The 2019 season did not start well for the Miami Dolphins, who were dismantled by the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. Now, the Dolphins look to right themselves against their AFC East rivals and defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots. Drama has started in Miami after just one week. Will it carry over to the field against the Patriots?
Miami is planning to start quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick again, hoping the offensive line will be able to slow New England’s pass rush to at least allow the quarterback a chance to complete his drop before he is running for his life. On defense, the Dolphins coaching staff has preached “positionless” football this year, where players can lineup anywhere and have any assignment - but it now appears to have led to 2018 first-round pick Minkah Fitzpatrick wanting a trade. The year is just starting, but it could get ugly fast if the Dolphins do not show up against the Patriots.
The good news is, the Dolphins will be rocking their white throwbacks this week.
