That game against Philly, scheduled for Dec. 15, is part of a tricky five-game stretch to end the season.
The stretch begins with a game at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. The league didn't do the Dolphins any favors by scheduling them for a night game the previous Sunday.
Then on Dec. 7 the Dolphins play at New England at 4:15 p.m., followed by the Monday night game against the Eagles.
The Dolphins then play at Buffalo on Dec. 21 (should be cold) before finishing at home against the hated New York Jets.
The Dolphins' bye will come early; it's scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 28.
