Here’s the Dolphins full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the Miami Dolphins schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Miami Dolphins are officially set to kick off their 2021 season against the New England Patriots at 4:25 ET at Foxborough, which will also be their first divisional game.

The Miami Dolphins just missed out on a playoff berth, despite finishing the season with a record of 10-6. Miami was 8-4 after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals heading into Week 13. The Fins finished the last four weeks with a record of 2-2, which included two bad losses to the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills. Rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa struggled in the season finale but had a lot of good moments that gives Miami hope for the future. In the offseason, the Dolphins upgraded the offense in a significant way with the free agent signing of Will Fuller and the first-round pick selection of Jaylen Waddle. The future and present is very bright for Miami as it will be interesting to see if they can put it together this season.

All times listed are Eastern.
