On the eve of their game against the Miami Dolphins, it’s now clear that the New England Patriots are going to have to be rather creative with their lineup. Depleted by injuries, the Pats are going to find it tough to do better than their Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Patriots are hurting

There is no way to shy away from the fact that the New England Patriots have seen their starting lineup absolutely destroyed by injuries following their 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Indeed, as of Friday, several of the team’s starters were officially listed as questionable on the injury report.

Firstly, there is left tackle Trent Brown who recovering from a concussion and he’s not the only one. There’s also right tackle Sidy Sow who’s struggling with the same scenario and did not participate during Friday’s practice. After that, we’ve got left guard Cole Strange (knee) and right guard Mike Onwenu (ankle), who were also limited participants. If there is a positive, it’s that starting center David Andrews was on the injury report earlier in the week, however, he was not listed on Friday’s.

The Dolphins are more or less good to go

Unlike their opponents in Week 2, the Dolphins are actually doing just fine - more or less. Yes, it’s true that the team still lacks a top tier pass rushing element, but on the other hand, if we consider the Patriots’ lack of depth, it appears to be a situation that Miami can manage. Truth be told, the Dolphins have already shown that they are worth the hype. Between their quality quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, and the likes of Tyreek Hill out wide, it would be quite reasonable to assume that the Pats despite the prowess of QB Mac Jones, will be overwhelmed. With that said, the Dolphins do have one major injury concern and that’s left tackle Terron Armstead, who continues to recover from a multitude of injuries (knee, ankle, and back).

The Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots will kick off their contest on Sunday at 8:20 p.m. ET.
