Controversy has already taken over Washington as the Redskins welcome in the Miami Dolphins for their home opener in Week 1.
The Redskins drama filled last couple weeks resulted in QB Robert Griffin getting the back up nod to QB Kirk Cousins.
The Dolphins are one of the most improved teams in the NFL after signing Ndamukong Suh in the offseason to a big contract, luring him away from the Lions.
With the controversy all around the Redskins, bettors have jumped all over the Dolphins making them one of the biggest public plays in Week 1.
The Dolphins went out in the offseason and made a giant splash that showed their ready to compete now.
Miami signed Ndamukong Suh to a 6 year, 114 million dollar contract solidifying an already good offensive line.
However, nothing will be just given to Miami as they haven’t had a winning season since 2008. QB Ryan Tannehill has continued to show major progress by the years and will be the play caller once again.
In 2014 Tannehill threw for 4045 yards and 27 touchdowns. If that wasn’t impressive enough, he only threw 12 interceptions. Tannehill has progressed into a solid NFL QB and if he can turn in those same numbers in 2015, the Dolphins could be on their way to a winning season.
Defensively, with Suh getting all the attention, expect Cameron Wake to play a big role in the Dolphins system. Wake had 11.5 sacks in 2014 and with Suh likely being targeted, Wake should find himself in the backfield a lot.
Not many words can describe all the drama that has unfolded in Washington already.
It started with Robert Griffin III going down with a concussion. Then, Kirk Cousins continued his impressive preseason play which started to raise some eyebrows.
Eventually, Cousins was given the starting role, to the surprise of many, and rumors started to fly. From trade rumors to locker room issues, nobody is quite sure what the Redskins will be like.
Cousins passed for 1710 yards in 2014 to go along with 10 touchdowns. Cousins will have a solid core to pass to with DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Jordan Reed.
Pierre Garcon had a bit of down year in 2014, but that had to do with a lot of the inconsistencies the Redskins offense had. Still, he averaged 20.9 yards per reception last year.
RB Alfred Morris will be back as well after rushing for 1074 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2014.
