If there was something to take from last night’s New England Patriots 38-24 victory over the Miami Dolphins, it’s that Patriots QB Tom Brady will be throwing a lot of touchdowns this season.
Brady threw for a team-record 517 yards and four touchdowns, including a 99-yarder to Wes Welker. The Patriots no-huddle offense confused and wore out the Dolphins defense all night.
New England totaled 622 yards, the most in franchise history and the most allowed by Miami. Make no mistake, the Patriots are on a mission this season. The New York Jets need to figure out a way to stop them.
On the other side of the ball, the Dolphins displayed their faith in QB Chad Henne, who would throw for a career high 416 yards himself, including 139 yards to Brandon Marshall.
The AFC East had seemed to abandon the defense and gone to the air.
The Jets better be ready.
