One week in, the AFC East has a decidedly different look than usual.
It’s been a long wait, but the beginning of the NFL season has finally arrived.
Nearly a decade has passed since the New England Patriots last held the Lombardi Trophy, and with Tom Brady closer to 40 years old than 30, it’s unclear how big of a window the franchise has remaining to win another title during his tenure.
Less than a week away from the Week 1 matchup between Miami and New England, the Patriots have already issued a warning strike.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upgraded their struggling offensive line, trading for six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins instead of offering a contract to free agent Richie Incognito.
The New England Patriots still have some injury concerns, but a first-round playoff bye is allowing the team to do some healing.
This year’s AFC all-pro offense includes Brady and Manning, two of the best quarterbacks ever. See who else made the team.
Should they or shouldn’t they? New England tight end Rob Gronkowski could be cleared to play in this weekend’s contest versus Miami, but the Patriots aren’t sure if they should let him play or wait and activate him in the postseason. Waiting could avoid re-aggravating the surgically repaired forearm which he fractured in Week 11.
A new week has begun, but the NFL lockout continued as Monday became day 124 of the NFL’s work stoppage. But, for Dolphins fans and NFL fans in general, there seems to be real momentum to getting a deal done this week.
