Week 1 poll: Patriots at Dolphins
Enough preseason talk, speculation and projections. It's time for the real thing.
We have a big Week 1 showdown in the AFC East to start the season. The New England Patriots will travel to Sun Life Stadium to play the Miami Dolphins on "Monday Night Football."
So, which team will begin 1-0 and pick up the first win in the division?
Will it be quarterback Tom Brady and Co.? The Patriots are looking to make up for last season's quick playoff exit at the hands of the New York Jets. New England can start by picking up a division win on the road against Miami.
Or will the upset-minded Dolphins make a big statement? The Dolphins have talent, but can be a difficult team to gauge. Will quarterback Chad Henne, receiver Brandon Marshall and new tailback Reggie Bush score enough points at home to keep up with New England?
