10 Super Bowl matchups we want to see in the 2022 NFL season
10. Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Just before the preseason began, the league announced sanctions against the Miami Dolphins for tampering allegations. Among other things, the findings concluded they tried to bring Tom Brady to South Beach but spoke with him while he was still under contract with the New England Patriots — and then did so again in 2021.
Miami lost a first-round pick in 2023 and a third-round pick in 2024. Majority owner Stephen Ross is also banned until Oct. 17, was fined $1.5 million, and can no longer serve on committees.
On top of all this, they have to deal with the fact that Tua Tagovailoa once again has people questioning the team’s commitment to him. The good news for him is that he has the tools in front of him to succeed with Jaylen Waddle, Tyreek Hill, and Cedrick Wilson in a loaded offense.
If he can put it all together, he can silence all the doubters. And what better way for him to do so than to knock off an in-state rival, who happens to feature Brady under center? The storylines for this one would write themselves.
