Backup Atlanta quarterback Dominique Davis added a 39-yard scoring toss to Tim Toone in the final quarter.

Miami rookie Ryan Tannehill, named the Dolphins' starter for the regular season, completed 11-of-27 passes for 112 yards and an interception. The Dolphins remained winless in exhibition action.
