National Football League postpones Bucs-Dolphins game until Week 11

National Football League postpones Bucs-Dolphins game until Week 11”

The impending clash of Hurricane Irma on Florida's southern coast has caused a Week 1 matchup between the Buccaneers and Dolphins to either be moved to a later date or new location.

"The league will continue to examine other options, including playing the game this Sunday at a neutral site or in Miami later this season, and will provide an update on that decision as soon as possible", the statement said.

Both teams resisted switching to November 19 because it means playing the entire season without a break.

The Bucs will now start their regular season on Sunday, September 17th at home against the Bears, while the Dolphins will open up on the road in San Diego on the 17th. In 2004 the Dolphins played the Titans on a Saturday because of Hurricane Ivan, and the next year a game against the Chiefs was moved to a Friday due to Hurricane Wilma.

The Buccaneers and Dolphins shared a scheduled bye in Week 11. "But you've got a lot of guys in that locker room that are going through a lot of things in their head, and we've got to be mindful of that and help them any way possible".

At this point the Dolphins do not need to do anything but take care of their families and hope that Irma scoots to the East and doesn't have the impact that many have forecasted.
