NFL Announces Pre-Season Schedule


The league is rumored to be ready to announce the regular season schedule on April 17th.  That is still a week away but today the league gave fans a taste of it’s return.  The league has announced the entire slate of pre-season contests.

If you were hoping to get a National look at the Miami Dolphins prior to the start of the season, it’s not looking too good.  The Dolphins as of today have no primetime pre-season contests slated.  The NFL has not announced week 4, 5 if you count the HOF weekend as week 1, yet.  Miami will open the weekend of August 7th against the Atlanta Falcons.  They will stay travel in week two to face off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before coming home the final two weeks of the exhibition season to face the Dallas Cowboys and the St. Louis Rams.
