The Miami Dolphins have a deadline for their stadium roof: Aug. 25.
That’s when the team will host its first 2016 preseason game, the NFL announced Thursday.
So the franchise has a little under five months to complete all work on the stadium’s shade canopy. The Dolphins insisted recently it will be, saying that nearly half-billion dollar renovation project is on pace. Adding to the pressure: the game against the Falcons will air nationally on NBC.
Never miss a local story.
Here’s the full preseason schedule, which includes trips to New York and Dallas, and home games against Atlanta and Tennessee.
Week 1 (Aug. 11-15): at New York Giants.
Week 2 (Aug. 18-22): at Dallas Cowboys.
Week 3 (Aug. 25, 8 p.m.): vs. Atlanta Falcons.
Week 4 (Sep. 1-2): vs. Tennessee Titans.
The dates and times for the Giants, Cowboys and Titans games will be announced at a later date. All but the Week 3 game will air on WFOR-CBS 4.
