Dolphins schedule 2017: Fan vote for Week 8 and 10 games

Time for another poll to build the Miami Dolphins’ 2017 regular season schedule. So far today, we have already selected the team’s Week 1 through Week 7 contests, and now, we will move to a double poll post, allowing you to select who should be on the Dolphins’ schedule for both the Week 8 and Week 10 games - with Week 9 templated to be the team’s bye week.

Basically, with the time constraint of trying to complete the polls before the actual schedule is released tonight - and (more so) because I just figured out the system now allows multiple polls in one article, you can vote for both games. If the same game ties, I will give it to Week 8, then select the second highest voted game as the Week 10 contest.

We are also going to lock in the Week 17 game. The league pushes divisional games into the end of the season, including in the final week. Rumors of the schedule seem to indicate that the Jets will be playing at the Patriots in Week 17, which means Miami will have to be playing the Buffalo Bills that weekend. Since we already used the Dolphins at Bills game in our schedule, we will put the Bills at Dolphins into Week 17.

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 8 and 10 opponents 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:
