1. MIAMI DOLPHINS (+6.5) vs. New England Patriots
Jimmy Garoppolo is not Tom Brady. Even after the Patriots miraculously went on the road and beat a strong Arizona Cardinals team as 9-point underdogs, there’s no reason this injury-riddled bunch should be a 6.5-point favorite. Without Brady and Rob Ninkovich, and possibly Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots will have their hands full with this Dolphins team. Miami almost pulled off an enormous upset in Seattle last week, thanks to the defensive line finally living up to its hype. Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake will make life miserable for Garoppolo and New England’s suspect offensive line, and Tannehill will make enough plays to keep Miami in this one.
Prediction: 23-20 Patriots
