A New Englander's perspective on the Dolphin's win over Atlanta

Living in Boston, MA I've seen the Patriots win a lot of games over the past decade or so. Sometimes they aren't always pretty. Just this past 2 weeks I saw the Patriots win games over the Bills and Jets, which aren't good teams by nfl standards, that they probably should've lost. However, the Patriots have a winning instinct, and somehow get the job done. After watching the Dolphins game against the Falcons, I can now say the Dolphins are on their way to having that same winning instinct. A game in which the defense was down several starters, and couldn't keep the Falcon's offense off the field, saw them make plays when it mattered most. On offense, Miami allowed 5 sacks, and wasn't really as sharp as they were versus the Colts. But In that final drive, Tannehill led a suberb drive ending with that beautiful one handed TD catch by the rookie Dion Sims. Just like that, a game in which the Dolphins lost in almost all statistical categories, they won. Just last season they most surely would've lost a game like today's. This team is getting the job done when it counts the most, and hopefully this gets contagious. They can become a dangerous team for their opponents going forward!
