After losing to Pittsburgh the last time they met, the Patriots decided to demonstrate that turnabout is fair play. New England made easy work of Pittsburgh last Sunday and carried off a 33-3 win. QB Tom Brady earned his paycheck as he passed for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns. Brady ended up with a passer rating of 124.90.
Miami couldn’t capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. They took a serious blow against Baltimore, falling 10-59. The result was an unpleasant reminder to the Dolphins of the 40 to nothing defeat they experienced in the two teams’ previous head-to-head Oct. 26 of 2017.
New England’s victory lifted them to 1-0 while Miami’s loss dropped them down to 0-1.

Less enviably, the Dolphins were second worst when it came to rushing yards allowed per game last year, with the squad gave up 145.3 on average. So, the Miami squad has its work cut out for it.
