    The Miami Dolphins' 2024 regular season schedule will not include another international game.

    That became official when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Monday at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas that the Philadelphia Eagles would be the host team for the first-ever regular season game in Brazil. That game will be scheduled for the Friday night of opening week, most precisely Friday, Sept. 7.

    The Dolphins are not scheduled to face the Eagles in 2024, so they will not be involved in that game. It once was believed the Dolphins might be strong contenders for that game because they're the one NFL team that has been assigned marketing rights in Brazil.

    The Dolphins also are not scheduled to face any of the other teams that have been assigned as home teams for the games in Europe.

    The Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings each will be the home team for a game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London; the Jacksonville Jaguars will return to Wembley Stadium as part of their multi-year commitment to playing a game in the U.K.; and the Carolina Panthers will be the home team at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany.

    For me, that's good news. We haven't won an international game yet, have we? It's an unnecessary distraction.

    Yeah too bad our team will regress this year. We could have used that one game home last year which could have changed the entire season!

    Yeah, they should just forfeit the entire season.

    The game in Germany was supposed to a home game for KC. We didn't lose a home game overseas.

    I’m so glad we aren’t playing an international game. If you wanna do it preseason? Ok, I’m alright with that I suppose but an actual in-season game? Too brutal on the mind and body.

    I remember all of the international travel I used to do. Wreaked havoc on my body for at least a week until I adjusted.

    At least they are talking about doing the 1st game of the season. Should do it as a Friday night game. Plenty of time to get back home.

    I'm sure I saw something about the game against Chicago possibly being moved to Brazil, but I can't remember where I read that???

    Edit: Just tracked it down and it's Spain not Brazil. Meh, same difference... But Facebook though so probably BS.
