Dolphins-Bucs game postponed until November due to Hurricane Irma

Jay Cutler makes his Dolphins debut this week

Darlington is also reporting that the Dolphins and Bucs were pushing to play the game Thursday, but there was a state of emergency called in Florida.

In the face of Hurricane Irma, which is set to affect the state of Florida this weekend, the National Football League decided Wednesday to postpone the scheduled game between the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday. Their game at London on October 1 against New Orleans is designated a home game for Miami.

As for alternatives, both teams have a Week 11 bye.

Some members of the Hurricanes' women's basketball team were evacuating on Wednesday to Georgia, to get out of Irma's expected path. Miami has canceled classes until at least Monday. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the impacted areas".

One Facebook user says: "This is a disrespect to Hindu religion, hurting our sentiments and a senseless campaign". The MLA defended its ad as inclusive and the result of extensive extensive research and consultation.

Irma has reached Category 5 in strength and some models have the storm potentially making a direct hit on South Florida this weekend. Both teams were scheduled to be off that week and now will play 16 consecutive games.

The postponement allows the Dolphins to preserve their seven home games at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Dolphins now open the 2017 season at the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 17, while the Buccaneers open at home against the Chicago Bears. Whether it's a postponement or moving the game up, the league is going to need to do something if projections continue as they have been.
