What an odd picture to look at. The New England Patriots sit at 1-2 while the Dolphins are there at 3-0. The Patriots have been on the struggle bus and could this be the start of the dynasty falling apart? History says no as the Patriots have gotten off to slow starts only for them to win the Super Bowl a few months later. This is a great test for the Dolphins who are riding high right now on a three game win streak. If the Dolphins can go into Foxboro and beat the Patriots, I think it will finally be time for the national media to start paying attention to this team. If they lose, oh well.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
