If there is one team that Dolphins fans love to hate, it's the New England Patriots.
What better way to open the 2011 season than with a Monday Night Football matchup featuring the Patriots and the Dolphins in Miami?
Sun Life Stadium is electric on Monday nights and the electricity will be even greater for a season opener.
The MNF matchup with the Pats last season did not go well for the Dolphins (I was there, unfortunately). However, this year, the Dolphins will get a chance at revenge right off the bat.
The teams will meet again in New England, week 16, in a Christmas Eve game.
The Dolphins' lack of success in cold weather is no secret and their toughness will be put to the test once again.
I love watching snow football, just not snow football with my Dolphins involved.
All-time, the Dolphins hold the head-to-head advantage at 50-41.
