Now that we know what the 2014 schedule looks like, I think it is time for some way too early season predictions for the Patriots.

Week 1- at Miami, 1 p.m.

Win (24-13)

The Pats won’t roll over Miami, as they are building a solid team down there, but the Dolphins don’t yet have the firepower to out-gun Tom Brady and company. The new and improved New England secondary will stifle Ryan Tannehill’s aerial attack, and the Pats will earn an opening victory.
