Dolphins open Monday Night schedule, play Thanksgiving

By chriswalsh

Note: Computer viruses suck, hence the delay on 15 at 15.

This was too important not to get to.

The Miami Dolphins will host the first Monday Night game of the season, and guess who’s coming to South Florida – New England.

The Dolphins are getting some national spot light love this season with a pair of Monday night games.

September 12, mark your calenders. If the football gods are really cruel, the season will stay locked out and Sun Life Stadium will be dark. But if not, what better way to kick off the season.

Then on October 17, the ‘Fins travel north for what has become an annual airing of the Dolphins and Jets rivalry. This one takes place at the Meadowlands.

Between then Miami will host Houston in a rare 4:15 start, travel to Cleveland, then travel to San Diego for the dreaded cross country, no rest trip.

After that they get a bye, before heading to Jersey.

The next five games are 1 p.m. starts, host Denver, travel to the Giants and Chiefs, then host Washington and Buffalo.

The Dolphins then travel to Dallas for a Leon Lett Bowl rematch with the Cowboys on Nov. 24 at 4:15 p.m.

After that the rest of the games are at 1 p.m. Miami hosts Philly and Oakland, then takes on the winter with back-to-back trips to Buffalo and New England before hosting the Jets in the season finale on New Years Day at 1 p.m.

What does all of this mean?

The families of Dolphins fans are not going to be in for a fun season.

Opening Monday night, Thanksgiving and New Years Day. Should be a fun season.
