Rams-Dolphins game will be televised in Miami

It’s not known how many tickets were sold to Sunday’s game between the Rams and Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.  It is known, however, that the Dolphins have complied with the NFL requirements for games to be broadcast locally.

It’s known because the Dolphins have announced only that they have complied with the NFL requirements for games to be broadcast locally.

The Dolphins opted this year to reduce the threshold for televising home games in the local market to selling 85 percent of all non-premium tickets.  Whether and to what extent the Dolphins and/or their sponsors wrote a check for any tickets short of that number wasn’t — and likely won’t be — disclosed.

The team’s two prior games were televised in South Florida.  If the 2-3 Dolphins can keep winning, maybe they’ll comply with the NFL requirements for games to be broadcast locally without having to buy any tickets.

  1. The Dolphins haven’t been blacked out locally since 1997. I find it hard to believe that streak would stop now, particularly if they continue to show some promise. They aren’t out of the woods yet, but there is certainly some cause for optimism in South Florida.

  2. put a winning product on the field. Im 1 of those tools that still goes to games only to be let down. I’ve been to a ton of fins game in the past 7 years and can count on 1 hand how many they won. Still my team! GO FINS!

  3. I’m not a Miami fan, but the two games I’ve seen this year they look greatly improved.

    So I think it is great that their fans who can’t attend the game will at least be able to watch them.

  4. If your a fan who loves good defenses and Special teams then this is the marquee matchup of the weekend

    Dolphins own the rams like 9-2. Sunday will be no different. Rams can’t win on the road.

    Fin’s can’t win at home. Your point is?

  6. A bunch of us Ravens fans flew down to Miami in November 2003 for a Ravens/Dolphins game. The game sucked, a 6-3 Dolphins win. But the Dolphins fans were absolutely great, and they made our visit big fun. Hope to go back some day. I know there are so many distractions in the South Florida area, but I just can’t figure why they have a hard time selling out.

  7. Got my tickets yesterday, didn’t help the cause though.. NO WAY I would pay face value on tickets. Thanks Stubhub 😉 I can already taste that first 9am beer in the parking lot! GO DOLPHINS!!

  8. The game will be televised? Is Roger Goodell handing down some sort of punishment to the good people of Miami?

  9. Additional -This is a team that hasn’t proven it can win on the road.

    The Rams are 0-2 on the road this season, and going all the way back to 2007 are 7-35 in their last 42 road games, with records of 1-7, 2-6, 1-7, 1-7 and 2-6.

    Quit living in the past dude. This is a new team with a new coach. Just make sure you make yourself available on here after the game

  11. The Rams have won 18 games since the beginning of the 2007 season to the present point in this season. That is an 11-7 home road split. If you just point out the 7 road wins in 5+ seasons that seems terrible, but the Rams have been terrible period,for a long time. Guess what? The Rams aren’t terrible anymore. They have a real head coach that knows what a game plan is and i smell the first road win of the season.

  12. Should be a great game where the dolphins come out on top. I’m really hoping the outcome of this game will not be close enough for the outcome to rely on carpenter. I am or have been a huge fan of carpenters success and I think we should keep him the rest of the season. All players go through a slump and showing loyalty and faith in him enough to keep him around could turn out to be a great thing in the long run. In the meantime, untill he demonstrates consistency anything less than 5 yards outside the 30, let’s go for it! This offense has incredible balance and you have know idea what they might throw at you to pick up the first. Rams rely soley on Steven jackson and there number one favored wr by far is inactive, dolphins 27 rams 14

  13. The Rams are 0-2 on the road this season, and going all the way back to 2007 are 7-35 in their last 42 road games, with records of 1-7, 2-6, 1-7, 1-7 and 2-6.

    Clearly some need to have this soak in some more. Time to switch to kool-aid light.
