The Miami Dolphins schedule is here assuming we play this National Football League’s season in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic moreover divide in a country full of racial unjust.
As of now, the beat will go on.
Off the top, the Dolphins have the third most robust schedule in the league. Two of the toughest teams they play will be at home when the Kansas City Chiefs who are led by Patrick Maholmes, who recently won the Super Bowl on the Dolphins home field and Seattle Seahawks.
There is no clear plan for fans returning to NFL games at the moment, so there may not be a real home-field advantage for the fish.
On the road, a west coast trip that includes the Las Vegas Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos will not be taken lightly considering changing time zones four times this season for Miami.
The month of September will set the pace for Dolphins season; they will be opening the season with three games in twelve days.
The AFC East is wide open now.
The fish begin swimming in New England against the now Tom Brady-less Patriots. A week later, they host Buffalo in their home opener before visiting in-state conference rival Jacksonville for a quick turnaround Thursday night game.
A league-wide testing plan will need to be in place for games to be played. The NBA and WNBA will be isolated in “bubbles” in separate locations for their seasons. Dr. Anthony Fauci, who continues to lead the White House Coronavirus Task Force on a media circuit, shared the NFL will need a bubble.
The Dolphins take their talents back home to host the Los Angeles Chargers. Then the other L.A. team, the Rams, come to Hard Rock Stadium to start the month of November.
Miami is the most improved team this offseason through free agency and the NFL Draft, specifically drafting Tua Tagovailoa.
I will not be surprised if Tua plays in the fourth game of the season or after.
Another wrinkle in the schedule, when Miami heads west to Arizona, they will return home to face their arch-rival New York Jets.
I predict the Dolphins to win nine games with safety first, and the season exists.
