Garoppolo, Patriots await Dolphins in home opener (The Associated Press)

The four-game Jimmy Garoppolo Era moves to the home stage when the New England Patriots host the Miami Dolphins in an AFC game on Sunday. Garoppolo, who made his first NFL start in the first game of Tom Brady’s Deflategate absence last Sunday night at Arizona, opened eyes all around the league play in leading the Patriots to their narrow opening win over the Cardinals. “It was a great night for him and for our whole offense,” Brady told Westwood One Radio on his weekly Monday Night Football interview.
