A Fresh Perspective - Written by Luis Sung | Twitter: @FLSportDebater
In a stunning turn of events that took the whole NFL by storm, the Miami Dolphins soundly defeated the team that so many people predicted to be one of the best teams in the NFL and also possibly win the Super Bowl: The New England Patriots.
In fact, it got to the point where the national media unanimously chose New England not only to simply defeat Miami in week one, but to completely dominate them.
With that illustration effectively showing exactly how members of the national media felt about this game, I can understand why they did it. They're used to New England being a perennial playoff team and they have Tom Brady - an elite quarterback who has dominated teams he's faced over the past decade. They have Bill Belichick, who is known league-wide as a candidate for the title of the best coach in the NFL and regarded by fans as an evil genius. Of course the media would say New England had the advantage.
