Dolphins Schedule Released!

Today at 7pm eastern time, all of the teams schedules throughout the league were released.

It was no different for the Dolphins, as their always challenging schedule came out on the teams website tonight.

Here is what it looks like in its entirety:

WK DATE OPPONENT TIME TICKETS NETWORK
R1 Sept. 12 at Buffalo 1:00 PM CBS
R2 Sept. 19 at Minnesota 1:00 PM CBS
R3 Sept. 26 N.Y. JETS 8:20 PM NBC
R4 Oct. 4 NEW ENGLAND 8:30 PM ESPN
R5 Oct. 10 Bye Weekend
R6 Oct. 17 at Green Bay 1:00 PM CBS
R7 Oct. 24 PITTSBURGH 1:00 PM CBS
R8 Oct. 31 at Cincinnati 1:00 PM CBS
R9 Nov. 7 at Baltimore 1:00 PM CBS
R10 Nov. 14 TENNESSEE 1:00 PM CBS
R11 Nov. 18 CHICAGO 8:20 PM NFLN
R12 Nov. 28 at Oakland 4:05 PM CBS
R13 Dec. 5 CLEVELAND 1:00 PM CBS
R14 Dec. 12 at N.Y. Jets 4:15 PM CBS
R15 Dec. 19 BUFFALO 1:00 PM CBS
R16 Dec. 26 DETROIT 1:00 PM FOX
R17 Jan. 2 at New England 1:00 PM CBS

The schedule looks to be pretty rough in spots, but has the potential to be a cakewalk at stretches.

The first four weeks before the BYE will be crucial once again. The Fins begin their season in Buffalo, then take a journey to Minnesota to take on perhaps Brett Favre and his Vikings in Week 2.

Then the schedule gets interesting. In the two weeks before the BYE, the Dolphins have two divisional games, both in primetime. First, the Dolphins will come home, and play their first home game of the season against the New York Jets, and their newly signed traitor linebacker, Jason Taylor, on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

The Dolphins then stay at home for the first Monday Night Football game of the season, against the rival New England Patriots. I could easily see one of these two games being the game where the Dolphins break out their famous “orange jerseys”.

The Dolphins then have one more primetime game on their schedule, on November 18th, against the Chicago Bears, in Week 11. All of the Fins primetime games are home games.

To wrap up the season, the Dolphins end it by playing 3 rivals in the last four weeks, highlighted by the Week 17 “Divisional Week” that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has put in place. The Dolphins will play the Patriots during Divisional Week, and this could very well be the battle for the division. I would expect this game to possibly be flexed into primetime depending on how the teams fare during the season.

Every game for the Dolphins is key, but based on the schedule right now, I predict that the Dolphins will finish 11-5, and in the playoffs after regaining the AFC East crown.

The Fins will have to get out to a fast start, because while they do play some easy teams in the middle of the schedule, they play enough tough teams to realize, that if the Dolphins have a skid of consecutive losses at all during the season, they may have dug their grave.

The fact that the Dolphins have added some big playmakers to both their offense and defense can always keep a team in the game, but it also brightens the chances of getting wins for the team, that you didn’t think could happen. Games like these will be against the Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, and Green Bay Packers.

I see those three games as being the key to the season, as well as finishing first in their division.

The schedule has shaped out to be an exciting one, and it was worth the wait to finally see it. With three primetime games this year, all at home, the excitement among the Dol-Fans will be at an all new high!

This is just the beginning to what should be a great season for the Miami Dolphins!
