New, comments

We've known the opponents for awhile, but now we get into the nitty gritty. Roll up your sleeves, boys and girls.

Editor's side note: (Holy s**t, the Rams give up the farm and the NFL schedule is revealed in the same day. Not a bad day during the "dead season" for a news-craved fan like myself!)

The NFL schedule has been revealed, and may give us a few moments of pause before the mock drafts get fired up again. Without further ado, let's take a look at the Miami Dolphins schedule in 2016. At the end, I'll provide some "first thoughts" from SUTTON's point of view. I know I'm stupid and you want me to shut up, but I think it'll be worth it.

Week 3: Cleveland Browns

Week 4: @ Cincinnati Bengals (Thursday night)

Week 5: Tennessee Titans

Week 6: Pittsburgh Steelers

First Impressions

  • Adam Gase isn't going to have any "warm-up" games to get this team ready for regular season mode. We open the schedule with 3 out of 4 road games against high quality 2015 Playoff teams. Absolutely brutal.
  • We FINALLY have a bye in the middle of the year. The bye week is sandwiched by 4 straight home games. Hopefully the Miami heat is still a factor, as 3 of the teams are coming from colder weather climates.
  • We have back-to-back road games on the west coast, but I envision the Miami Dolphins staying out there after the San Diego game to eliminate the time warp going against 3 time zones for 2 consecutive weeks.
  • We finish the season with 3 straight divisional games, 2 of them on the road. We've had a dismal AFC East record in the last few years, and it will be telling if an Adam Gase-led team can not only finish strong, but compete in the division in December (and January 1st).

Well what do you think my crazy-ass brothers and sisters? Are we in for a world of pain? Might we surprise some people? I am Ron Burgundy? Let's hear it down in the comments section!
