As leaks came out yesterday got very excited that I might get to the Chargers game, but they put it in the only spot left that didn't work for us as already going to the London game.

Disappointing!

But a strange schedule, think the NFL gave us everything we asked for, but maybe we didn't think it through very well.

Miami-LA-NY-London-Miami-Atlanta-Miami-Baltimore-Miami-Carolina is a LOT of travelling on the bodies with such a late bye week.

Then 4 of the last 6 vs Pats and Bulls with Chiefs away not a pleasent Christmas present in week 16!

Granted if we fly we could be 5-0 with nothing too scary those weeks before it ramps up.

Equally that week 9 SNF (the middle of 3 consecutive primetime games!) could get pulled quickly if we are 3-5!

Does look quite tough after the bye with 2 vs NE, DEN, KC and 2 vs BUF and lots of cold weather games after the bye.

Interesting the Dolphins opted not to bother with the bye after London.

Also weird having 3 consecutive prime time games (although great to the Fins getting some respect and back making plenty of prime time appearances), and weird playing both NE and BUF twice in the span of 3 weeks.

Looks like a tough year, but then last year did before the season as well.

I dont blame the team for asking for a late bye, but I'm not sure it'll work. Definitely racking up the air miles.

I'd have liked to have seen an early home game against the Pats, but it is what it is.

It's really tough to judge the schedule at this time of year.

There are always teams who look tough in April, who end up not being what we expected, or getting key injuries. And then there are plenty of teams who end up being better than anticipated.

First few weeks look very winnable... but better not take them for granted!

Those first few weeks might not work out well. The Bucs & Titans are playoff contending teams, & the Chargers are a team I have researched (having mock drafted for them) who aren't as far behind tough divisional rivals as last years record may suggest

The Saints and Jets have rosters weaker than ours so wins are achievable there, but a road trip to the Falcons in there as well? Far from easy...then we start moving towards the cold weather trips
Overall its within our division I think we can start loading up in the win column

With the bye week now being replaced by the cancelled Bucs game, the schedule just got tougher... :(
