NFL: Patriots vs Dolphins Preview


patriots vs dolphinsThe New England Patriots are set to travel to Miami on Sunday where they will kick off their NFL regular season in an opening week matchup with the Dolphins in a game that both teams look to win.

The Patriots are coming into Sunday after a 2013 campaign in which they, once again made a trip to the NFL postseason. The Patriots are set to take on Miami in the opening week in what will be their first matchup within the AFC East, a division that the Patriots are favored to win. Other competition within the AFC East includes the New York Jets, as well as the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots have been the dominant team in the division for the last decade plus, and that pattern is set to continue this year, as Tom Brady, once again, looks to lead his team to the playoffs.

The Miami Dolphins are coming into this season looking to build upon the improvement that they displayed last year, and potentially become challengers to the Patriots when is comes to winning the division, and at the bare minimum, compete for a wild card spot. In order for the Dolphins to have that kind of success, the offense will have to continue the upward trend it enjoyed last year. The Dolphins are also hoping to see a noticeable improvement on defense, especially if they hope to stop teams like the Patriots from driving the ball all over them.

The line for this contest between the Patriots and the Dolphins has the Patriots at -5, with the over/under set at 47.

The Patriots will take this one from the Dolphins on the road and begin the season with a win as they look to begin the drive into the playoffs once again. The Patriots win 35-14.
