MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins 2015 schedule was released on Tuesday night.
They’ll play their usual AFC East opponents twice, one home and one away, with one small difference.
Instead of hosting the New York Jets at Sun Life Stadium, the teams will face off in London on October 4th. Despite the game being played at a neutral site, Miami is the designated home team and as such will play one less game in South Florida.
The Dolphins other five home games should be just as exciting as a divisional game.
They’ll host J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans on October 25th.
Miami’s next home game comes four weeks later when the Dallas Cowboys come to down for the first time in eight years. This game will be played on November 22nd.
For the third year in a row the Dolphins will host the Baltimore Ravens. Miami has lost the last two meetings and considering this is the first game in the month of December (played on the 6th) it will be big for the Fins to start their home stretch off on the right foot.
Perhaps the most glamourous game on Miami’s home schedule comes on December 14th when the Dolphins will host the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The last time that Miami hosted a game on Monday night was Week 1 of the 2011 season against New England.
On December 27th the Dolphins will welcome Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts to Sun Life Stadium in a matchup of 2012 1st round draft pick quarterbacks. This will be the third time that Luck and Ryan Tannehill have faced off, with each coming away with a victory. This will also be Luck’s first visit to South Florida.
