Miami Dolphins announce 2017 schedule Download PDF version

MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins today announced their 2017 schedule. The team will kick off the 2017 season at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. against Tampa Bay. It is just the second time since 2011 the Dolphins have opened the season at home.

The Dolphins are scheduled to have four primetime games, the most since the 2004 season, including three in a row from Weeks 8-10. It is the first time in franchise history the team will play three straight primetime games. Miami will first appear in primetime on Thursday Night Football in Week 8 (Oct. 26) at Baltimore. In Week 9 (Nov. 5), the Dolphins will host Oakland on Sunday Night Football. The following week will feature Miami at Carolina on Monday Night Football on Nov. 13. The Dolphins will also play on Monday Night Football in Week 14 (Dec. 11) when they host New England.

Miami’s home schedule features an impressive slate of opponents, including the past two Super Bowl champions – Denver and New England. The seven teams the Dolphins will host at Hard Rock Stadium were a collective 65-47 last year and all but two of them had winning records in 2016.

As a whole, the Dolphins will play the AFC and NFC champions from each of the past two seasons – Denver, New England, Carolina and Atlanta. Of Miami’s 16 games, three will come against teams that played in Super Bowl LI, five will be against 2016 playoff teams and eight will take place against teams with a winning record last season.

Miami will travel to London for a regular-season game for the fourth time in team history and kick off at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time on Oct. 1 vs. New Orleans. Miami won a 2014 meeting with Oakland at Wembley Stadium but fell short in a 2007 meeting with the New York Giants and a 2015 showdown against the New York Jets.

The Dolphins will also play two road games in new NFL venues. In Week 2 (Sept. 17), the Dolphins will play the Chargers at StubHub Center in the Chargers’ first regular season home game since returning to Los Angeles. In Week 6 (Oct. 15), Miami will play in Atlanta’s brand new venue, Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

* Game subject to flexible scheduling in Weeks 5-17
All times EASTERN

For the fourth straight year, a select number of games will be “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences. Some of those contests were announced today while the remainder of “cross-flexed” games will be decided during the season.

“Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 5-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move will be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to Dec. 31. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into primetime.
