MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins today announced their 2023 schedule presented by Enhance Health.

Miami's 2023 schedule is highlighted by three primetime games, as well as two additional stand-alone, nationally televised matchups. The Dolphins will play nine regular season games at Hard Rock Stadium, including a 4:25 pm kickoff on Christmas Eve against the Dallas Cowboys and will host Monday Night Football at Hard Rock Stadium for the first time in six years, with a matchup against the Tennessee Titans on Monday, Dec. 11. That contest will kick off at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN. The home opener will be on Sunday, Sept. 24 vs. the Denver Broncos at 1 p.m. The Dolphins will host divisional opponents New England (Sunday, Oct. 29 at 1 p.m.) and the N.Y.

Miami will also play in some nationally televised contests away from South Florida. On Sunday, Nov. 5, the Dolphins will travel to Frankfurt, Germany to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Jets at MetLife Stadium in the NFL's first Black Friday game. The game will be televised nationally on Prime Video and, even to those who do not have a Prime membership.

The first comes in Week 2, when Miami heads to Gillette Stadium to play the New England Patriots on Sept. 17 at 8:20 p.m. The Dolphins will also play on Sunday Night Football against the defending NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 22 at Lincoln Financial Field. It marks the first time since 2003-04 that Miami has played in multiple SNF games in consecutive seasons after the Dolphins played twice on Sunday night in 2022.

Overall, the Dolphins will play eight games against seven different playoff teams from the 2022 season including both conference champions in Kansas City (AFC) and Philadelphia (NFC).

The Dolphins also announced their opponents for the 2023 preseason schedule. Miami will open the preseason at Hard Rock Stadium vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.
