Nothing like a little rivalry action to start the season…I am assuming these teams always meet this time of year.
There is definitely more optimism in Tampa. Miami is not going to overcome New England this season but that is definitely nothing new.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM ET with one interesting factor being the weather. It has been a hot summer and this is the first game so that might impact the rotations a little…more point or less I am not sure.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston has a suspension to start the season but that is not really going to effect this game much. Don’t expect to see him or much of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will likely get those three starts. Ryan Griffin might get a whole lot of playing time.
That’s not terrible for backers.
On defense the Bucs made moves to get stronger up front but those are unlikely to shape the outcome of this contest. .
Every team in the AFC East is looking to close the gap between them and the Patriots. Miami is going the veteran route with the likes of Frank Gore and Danny Amendola.
Brock Osweiler is always going to garner attention and he should see the field in this one. Overall, I don’t like the look of the Dolphins offense.
The Dolphins defense is going to have a different look without Ndomikung Suh in the middle. They don’t look better to me but drafted some players who could make a difference. Just don’t expect to see it yet.
