CBS will be broadcasting Sunday’s NFL game between Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The Dolphins hope QB Tua Tagovailoa can take a big step forward this season with a loaded supporting cast and a strong offensive line. WR Jaylen Waddle looks to break out in his rookie season and speedster Will Fuller attempts to unlock Tagovailoa’s ability to throw the deep ball well. Miami is entering a big year under head coach Brian Flores and should compete for a playoff spot if Tagovailoa performs well.

The Patriots went 7-9 in their first year without Tom Brady since 2000. Head coach Bill Belichick spent lots of money in free agency to add offensive talent but his biggest move was releasing QB Cam Newton to make way for rookie QB Mac Jones. If Jones clicks, New England’s defense is good enough to contend for a playoff spot. If the rookie struggles, it could be another long season in Foxborough.
