NFL: Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins’ 2018 schedule has been released. The team will spend the first month of the season alternating between home and away games, with both of the away contests featuring AFC East division rivals. The team’s October schedule will feature an away game, two home games, and an away Thursday Night Football game, the only prime-time game on the schedule for Miami this year.

The second half of the season will see Miami play four of the six divisional games, starting with the New York Jets in November, then the Buffalo Bills twice in December along with one New England Patriots game. The Dolphins will also play at the Green Bay Packers, at the Indianapolis Colts, and at the Minnesota Vikings during this span, while hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars. They will also have their bye week in mid-November.

Strength of Schedule

The Dolphins are dead center of the league in strength of schedule this year, tied for 15th with the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, at exactly .500 (128-128). They have the toughest strength of schedule among the AFC East teams.
