Miami returns to Hard Rock Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 27 against the Detroit Lions.

Miami took the last regular-season matchup against the Lions, a 32-21 victory on Oct. 21, 2018.

The preseason concludes on Thursday, Sept. 3 when Miami plays at New Orleans. The Dolphins also concluded the 2019 preseason in New Orleans with a 16-13 win over the Saints. Miami is 15-7 all-time against the Saints in preseason contests.
