After a shocking last-second loss to the Miami Dolphins less than a year ago, the Pats are looking for revenge this Sunday. The New England Patriots do not far well in Miami as in there last 6 meetings, they are 1-5. Tom Brady is well aware of the struggles against the Dolphins and wants to change the narrative and start this season strong, unlike last year. Last season through 4 games, they were 2-2 and many people started doubting them. Well, that didn’t last long as the Patriots ended up proving everyone wrong and winning a championship. After a strong start last week on Sunday night football, the Pats are very excited for this weeks matchup.
Let’s get to know the Miami Dolphins and what to expect during this week 2 matchup!
After a blowup 59-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, many Dolphins players were calling their agents saying “we want out of this place”. Miami QB, Ryan Fitzpatrick had a QBR of 37.3, which was the lowest rate for a QB during week 1. Fitzpatrick was named the starter again this week as there coach, Brian Flores have alot of confidence in him. Coming into 2019, many though Maimi defense was going be there backbone to stay in games. Well as we saw in Week 1, it was their downfall. One thing that is on Miami site this Sunday will be the weather. It is expected to get into the low 90s and that potentially could slow down the Patriots high powered attack.
The betting line doesn’t matter in this game. New England shouldn’t be paying attention to the numbers and how much they are going to beat the Dolphins by. Everyone knows Miami hasn’t been too kind to them on the road in the past 10 years. This is probably the best opportunity for the Pats to go to Miami in the last 10 years and beat them.
