One of the two divisions that the Dolphins will play against will be the AFC North, which could wind up being one of the better divisions in football in 2022.
Cleveland Browns (Home) – The Browns could be undergoing some serious changes in the off season, but they will still likely have the necessary pieces to be a playoff contender again in 2022. This game could have huge implications on the playoff picture as both teams will likely be competing for a wild card spot. The Miami Dolphins are just 2-5 against Cleveland in their last seven matchups.
Pittsburgh Steelers (Home) – The Steelers will have a new quarterback under center next season, thankfully for the Dolphins. Ben Roethlisberger was 7-2 in his career against Miami, including one of the very few Dolphins’ playoff games of this century.
Baltimore Ravens – The Dolphins will hope that this game is scheduled early in the season. The weather can get adverse in Baltimore in the winter months, and Miami has struggled mightily in cold games as of recent.
Cincinnati Bengals – The Bengals have become one of the most promising up-and-coming teams in the NFL, led by Joe Burrow and JaMarr Chase, who will forever be linked to the Dolphins due to draft history. This will be one of the most important games on Miami’s non-divisional schedule.
