Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City): The 24-year-old Mahomes, entering his fourth season, now has a Super Bowl under his belt. Mahomes will face the Dolphins in the same building in which he secured his first career Lombardi Trophy this past February.
Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills): For the third consecutive season, the Dolphins will get a taste of Allen two times during the regular season. The Bills added Stefon Diggs during the free agency period, giving Allen a speedy weapon on the offensive side of the football.
Sam Darnold (New York Jets): Like Allen, the Dolphins and Darnold will meet twice during the regular season. In four attempts against Miami, Darnold is 1-3.
Kyler Murray (Arizona Cardinals): Murray, the number one overall selection in 2019, will get a chance to square up against the Dolphins for the first time in his young career.
Jimmy Garoppolo (San Francisco 49ers): The Dolphins will see both quarterbacks from Super Bowl LIV in 2020. Garoppolo, who was acquired from the New England Patriots in 2017, led the 49ers to an impressive 8-0 start in 2019.
Drew Lock (Denver Broncos): Denver releasing Joe Flacco during the free agency period now opens the door for Lock as the full-time starter for John Elway’s group. The last Denver quarterback that squared up against the Dolphins? Trevor Siemian in 2017.
Gardner Minshew (Jacksonville Jaguars): The Dolphins will get their first crack at the former Washington State product, after Jacksonville elected to move on from Nick Foles, dealing the 2018 Super Bowl champion to Matt Nagy’s Chicago Bears. Minshew will be the third second-year quarterback the Dolphins see in 2020.
TBD (New England Patriots): Tom Brady has been the starter for Bill Belichick’s bunch since 2001, capturing six Super Bowl rings, but with Brady moving on to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there will be a new man under center in Foxborough.
TBD (Los Angeles Chargers): Philip Rivers found a new home, signing a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, after spending his first 16 seasons with San Diego/Los Angeles. Currently, the Chargers have two quarterbacks on the active roster: Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick.
Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams): The Dolphins saw Goff during his rookie season in 2016, in which Miami completed a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback. Goff recently signed a four-year, $134 million contract.
Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks): The Dolphins will have their hands full when Wilson makes his appearance at Hard Rock Stadium in 2020. Since making his professional debut in 2012, Wilson has failed to qualify for the postseason one time (2017).
TBD (Cincinnati Bengals): Cincinnati holds the first overall selection in April’s draft and in all likelihood, unless a team trades up, the Bengals will take Joe Burrow, who captured off a record season at LSU with a National Championship victory against Trevor Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers.
Derek Carr (Las Vegas Raiders): Despite the Raiders moving the franchise from Oakland to Las Vegas and bringing in Marcus Mariota from Tennessee, Carr is expected to be Vegas’ man under center in 2020. Carr has composed a total record of 1-2 in three meetings against the Dolphins, throwing for three touchdowns and four interceptions.
