It took a while before the Miami Dolphins got their act together in Week 1.
But when they finally clicked, it was delightful to watch.
Tua Tagovailoa finished their victory over the Los Angeles Chargers with 466 passing yards and three touchdowns.
Tyreek Hill benefitted the most from Tagovailoa’s big day, collecting 215 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
However, they have 16 regular season games left, and each week possesses a different challenge.
Standing in their way to a 2-0 start are their division rivals, the New England Patriots.
But after what he’s seen on opening weekend, FS1’s Craig Carton believes that the Dolphins will beat the Patriots because they are the better team.
“Miami’s a better team, they should beat New England,” Carton said.

Without question, Bill Belichick has dissected Tagovailoa’s Week 1 performance.
Likewise, the Patriots will look to establish their running game with Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott to shorten the game for the Dolphins.
However, no one can match Tyreek Hill’s speed, and one big play between him and Tagovailoa could change the game.
Miami leads their all-time series against New England, 60-55.
Conversely, the Patriots won their last meeting in Week 17 of 2022.
But it’s a different season, making it anybody’s ball game.
