BALTIMORE–The Dolphins have waited seven years to get back on Sunday Night Football, and the league’s flexible scheduling policy will not impact their upcoming game against Oakland.

The NFL will keep Miami’s Nov. 5 game against Oakland in the premier Sunday night slot with an 8:30 kickoff on NBC. It will be the Dolphins’ first appearance on the broadcast since hosting the Jets in 2010.

That will give them three straight prime time games, including tonight’s matchup with Baltimore. After the Raiders game, they visit Carolina for Monday Night Football on Nov. 13. Miami also hosts New England for a Monday night game Dec. 11.

Miami split it’s prime time games last season, losing a Thursday game at Cincinnati and winning on a Saturday night against the Jets. Hard Rock Stadium’s last night game was when the Dolphins lost to the Giants on a Monday in December 2015.
