The NFL has CONFIRMED that the Buccaneers and Dolphins will not be playing their week one matchup in Florida, as Hurrican Irma has officially caused the season to start in an unconventional way.
While the NFL has not "officially" set a date, Adam Schefter seems to have one in mind.
This would leave the Miami Dolphins with no bye week and a 16 straight week schedule INCLUDING a trip to England. The Buccaneers would have 16 straight games as well, but they at least can stay in the continental United States for all of it.
What a crazy way to start the year.
