Titans at Dolphins will remain in Miami after Hurricane Matthew

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at 1pm - exactly as scheduled. There was concern the game may have to be moved due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew, which is working its way up the Florida Atlantic coast and into Georgia and the Carolinas. Multiple media reports have all indicated that the game will not have to use any contingency plans to make sure it is played.

There were discussions early in the week about the game potentially being moved to Nashville.

The game will be the second regular season game played in Miami’s renovated Hard Rock Stadium and is the first of a four-game home-stand. The Dolphins will not have another road game until Week 10, hosting the Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets as well as having their one annual bye week.

Hard Rock Stadium was designed to be able to withstand a Category 4 hurricane. Matthew has reached that level, but the area around the stadium only received tropical storm level winds. The Dolphins closed their offices on Thursday in anticipation of the storm, but were back to work, including holding practice in the afternoon, on Friday.
