FPI: Fins need some help in playoff race

The battle for the AFC East crown has been a tight one early, though ESPN's FPI overwhelmingly favors the Patriots to take the division (83.5 percent) for an unprecedented ninth straight time. The Dolphins and their sputtering offense, meanwhile, have less than a 20 percent chance of reaching the postseason.

Cutler beat the Falcons' blitz

Jay Cutler wasn't fazed by the Falcons' blitz Sunday, completing 12-of-15 passes for 109 yards and a TD when the Falcons sent extra rushers.

The Falcons are known for blowing leads (i.e. Super Bowl). But to the Dolphins? That would be a bad look for the reigning NFC champs.

Cool play call from Adam Gase on the Jay Cutler TD pass to Jarvis Landry. Motion Landry into the backfield and force the Falcons secondary to rotate. That allowed Landry to release back to the flat for an easy score. Cutler has now thrown two TD passes today.
