Building the Miami Dolphins 2017 schedule: Week 5 fan vote

The Miami Dolphins will be hosting the New England Patriots in Week 3 if the fans were to build the team’s 2017 schedule. The Dolphins, under our fan built schedule, would open the year with the New York Jets in Miami, then travel to the Kansas City Chiefs, before bringing New England to South Florida.

The Week 4 game is already set, with the Dolphins facing the New Orleans Saints in London. That pushes our poll to Week 5, where the Dolphins have requested a home game, rather than the usual bye week that follows a trip over to the United Kingdom.

This also means the Dolphins will open the season with four of their first five games counting as a home game, meaning they will be on the road for seven of the final 12 weeks of the year.

Below, you will find a poll (sorry Google AMP and Apple New users, as the system will strip the poll for those formats), allowing you to vote for who you think the Dolphins’ Week 5 opponent should be. Due to the NFL’s rotating schedule system, we know the home and away games for Miami, including the opponents to be played.

Here are Miami’s 2017 opponents:

What should be the Miami Dolphins’ Week 5 contest? (Note: The Dolphins have asked for this to be a home game, so the poll only includes those games.
