Game Preview


In Week 2 of the 2023 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins will visit the New England Patriots. Sunday night, the game will begin at Gillette Stadium. In Week 1, the Patriots lost a close game to the Eagles, while the Dolphins defeated the Chargers.


The Dolphins beat the Chargers 36-34 on the road on Sunday, covering the spread as 3-point favorites and cashing the Over (50.5). In the final two minutes of the game, Miami trailed before quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyreek Hill.


The Dolphins started the season off with a crucial victory over the Chargers in Los Angeles. In the victory, Tua Tagovailoa threw for 466 yards, 3 TDs, and 1 INT. To kick off the season, Tyreek Hill had 215 receiving yards and Jaylen Waddle contributed 78.


The Dolphins’ Tua and Tyreek combination will be extremely difficult to contain. Despite Miami’s weak defense, the Patriots simply don’t have the offensive firepower to stay up with the Dolphins.



The Patriots’ season opener was a loss against the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 25-20. As a 3.5-point underdog, New England was unable to cover the spread, and the total score went Over (43.5).


The Eagles scored 16 points in the first quarter thanks to a pick-6 and a fumble recovery that led to a touchdown, but the Patriots clawed their way back into the game. Late in the fourth quarter, New England had two chances to take the lead but blew both by fumbling the ball away on downs.


In his first game working with new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien, quarterback Mac Jones completed 35 of 54 passes for 316 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Both wide receiver Kendrick Bourne and running back Rhamondre Stevenson tallied 64 receiving yards, with Bourne scoring twice.
