The Miami Dolphins will not play their first game of the 2017 season until week two when they travel to Los Angeles. The NFL announced that this weekends game between the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be rescheduled.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-MIAMI DOLPHINS GAME TO BE PLAYED IN WEEK 11 ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19
Due to the potential impact of Hurricane Irma on South Florida, the Miami Dolphins home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET at Hard Rock Stadium, will instead be played there in Week 11 on Sunday, November 19, the NFL announced today.
Week 11 was previously an open date for both clubs.
The NFL announced yesterday that in the interest of public safety in light of the continuing state of emergency, the league, in consultation with state and local officials as well as both clubs, would not play an NFL game in South Florida this week.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the impacted area.
Miami will now play what essentially will be three road games to open the season. Los Angeles and then a trip to New York followed by their “home” game in London. They will return to Miami to face the Titans in early October.
