ATLANTA — No. 2 Alabama’s revenge tour began in a familiar place — Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the SEC Championship Game and the site of the Crimson Tide’s walk-off touchdown in overtime of the CFP National Championship two seasons ago. But Alabama’s performance was anything but familiar as it started slow vs. Duke in a scoreless first quarter Saturday.The Tide will be led by Heisman Trophy finalist Tua Tagovailoa under center and one of the best wide receiving corps in the country. But they were playing without their top two running backs — Najee Harris and Brian Robinson, who were suspended in the first quarter. Middle linebacker Dylan Moses suffered a season-ending knee injury earlier this week. Fellow middle linebacker Joshua McMillon is out for the year as well, leaving the Tide defense perilously thin.Duke lost star quarterback Daniel Jones to the draft, and dual-threat weapon Quinten Harris is expected to take over. With him comes a drastically different offense that what Jones brought with his NFL arm. Coach David Cutcliffe has made a living developing quarterbacks, and his new one will get quite a challenge in the opener.
