In 17 weeks, the Dolphins open the 2022 NFL regular season vs. the New England Patriots

That’s right, folks!

In less than 17 weeks, on September 11th, 2022, YOUR Miami Dolphins will host the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium. Tickets can be found on the team’s official website, but what this ultimately means to me is three things:

  1. Tua Tagovailoa is still undefeated vs. Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. And, IMO, he will remain undefeated after week one.
  2. While 17 weeks sounds like a long time, it will be here #soon—and I. Can. Not. Wait!
  3. And lastly, I need to post as much Jaylen Waddle propaganda as possible. After all, we are only 17 more weeks away from the start of the season.

So here is the first of what may become a little Sunday tradition over the next few weeks:

17 more weeks... Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots.

(P.S. There is no point to this. )

[Below is a bunch of Jaylen Waddle #content I found on the internet. He wears the #17, so it seems fitting. But before we get into that, let me remind you that Tua Tagovialoa is undefeated vs. the New England Patriots.

Yes, Brian Flores and that defense deserve a ton of credit, but Tagovailoa made critical plays in crucial moments to lift the Dolphins over the Patriots regardless of what that stat sheet says. ]

But football is a team sport, and in the last ten meetings between these two AFC East foes, Miami is 6-4. The Dolphins also lead the all-time series with a record of 59-54. So what does all of that mean? Not a lot when the team hasn’t sniffed the playoffs since 2016 and after back-to-back winning seasons—I don’t want to say they need to make the playoffs, but it sure wouldn’t hurt.

Nevertheless, it’s a new era, and 20-0 seems realistic to me after seeing the schedule. And again, TUA TAGOVAILOA HAS NEVER LOST TO THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. So—for now—enjoy all the Jaylen Waddle #content.

(i didn’t realize that was Jalen Hurts above)
