With the Dolphins-Broncos game being pushed from week 6 next Sunday, the NFL has announced that the ‘Fins will instead host the New York Jets on that day at 4:05 p.m.
That means Miami will face the L.A. Chargers in Week 10 rather than in Week 7, which becomes a “bye” week for the ‘Fins.
The postponement of the game against Denver came after a third Bronco tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.
The teams will now play that game during Week 10, November 22, which was Miami’s original “bye” week.
It’s enough to make the ball roll and your head spin, isn’t it?!
Next week’s Dolphins-Broncos match-up is off…for now.
And it’s nothing to do with any of the ‘Fins.
So then what’s the reason?
Well, the Patriots and Broncos already had this week’s game postponed to next week by the NFL, due to concerns over the coronavirus.
That came after several Patriots players tested positive for the virus in recent days, including Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore.

The NFL has not commented on whether week 6 will become a “bye” week for Miami, or if their schedule will be adjusted to make up for this change.
Meanwhile, Miami will face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, October 11 at 4:05 p.m. for Game 5 of their season.
