The Dolphins are coming off of a disappointing season in 2015 in which they finished 6-10 and in last place of the AFC East.

Head Coach Adam Gase is the youngest head coach in the NFL

The poor showing led to the firing of head coach Joe Philbin who was replaced by Adam Gase. At 38 years of age, Gase will be the youngest head coach in the NFL this season and seventh head coach since Miami replace Dave Wannstedt in 2004.

Despite being of the top spending teams in NFL free agency during the 12-year span, Miami has only made the playoffs once since 2002.

In 2008, the Dolphins lost a Wild Card game at home to the Baltimore Ravens 27-9. Miami hasn’t won a playoff game since defeating the Indianapolis Colts on December 30, 2000 in the Wild Card round.

Led by Pro-Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones, the Atlanta Falcons should provide a stiff test for the new head coach and his defense.

This will be the Dolphins third game of the 2016 preseason, which is considered to be the most important of the games that do not officially count.

Coaches and players use the third game of the exhibition season as a dress rehearsal for the regular season. Many of the starters play well into the third quarter. Those same starters do not even put on a uniform for the fourth and final game of the preseason.
