After being held to 17 points in the opener, Atlanta's offense rebounded against St. Louis but was still too one-dimensional. The Falcons had only 36 rushing yards and have to rely on backups Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling to improve upon that. The defense has given up big chunks of yards but has limited the damage on the scoreboard, although the rash of injuries on that side of the ball leave numerous questions going into Sunday.
Second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill appears to be maturing, as he recorded his second career 300-yard passing game in a 24-20 win against the Colts, leaning on receiver Mike Wallace (nine catches, 115 yards, TD) and tight end Charles Clay (five catches, 109 yards). The Dolphins still need more out of running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, neither of whom is averaging more than three yards per carry.
LINE: Miami opened -1, moved to -2.5 before settling back at -1. The total opened at 44 and moved to 44.5.
COVERS POWER RANKINGS: Falcons (-4.0) - Dolphins (-1.0) + home field (-3.0) = Pick
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-90s with a 20 percent chance of rain.
* The favorite is 3-0-1 ATS in their last four meetings.
* The Under is 5-1 in Dolphins last six home games.
* The Falcons are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.
EJ Manuel has completed 68.2 percent of his passes and thrown for 446 yards with three TDs and one interception in his first two games. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who caught the winning scoring pass last week, has been his favorite target with 11 catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns while the two-pronged running attack of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson have combined to give Buffalo the league's fourth-best rushing attack at 142.5 yards per game.
Geno Smith guided New York to a last-second game-winning field goal in the season opener against Tampa Bay and had his team in position for a huge upset at New England before tossing three fourth-quarter interceptions. He is completing only 53.4 percent of his attempts and his 55.2 passer rating is next-to-last in the league. The tandem of Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell rushed for 100 yards versus the Patriots after combining for only 44 yards in the season opener, but the key to the game could hinge on New York's defense, which is tied for fourth in the league in allowing 59.5 yards on the ground.
LINE: The Jets opened as 1-point faves. The total opened at 39 and is now 38.5.
COVERS POWER RANKINGS: Bills (+5.0) - Jets (+5.0) + home field (-3.0) = Jets -3.0
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the high-60s with partly cloudy skies.
* The Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in New York.
* Road team is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings.
* Bills are 4-1 ATS in their last five vs. AFC East.
