What defensive team will show up for the Atlanta Falcons game?

The Dolphins host the Falcons this coming Sunday. The Falcons had a bye-week and should be ready to play well against the Dolphins. This may be another close game depending on our defense which has been porous against the run and in the air. They have been giving up way too much ground and points that have given victory after victory to our opponents.
When will the D put the team in a position to win a game? The offense seemed to improve with Tua. Gesicki and Waddle completed numerous passes against the lowly Jaguars and that was good to see. Hopefully, we see more of the same. What is lacking is a running game--same old story--different season. Not being able to get 1 yard on 4th down to keep a drive alive tells a lot. Brown, if he sees action again, needs to find a crack and drive forward, not dance and then try to gain 36 inches. To me, this lack of pounding the ball was plan stupid. Also, a 36" run should not start from the shotgun position. Tua should have been under center and then handed-off to Brown who should have pounded forward. Ugh! I hope the OC, whoever it is, doesn't make that asinine mistake again.
