Football is back! Well, sort of. Yeah, it's the preseason, and yeah, it's the Hall of Fame Game (which generally features very little playing time for the starters), but some semblance of actual NFL football will be played tonight.
While the game normally wouldn't hold much interest for Patriots fans, it will feature the first game action for New England's division rivals, the Miami Dolphins. Many prognosticators see the Dolphins as the AFC East's second best team, and a team that could push the Patriots for that title of AFC East Champs. We might not see a lot of Miami's new additions, but it will be our first chance to do a little advance scouting on them.
