Devastation is about to hit Southern Florida. Hurricane Irma has reached status of a category 5 Hurricane and has begun to hit Caribbean Islands early this morning.
Due to the catastrophic events that may be occurring in Florida and with Florida already beginning to evacuate citizens, the NFL has decided to postpone the week one game between the Dolphins and Buccaneers.
The two teams share a bye week during week 11. The game will be made up then on November 19th. Both teams will now play 16 straight weeks this season without a bye week.
A situation that is not ideal for player safety and for two teams trying to make a playoff push.
