The Miami Dolphins will play two Monday Night Football games during the 2017 season, a source told The Palm Beach Post on Thursday.

Miami will play at the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, and they will host the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium in Week 14.

Also, the Dolphins’ bye will be in Week 11 of the regular season, which means they will not have a game on short rest that week.

Beyond the Monday night excitement, The Post has also learned that the Dolphins will open the season at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Dolphins’ only other known game prior to the league’s official schedule release at 8 p.m. this evening is Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints in London on Oct. 1.

This means that the NFL honored Miami’s request to not have its bye week following its game in London. The Dolphins preferred to have their bye closer to the middle of the season.
