The Dolphins are monitoring Hurricane Irma, which is projected to grow into a category 4 storm and could threaten South Florida ahead of Sunday’s season opener against Tampa Bay at Hard Rock Stadium.
As of now there are no plans to delay or move the game. But if South Florida is threatened by the storm it’s worth noting the Dolphins and Buccaneers have the same bye week, Nov. 19.
Last season Hurricane Matthew posed a threat to the Oct. 9 game against Tennessee at Hard Rock Stadium. The storm eventually curved away from South Florida and hit northeast Florida. The Tennessee game, a 30-17 loss that dropped the Dolphins to 1-4, was played with no weather-related issues.
But even as late as Wednesday of that week, four days prior to the game, the Dolphins said they hadn’t yet discussed plans to move the game.
Looks like there's another monster hurricane buzzing out there in the Atlantic ocean. Her name is Irma and she possibly has her eyes set on Florida next weekend. This would obviously have big time implications with our opener next Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Obviously a lot can change with the forecast between now and next weekend, but man I hope we don't have to wait another week for Miami Dolphins football!!! Most importantly, though, we need to hope this thing curves out to sea and doesn't affect ANYONE. Don't need another catastrophe on our hands!
