Week 1 Preview: Patriots at Cardinals (The Associated Press)

Jimmy Garoppolo has spent the bulk of the past two-plus years learning in the classroom and on the practice field. The third-year quarterback will make his first career NFL start when the New England Patriots take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night — under the lights in prime time for an 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff at University of Phoenix Stadium. Garoppolo, 24, has thrown 31 regular-season passes since being selected in the second round out of Eastern Illinois in 2014, and none of them has come against a hungry, aggressive defense in a Week 1 showdown of two teams expected to be in the thick of the playoff hunt.
