September 13th

After going 1-3 in pre-season the Dolphins kick-off their 2015 regular season with a trip to Washington to face the Redskins. Washington jumps out to a quick lead and the Dolphins fail to impress looking rusty. In the 2nd half Jarvis Landry returns a punt for a touchdown. The score would put the Dolphins ahead and would end up being the game winning score.

Miami would travel to face the Blake Bortles led Jaguars in an in-state rival game. The Jaguars would control both lines of scrimmage and hold Miami to 20 points. The Jaguars would win by three points.

September 27th

With phase two of Sun-Life Stadium construction completed the Dolphins open their season at home against the Buffalo Bills. Miami enters the game 1-1 playing poorly in the first two outings. The Bills jump to a big first half lead scoring 27 points at the half. The Bills would route the Dolphins 41-14.
