Dolphins get Patriots twice in 15 days

Getty Images

If, as Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry recently predicted, his team will sweep their AFC East rivals from New England, it will go down in a 15-day stretch late in the 2017 season.

The Dolphins travel to face the Patriots on November 26. Two weeks later, they host the Patriots on a Monday night. In between, the Dolphins face the Broncos in Miami.

It will be a challenging stretch for a team that got to the playoffs last year for the first time since 2008. The only good news is that their bye comes before the game in Foxboro.

The rematch will be one of four prime-time games for a franchise that once was among the league’s elite — and that could be moving back in that direction now, with coach Adam Gase quickly turning a perennial also-ran into a contender.

The other three night games come back-to-back-to-back for Miami, with a Thursday night trip Baltimore on October 26, a Sunday night visit from the Raiders on November 5, and a Monday night stop in Carolina on November 13. Those six games, sandwiched around the bye, will go a long way toward determining whether the Dolphins are ready not just to get to January, but to win some games once they arrive there.

    16 and 0 looks unlikely for Miami. But 15 and 1?

    So 2 wins for the Patriots in 15 days.

    Now the Dolphins fans fans will tell us how this is their year
    and like they do EVERY offseason.

    2 home games versus the Dolphins late in the season, good deal!

    The Patriots have 5 of their division games in the last 6 weeks. I guess the league got tired of the Pats having the AFC East locked up by Week 12.

    their “home game” against the Patriots is also in Mexico City to boot..Good luck there Jarvis

    Or….The Patriots get the Dolphins twice in 15 days. Although I still very much see the Pats winning both, the Dolphins under Gase look like they are going to stop being the pushover they once were. Pats should win but nothing is guaranteed. No gimme’s there.

    The Dolphins will already be eliminated form contention by the time these games come around.

    Hard Rock Stadium will be rocking on that Monday Night !

    Tom Brady has a losing record in Miami including losses in 3 of the last 4 games he’s played there. The Dolphins have a chance to get one. With that being said, he’s only lost to the Dolphins one time in Foxboro… in his entire career… and that was 11 years ago.

    //////////

    He will get a rest — a first-round bye for the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Phins will head right into their annual offseason vacation.

    ” In Gase we Trust”… Why?

    So, he’s won nada. Nothing. Zilch. Zero. Nice try.

    The schedule could have been a lot worse. Phins are home before the Thursday game and the Ravens are not, travel to Baltimore is quick. Then 11 days off before the 2nd toughest home game on the schedule while Oakland is playing the 2nd of 2 straight East Coast games. Follow that Sunday night game with an extra day off before another easy travel road game in Charlotte with them coming off a game against Atlanta and a bye before having to face the Pats there with them in the middle of the worst part of any team’s schedule, a rested Phins team is their only home game in a month and a half stretch! Granted it’s not likely but if the Phins are ever going to take the division from a Brady led team these schedules sure make it a lot more plausible. Look at New England’s schedule; @ Denver then the Raiders in Mexico, home against the Phins, @ Buffalo, then here followed by @ Pittsburgh. 5 of 6 on the road with miserable travel thrown in. They must be foaming at the mouth over that schedule in New England and considering the opponents the Phins drew this year Ross couldn’t have done better if he wrote that schedule himself.

    Oh yeah Fins are up alright, WAY UP!

    By that point the Pats will have already won the division and can rest their starters.

    He did win a wild card birth. In his first year as HC. Which no one expected. Again, better than belichick in his first year. I’d say he’s doing his job.

    Interesting how the patriot ideal gas law specialists bring cheating into the conversation.
