Miami has the Jets this week @4pm, Cardinals @4:25pm, Chargers @ 4pm, Broncos @4pm and mostly likely the Raiders game will be a late game too.
I understand the West Road games being late but why are the home games vs the Jets and Chargers late games?
Don't really care for late games because I hate waiting til mid evening to watch Dolphins football. Especially if the 1pm games are abysmal like it was last week. I took a nap and woke up with miami having 1st and goal vs SF early in the 1st qtr lol But I don't think I've ever recall Miami having 6 4pm games in a season.
Anyone actually prefer late games?
Then early '70s the Miami area was incredibly frustrated when the Dolphins were relegated to the 1 PM games far too long, even after they had obviously surged under Shula. Once you reached 4 PM level that meant the supreme NBC announcing team of Curt Gowdy and Al DeRogatis. It was so amazing in those early '70s when the Dolphins finally were advanced to the 4 PM slotting and also the Monday Night showcase with Cosell, Meredith and Gifford. It felt like the entire country was watching. Then when it was an obscure 1 PM game against some Crap team it didn't feel the same. The Dolphins thankfully would use Csonka to grind out those games in methodical fashion and finish at 3:35 PM so there was still plenty of time to grab a snack or something prior to the 4 PM theater.
For me, that's absolutely true. When I use Sportsurge to stream the games, I have much better success with the 4pm games than the 1pm games because there's less server traffic. That's how I saw last week's game.But there are generally fewer 4 PM games so I feel like they have a higher likelihood of being shown to more people
Sunday it is supposed to be 85 degrees at 1pm. (Compare that with 64 degrees in NYC.)I think at this time of year, the heat isn't as much as a factor as it was in September.
