Miami Dolphins 2014 schedule here (free)

So the Dolphins open the season against the Patriots at home and end the season against the Jets at home.

In between?

The first three games include games against two playoff teams (Pats and KC) and at the team that swept Miami last season (Buffalo).

The Raiders game in London on Sept. 28 followed by the bye.

Cold weather and outdoor game at New England prior to the season finale.

The team will play two prime time games -- hosting the Bills on Thursday night Nov. 13. and at the Jets Monday night Dec. 1.

“Our organization is excited about the schedule and we look forward to playing our home opener in front of our great fans,“ said coach Joe Philbin. “We also start our season with two division opponents, travel to London and finish the year with two home games. As always, our off-season program and training camp will be paramount in preparing us for the upcoming season.”

First leak of NFL schedule upon us

The Dolphins will play at the Detroit Lions in Week 10 of the NFL season, the Detroit Free Press just reported.

The full schedule will be announced at 8 p.m. and I assume some reporters (me included) are trying to get as much of the schedule as possible prior to the announcement.

Miami's opponents in 2014 posted a record of 103-103-2 in 2013.

The team will host Minnesota, Green Bay, Baltimore, San Diego and Kansas City as well as AFC rivals Buffalo, New England and the Jets.

The Dolphins will host Buffalo on Thursday, Nov. 13 for a prime time game.

The Bills will be Miami's second game of the season as the Dolphins will travel to Western New York on  Sept. 14 at 1 p.m.

The team will visit Detroit (in Week 10), Chicago, Jacksonville, Oakland (in London on Sept. 28), and Denver, as well as divisional opponents New England, Buffalo and the Jets.

The bye week will be Oct. 5 -- following the trip to London.
