Pro Football Network: Falcons 24, Dolphins 23
Ben Rolfe writes: "The situation surrounding this game is intriguing. Miami is flying straight back from their London game while the Falcons are coming off a bye week after a London game. The Dolphins just lost a heartbreaker that left major question marks surrounding the future of Brian Flores. Trusting either of these teams is close to impossible in Week 7. The Falcons will be more rested, and the heat and humidity of Miami — which can upset some visiting teams — should not have a major effect on Atlanta."
Sportsnaut: Dolphins 27, Falcons 23
Vincent Frank writes: "The additions of Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller to work with young Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is going to make for a dynamic offense in South Beach. It’s also the type of offense (speed) that Atlanta’s defense should struggle with. That will lead to a devastating Falcons loss against a team it should be on par with right now."
CBS Sports: Dolphins 24, Falcons 17
Patrik Walker writes: "The bye week is now in the rearview after a trip across the pond, giving the Falcons two weeks to prepare for the Dolphins. The absence of Julio Jones looms large here though, considering the Dolphins secondary is an impressive one. They drop this one in South Florida, and it's because they needed one more TD than they could get (the one Jones likely would've gotten)."
Fansided: Dolphins will win game vs. Falcons in Week 7
Brady Hamilton writes: "No bye week this year after the London game. The Dolphins get right back to Miami where they host the Falcons. The Falcons just traded away Julio Jones and they look to be somewhere in between a rebuild and wildcard contender. I think this is a matchup that easily favors the Dolphins. The defense makes the big difference when they slow down the Falcons offense. The Dolphins win by double digits as they get ready for a very tough road game."

Draft Kings: Go with Falcons in Week 7 NFL game vs. Dolphins
Cole Huff writes: "Although there’s plenty of talent on both of these offenses, neither of these teams has shown an ability to put up many points. Also, there could be some rust from the Falcons after the long break as well as fatigue from Miami. It would be wise to monitor the points totals throughout the week and place a bet accordingly."

Matt Johnson writes: "The health of the Miami Dolphins secondary will greatly impact the outcome of Week 7. If Miami is missing Xavien Howard and/or Byron Jones, the Atlanta Falcons can score with ease. But at least one of them should return, which means this clash comes down to the wire."
