The New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins kick off their seasons Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, and the AFC East matchup will include two former Alabama standouts behind center.
While the pressure is on for Dolphins second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who threw 11 passing touchdowns and five interceptions during his rookie season, first-round draft pick Mac Jones will be making his regular-season debut for the Patriots. The quarterback is getting the start following Cam Newton’s release at the conclusion of training camp.
It’s a big first game for two teams with playoff aspirations. The Dolphins narrowly missed the playoffs last season after going 10-6. The Patriots went 7-9 last year, missing the playoffs for the first time since the 2008 campaign and suffering a losing season for the first time since 2000.
