Inside The Numbers

The victory against the Atlanta Falcons marked the 104th time in Dolphins history they won a game after trailing at halftime.

It was the second time this season, after the Dolphins accomplish the feat in their opener against the Los Angeles Chargers when they overcame a 10-3 halftime deficit to win 19-17.

The Dolphins are one of two teams in the NFL to overcome a halftime deficit of 10 points or more to win a game this season. Green Bay beat Cincinnati in Week 3 after trailing 21-7 at the half.

The record for biggest scoring margin in the second half of a victory after they trailed at halftime is 28, which happened in 1984 when the Dolphins beat the Colts 35-17 after trailing 17-7 at halftime.

The Falcons also had four possessions in the second half and went three-and-out on two of them. Atlanta did not move the ball inside the Dolphins 40-yard line until its final drive.

As Dolphins fans know, safety Reshad Jones clinched the victory with a last-minute interception, but some might not remember he did something similar two years ago. In a 20-19 victory at Philadelphia, Jones intercepted Mark Sanchez in the end zone with 4:32 remaining to preserve the Dolphins' lead. Jones later tackled Jordan Matthews short of the first down on a fourth-and-10 with 53 seconds left to clinch the victory.

Kenny Stills was one of the offensive stars in the second half with three catches for 38 yards. That included his third-quarter touchdown and an 18-yard reception to start that drive.

Three of Jay Ajayi's 18-yard runs against the Falcons came in the second half.
