The Miami Dolphins 2012 season is over and now their 2013 opponents are known. As the team awaits word on where they will draft come April, they can at least pencil in their home and away games for 2013.
AFC East: Buffalo (6-10), New England (12-4), N.Y. Jets (6-10).
AFC North: Baltimore (10-6), Cincinnati (10-6).
NFC South: Atlanta (13-3), Carolina (7-9).
AFC West: San Diego (7-9).
AFC East: Buffalo, New England, N.Y. Jets.
AFC North: Cleveland (5-11), Pittsburgh (8-8).
NFC South: New Orleans (7-9), Tampa Bay (7-9).
AFC South: Indianapolis (11-5).
The Dolphins will play all of the NFC South and all of the AFC North. The team will face five playoff teams from 2012. Each of whom posted double digit win totals this season. Only two of those will be on the road…New England and Indianapolis.
In addition, only Pittsburgh finished with a .500 record. Seven of Miami’s opponents finished below .500, three of those seven finished with worse records than Miami.
