Dolphins on Monday Night Sept. 21

One year after falling out of prime time elite status, the Dolphins are returning to the NFL's regular-season signature game of the week when they play on Monday Sept. 21 at Dolphin Stadium according to an NFL source.

News of this prime time game the second week of the season is the first trickle of what will be a stream of NFL and Dolphins schedule news coming out in the next hour.

That prime time game will be possible because the Marlins game against Philadelphia, scheduled for 7:10 on Sept. 21, will be moved to another date.

Meanwhile, the New England Patriots have announced on their website their game against the Dolphins in Miami is scheduled as a prime time Sunday night game. The date of that game is not on the release. But that's two prime time games for Miami so far.

I'll have the season-opener as well as this prime time game opponent and other information for you in the coming minutes. Check back here for more updates.
