The original prediction for this game had this ending in a close victory for the Dolphins. Based on personnel moves, preseason, and joint practice reports, the bold prediction for this game isn’t focused on one player or position group.

The New England Patriots get blown out by the Dolphins and don’t score more than one touchdown.

The Patriots’ off-season moves ranging from the draft to play-calling assignments (Matt Patricia as OC) have many doubting the team’s success in 2022. Reports have also said that quarterback Mac Jones has shown signs of regression. On the flip side, the Dolphins have amassed a substantial amount of offensive weapons on top of a solid defensive unit. The Patriots are going to feel the sting of this loss.

NFL Week 1 bold predictions for Baltimore Ravens vs. New York Jets

. Sunday, Sept. 11. 0. . 30. 1:00 PM ET. 0. 26

The prediction for this game has certainly changed as Baltimore’s favorite son, or former son, Joe Flacco, will be the starting quarterback for the Jets. Lamar Jackson will face off against his former mentor and while it is exciting this is not “2013” Joe Flacco.

This game will still be a victory for Baltimore however the bold prediction is worth noting.

Joe Flacco makes it a close game.

The Jets will actively compete with the Ravens in the air and Flacco is a huge contributor throwing minimal incompletions and zero interceptions.
