Because of the Florida Marlins' schedule, we already know that the Dolphins will play at home weeks 1 & 3 and on the road weeks 2 & 4 (assuming a non-early bye). New England and Atlanta have already been announced as hosts of nationally televised games on Kickoff Weekend. That leaves six potential opponents for September 11th.

Based on nothing more than a hunch, I think it will be Carolina. I don't see a Tennessee opener in consecutive years or an opener in the division. Additionally, CBS isn't showing a late game that day because of the U.S. Open final, so Fox will need more of the games.

We hosted Tennessee last year to start the year so I figure they're out. I say it'll be a divisional game so either Buffalo or the Jets. And the winner is....

Buffalo!!!!!!!!!!

Way to whittle it down like that DolfanDave. I like the sound of just about any of those openers, and especially the fact that it will be at home. I like to think we just might win it too.
