FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- From the not-everything-is-hard-hitting-news department, the Dolphins have chosen to wear their aqua uniforms for tonight's season opener against the Patriots.

The Patriots, in turn, will be in their standard road white uniforms.

This is the same way it unfolded last year in Week 4, which was also a night game.

As part of their home-field advantage with the South Florida heat, the Dolphins have looked for an edge in past years by putting Northeast-based teams in darker colors early in the year. In those games, the Dolphins would wear white jerseys.

With this stop-the-presses news revealed, we can now resume our normal Monday programming.
