Patriots vs. Dolphins

The Dolphins have improved in the AFC East under head coach Joe Philbin so they will be able to give the Patriots a tough challenge in this game.  But even with their new offense being unveiled I don’t think the Dolphins can defeat the Patriots.  They still have the better quarterback in Tom Brady and with Darrelle Revis at corner their defense should be improved.

Winner:  Patriots

Score prediction:       28-23  Patriots   

Points spread:      Patriots -5

Over/under:  47.5  Over
