Dolphins 'got a damn good football team'

If you didn't watch the game and merely started reading the box score, you'd be depressed.

Matt Ryan wasn't sacked.

Ryan Tannehill was sacked five times.

The Dolphins rushed for 90 yards.

The Falcons rushed for 146 yards.

The Falcons also won the turnover margin and time of possession.

Guess what?

Dolphins 27. Falcons 23.

It was a great come-from-behind victory. It was a game that led to a Gatorade shower in the locker room. And afterward, owner Stephen Ross left that very locker room and announced, "We got a damn good football team."

Now, my instincts are to suggest he slow his roll. But you know what?

Give it to him. And the Dolphins. This was a very fine win.

Really was.
