How to watch the Dolphins vs. the Falcons on Sunday.

The Falcons host the Dolphins on Sunday in a matchup of two teams looking to keep pace in their respective division races. 

Miami comes into the contest off an ugly 16-10 win over a Tennessee Titans team quarterbacked by Matt Cassel, but they're dealing with a bizarre distraction. On Sunday night, video surfaced of then-offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a white substance that appeared to be cocaine. Foerster resigned from his position on Monday.

The Dolphins are 2-2 but have been largely uninspiring, particularly on offense. Miami is dead last in the NFL with just 925 total yards in four games, and the Dolphins are are also dead last in passing offense (156.5 yards per game) and second-to-last in rushing offense (74.8 YPG). Still, Miami is just a half a game back of the Bills, Jets and Patriots, all of whom are 3-2. 

The Falcons are coming off the bye week and could see the return star receiver Julio Jones, who was injured during Week 4's 23-17 loss to the Bills. Julio Jones was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, but there is a chance he suits up on Sunday. Edge rusher Vic Beasley was also a limited participant, but he's not expected to play. 

The Falcons (3-1) are still one of the favorites to come out of the NFC, but a resurgent Panthers (4-1) team looks ready to challenge Atlanta for the NFC South crown.
