Miami @ New England

Last Season Records: New England 7-9; Miami 10-6

What to Know

The New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins will face off at 4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at Gillette Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. New England struggled last year, ending up 7-9. Meanwhile, Miami was not at the top of the league last season, but they wrapped up the year with a winning record of 10-6.

A couple last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Patriots snagged 18 interceptions last season, the most in the league. Miami was completely their equal: they collected 18 interceptions, too.

New England has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
