Week 2: at Miami Dolphins

All WR vs MIA

FBG says: Great matchup. The Patriots did whatever they wanted last week through the air against the Steelers as they threw for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns in a game in which was out of hand by halftime. Tom Brady at age 42 is showing no signs of slowing down as the team was able to show that even without Rob Gronkowski the team was able to move the ball with a combination of their wide receivers in Phillip Dorsett, Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, and their running backs in James White and Rex Burkhead. One interesting thing to note here is that Sony Michel who all offseason we heard was improving as a pass receiver did not see a target this week. For how efficient the team was last week, they might be even more so going forward as they acquired Antonio Brown from the Raiders and while pending rape charges came out on Tuesday night, keep an eye on if the NFL reacts to those reports. Adding Brown to an already deep receiving group is going to give defensive coordinators headaches throughout the season and is in contention to be a historic wide receiving core with Brown, Gordon, and Edelman. The Dolphins secondary might have put on one of the worst performances we have seen in quite some time last week against the Ravens as Lamar Jackson completed 85% of his passes for 324 yards and 5 touchdowns. Wide receivers were frequently wide open for a high school quarterback let alone an NFL quarterback, and the Dolphins seemingly had no answer at either safety or corner to slow down the Ravens. With reports coming out of Miami that several players requested trades, it remains to be seen how motivated this group is for this season. There still is talent in this group with Xavien Howard and Minkah Fitzpatrick at corner, but with little to no pass rush, and with the safeties being a mess in Eric Rowe and Bobby McCain. McCain who is moving from slot corner to free safety looked as if he has a ways to go to complete this transition. Expect the Patriots to move the ball just about however they want against this Dolphins team that is lacking in talent and potentially motivation heading into this game.
