Dolphins' preseason schedule
By James Walker
The new-look Miami Dolphins announced their five preseason games. Considering the high expectations, there will be a lot of pressure for the Dolphins to gel and play well early this summer.
It was already announced that Miami will face the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 4 in Canton Ohio. The Dolphins and Cowboys will be the first two teams to open the exhibition season.
The Dolphins will play four additional preseason games at the Jacksonville Jaguars, at the Houston Texans and with two home games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.
Miami and Dallas are the only NFL teams with five preseason games this year. The Dolphins must manage their players carefully this summer in training camp and exhibition games in order to stay healthy.
