Mac Jones leads the Patriots to a second season as a starting quarterback as Bill Belichick looks to rebuild his team as a contender. He’ll be looking to get the Patriots back in the playoffs, but faces a revitalized Dolphins team. Tua Tagovailoa returns as a quarterback in Miami with a new head coach in Mike McDaniel and a new top receiver in Tyreek Hill. Getting to Miami has always been an adventure for the Patriots. However, they sought to mitigate that this week by flying on Tuesday and training in Florida all week.

PATRIOTS PLAYER TO WATCH: QB Mac Jones is in the spotlight as he enters the second year after a 2021 Pro Bowl season in which his 22 touchdowns and 3,801 passing yards led all rookie quarterbacks. He will likely be called upon to stretch the field further after the Patriots add WR DeVante Parker.

DOLPHINS PLAYER TO WATCH: WR Tyreek Hill. The biggest move in an offseason filled with big moves by the Dolphins was the landing of Hill, perhaps the fastest wide receiver in the NFL and someone who could make the life of QB Tua Tagovailoa and his fellow WR Jaylen Waddle much easier.

KEY MATCHUP: Parker vs. Dolphins secondary. Parker will be eager to face his old team, and he knows how good Miami’s defensive backfield led by CB Xavien Howard and S Jevon Holland is.

KEY INJURIES: The bigger question is whether Waddle, who has been slowed down for a few weeks with a quad issue, gets the green light to play Week 1.

SERIES NOTES: Miami is looking for a fourth straight series win, something the Dolphins haven’t done since dominating New England five straight between 1999 and 2001. … Miami has a record of 3-1 when hosting the Patriots in Week 1 games. … The teams are 5-5 head-to-head in the season opener.

STATS AND OTHERS: The Patriots are trying to earn their 100th Belichick-era AFC East win (99-37). … Miami is looking for a seventh straight home win, which would match the team’s longest such streak since going 7-0 between Dec. 2, 2001 and Oct. 6, 2002. The previous time, Miami had one more than that was a 10-game streak covering parts of the 1984-1986 seasons. … Patriots special team Matt Slater is entering his 15th season in the NFL. He joins Tom Brady (20), Steve Grogan (16), Troy Brown (15) and Julius Adams (15) as the only New England players to have played at least 15 seasons with the team. … Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel is offering to be the fifth coach to lead Miami to the playoffs in his first year with the franchise, joining Don Shula, Dave Wannstedt, Tony Sparano and Adam Gase. … Patriots K Nick Folk had 55 straight field goal attempts inside 50 yards, the second-longest rush in NFL history behind 56 straight by Ryan Succop from 2014-17 while with Tennessee . Folk’s most recent miss inside the 50-yard line was a 45-yard field goal attempt in the 2020 season opener against Miami.

FANTASY TIP: Telling fantasy owners to “play Tyreek Hill” isn’t much of a tip, but it’s a safe bet the Dolphins will have Tua Tagovailoa targeting their highest-paid receiver early and often. And if nothing else, history says Patriots QB Mac Jones could have a big day; the only Week 1 400-yard passing performances in Patriots history were posted by Tom Brady (517 in 2011) and Drew Bledsoe (421 in 1994), and both were against Miami.
