Everyone's thoughts? Two of our last three games against the Bills is... well, interesting, to say the least (actually the Patriots are the same way.. only one game seperates our matchups). Not a fan of traveling in December to Buffalo though. At least we have an early trip to New York... We have nearly a month stretch of not being home from Week 2 to Week 4 though due to the "home" game in London. That kinda... sucks.

Two Monday night matchups and a Sunday night one is cool.

We don't play the Pats or Bills until late into the season.
Only one game in between Bills games
Only one game in between Patriots games.
Seems bizzare...

Very. After our buy we have two games against the Pats, two games against the Bills, and only two games against other teams. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing. I would actually say it's probably a good thing since we can gameplan vs the Pats during our bye and it will be fresh in the players' minds a couple weeks later. Same for the Bills.

Still it would be nice if the schedulemakers forced one of our division rivals to play away in the Miami heat of September one of these years. Rolling Eyes

Not a fan of the NE and BUF games being separated by only 1 game. However I am a fan of the bye week before the away game against NE, and the fact that we have a late bye.

4 primetime games against quality opponents is also nice to see. The schedule-makers must be believers in Miami this season.

No real games where we have a hot weather advantage.. maybe October 8th against the Titans and October 22nd against the Jets.

The AFC West and NFC South are tough divisions.

A very strange division schedule to me but I do like the late bye week for a change.
It would be nice to see at least 7 & 3 the first ten games and 3 & 3 or 4 & 2 the last 6 games.
I had hopes of going to the Carolina game if it was a Sunday game but I am not sure if I will be able to make it now since it is a Monday night game..

Not having a bye following our "home game" in London is B.S. too.

My understanding from the Audible show is that Miami requested not to have a bye after the London game. Maybe that was because Gase would rather have it later in the season when the team is more banged up, that's all I can figure.

I wonder if we also requested not to have any home games in September when the weather is hot and humid, except against Tampa Bay who is used to it. And requested we play Buffalo and New England on the road in December as per freaking usual.

I've learned to stop complaining about it. The Dolphins will get favorable breaks with their schedule when they start winning consistently.

I think this year's schedule is better than last year's, quite easily to be honest.
