw three more touchdowns on Thursday night. Oppositely, Cam Newton threw three interceptions, which proved costly for Carolina.
Things had been looking good for the Panthers, as they took a 10-3 lead in the first half, with Wentz not able to get going at all for the Eagles.
However, when Luke Kuechly left late in the second quarter following a concussion, the game was turned on its head, and suddenly Wentz was able to find a lot more time on the ball and was able to drive the Eagles into scoring position after scoring position.
