The Miami Dolphins will kick off their 2020 season on Sunday with the hopes of avoiding the same slow start that plagued the team’s 2019 campaign. A divisional win is the best kind of win — it gives you a firm lead on a competitor that could end up standing between you and the postseason. Miami will have their work cut out for them looking to gather that first win against the Patriots. But what will Sunday’s game look like? We have five bold predictions for the Dolphins versus the Patriots.
CB Byron Jones logs an interception
The Miami Dolphins gave Jones a big contract this offseason and for a short while Jones was the NFL’s highest paid cornerback. That ship has sailed thanks to big extensions for Darius Slay, Tre’Davious White and Jalen Ramsey already this summer. But Jones will still need to prove his worth to Miami as a big-money addition and his lack of interceptions in Dallas was a hot-button issue. Our prediction? Jones comes up big in Week 1 with a forced turnover to help prove his standing as a great offseason addition for the Dolphins. It may come courtesy of a lack of chemistry between Cam Newton and his new receivers, but all turnovers count the same.
