Tim Graham, who covers the AFC East for ESPN.com, writes on one of the weaknesses of the Dolphins' defense -- covering opposing tight ends.

Could this mean a big night for Patriots rookies Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez?

Graham explores the topic, including comments from quarterback Tom Brady and Dolphins coach Tony Sparano.

"It's difficult, no question about it," Sparano said of defending Hernandez and Gronkowski. "I think you can try a lot of ways, but with the Patriots you've got to kind of pick your poison a little bit. You can go out there and maybe try to double one of those guys, but then you could expose yourself with Randy or with Wes or with any of those people. You've got to be a little bit careful."
