Dolphins Heading Back to London in 2017

The Dolphins will play a game against the Saints in London during the 2017 regular season

The Miami Dolphins will head back to London and host the New Orleans Saints during the 2017 season.

The announcement of the overseas contest came on Sunday and mark Miami's first game in London since the 2015 season. The Dolphins will lose a home game in Miami and will only play seven regular season games at Hard Rock Stadium.

With a newly renovated building and playoff aspirations, this is likely a game the Dolphins would prefer to host in their own building. However, Miami was eligible for a relocation due to the upcoming Super Bowl in its home building.

In 2015, the Dolphins hosted the New York Jets at Wembley Stadium. It was there that Miami lost going into a bye week. During the time off, the Dolphins fired head coach Joe Philbin. That game was the third time that Miami played in London. The team also has taken on the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders.

Overall when playing at Wembley Stadium, Miami is 1-2 and has served as the home team twice already. It is traditional that teams receive a bye following the game in London due to the travel involved. The full schedule has yet to be released, but it is likely the Dolphins and Saints will both be off after this contest.

As of yet, the date and venue has not been announced. More details should be revealed by the team and the league in the weeks ahead.
