“It's easy to forget the Dolphins won six of the nine games Tua Tagovailoa started last year, including a 22-12 win over the Patriots in Week 15. I believe both rosters are considerably stronger than they were back then. Miami's offense should be more explosive, and Tua looks more comfortable. New England's defense is set to rebound, and Mac Jones can balance the team's offense. The Patriots get the Week 1 nod because they’re at home and they are more likely to protect their young quarterback. ”...

“The Dolphins' defense led the league in turnovers forced last season and will rudely welcome Jones to the NFL this year, holding him under 220 passing yards with a pair of interceptions. On the other side of the ball, rookie receiver Jaylen Waddle will record 75 total yards and his first career touchdown”...

“Everyone knows the Tua Tagovailoa vs. Mac Jones storyline, but we shouldn't overlook the key factors that could lead to each of their success. Dolphins starting left tackle Austin Jackson spent the week on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which means he might not play. That could create a decisive matchup advantage for Patriots outside linebackers Matt Judon and Kyle Van Noy, two of the team's best defenders. Judon and other members of the Patriots' D have remarked how they want to lighten the load for Jones by doing their part. "Mac has a lot on his plate right now," Judon said.”...
