The Miami Dolphins get their 2014/15 NFL season started on Sunday afternoon, with the New England Patriots visiting the Sun Life Stadium.
New England are coming off the back of their 11th AFC East title in 14 seasons under Coach Bill Belichick, while they have also gone on to reach the Conference title game for three straight years.
However, time is running out for quarterback Tom Brady to lift the Lombardi Trophy again after falling short once more last season, but he will have a huge helping hand this season in the offensive unit.
It is understood that the veteran signal caller will have all his top receivers back with Rob Gronkowski even potentially returning from a long injury lay-off to slot in at tight end.
Nevertheless, despite announcing that he was ready for the opening game of the season despite missing the entire pre-season schedule, the acquisition of Tim Wright from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could see Gronkowski fighting for his spot on the starting roster.
Meanwhile, there are still concerns over the protection that Brady will receive having been sacked 40 times last year, and opposite number Ryan Tannehill will be all too familiar with the feeling after enduring a league-high 58 sacks last season.
After a disappointing 8-8 year, the Dolphins moved to address their weaknesses and will hope that it has an immediate impact, and with a trip to London later this month which could interrupt their early-season momentum, they will want to get off to a winning start especially on home turf.
New England had won seven consecutive meetings between the two prior to the 24-20 road loss back in December last year, and so it remains to be seen whether or not they can secure Belichick’s 200th career regular-season victory on Sunday.
