Dolphins Tickets For This Week’s Match-Up With Falcons Surprisingly Affordable

The Miami Dolphins are without a doubt one of the NFL’s best surprises at 2-0 through two weeks, as they’ve disposed of the Cleveland Browns at home and took care of business against the Indianapolis Colts on the road in week two.

While things are looking up for the Fins right now, they didn’t always appear to bright in the off-season. Miami got a lot of criticism for supposedly “over-spending” on free agent talents such as Mike Wallace and Dannell Ellerbe, but through two weeks Ellerbe has an impressive 20 tackles and Wallace shined in Miami’s week two win.

Hindsight is always 20/20, but now the Dolphins’ off-season changes truly did make them a better team. The questionable decision to switch from Reggie Bush to Lamar Miller at running back was another problem area on paper, but after Miller bounced back in week two from a soft week one showing, Miami is starting to look solid in yet another former area of concern.

Come week three, the Dolphins will have a chance to knock down another wall: whether or not they have the goods to be more than just an improved team – and actually become a playoff team.

While there is some skepticism aimed towards Miami’s way, the Dolphins are actually shaping up as the favorites (-.5 to -1.5) over the Atlanta Falcons, who will be coming into Miami at 1-1.

Despite Miami’s big moves and hot start, Miami Dolphins tickets are still just $151 on average at home, with this particular game being just $111 on average (a whopping 26% below the home game season average) with a $28 get-in price tag.

While there is no lock the Dolphins get past a talented Atlanta team and get to 3-0, there is no doubt the value is terrific in this tickets and that the Dolphins are arguably still underrated as a whole.

More specifically, Miami’s chances to win this matchup increase with the news that starting Falcons running back Steven Jackson will sit out this week with a thigh injury. Add in some more injuries to Atlanta’s defense and an ineffective Roddy White (ankle) through two weeks, and this one gets even more interesting for Miami.

The Dolphins will still have to bring their ‘A’ game for this one, but if they can top the Falcons, they could be 3-0 and having all of Florida talking playoffs by the end of the week.
