As we await the official word coming at 8 p.m. Eastern tonight when the NFL officially releases it’s 2017 full regular season schedule, there have been multiple leaks of the three Florida team’s dates and opponents.
Some interesting tidbits, if true:
The Buccaneers will be fresh off of being on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” in preseason and will travel to…..Miami to play the Fins in week one (September 10th) at 1 p.m. at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Buccaneers apparently will be on stand alone national t.v. with both Super Bowl participants and both, as home games. They will apparently be playing the champion Patriots on Thursday Night Football October 5th at Raymond James Stadium. Tampa Bay will also host the NFC champion and division rival Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football on December 18th.
For the Dolphins, they have will two games on MNF, themselves, playing Cam Newton and the Panthers in Charlotte on November 13th. Then, the Fins will host the Patriots in an AFC East showdown on December 11th at Hard Rock Stadium.
It has already been announced that Miami will also be playing the New Orleans Saints in London on October 1st at 9:30 a.m. Eastern in a game the whole country will see.
Finally, that leads us to the Fins guaranteed Thursday Night game which is at Baltimore week 8.
For Jacksonville, a leak out of Houston says the Jaguars will open the season at AFC South rival Texans on September 10th. Also, the Jags will apparently be hosting the Seahawks on December 10th.
Jacksonville also has a London game, as well, with the Ravens on September 24th.
We will have more on each of the teams later in the evening on F.F.I.
