Monday Night Football: Patriots Vs. Dolphins

The New England Patriots open the 2011 NFL season on the road against the Miami Dolphins for the first Monday Night Football game on the schedule.

This is actually the first of two games tonight as the league has created the tradition of having two Monday Night Football games in Week 1. The second will be the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos.

The Patriots enter the season following a 14-2 2010 season that was terrific from start to finish....well, not really finish as they lost in their first playoff game last year. 

The Dolphins enter the season firmly entrenched behind both the Patriots and New York Jets in the AFC East so they're hoping to surprise in 2011.

I gotta take the Patriots tonight, probably by a large margin. I know it's the easy analysis but with QB Tom Brady this is one of the best teams in football. They'll take this game 31-10.

Who ya got tonight?
