Miami Dolphins Move Week 2 Game Against Oakland Raiders

When the NFL schedule was released on Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins' Week 2 home game against the Oakland Raiders was penciled in for a 4:15 p.m. ET start time to be nice to the Raiders' fans on the opposite coast. Because the NFL schedule is made with a very wide variety of concerns that need to be accounted for, someone failed to account for an important Jewish holiday.

Rosh Hashana starts at sundown on the evening of that Week 2 game, and patrons would struggle to get home from the game before the sun went down. Out of concern for their Jewish fans, the Dolphins and the NFL have moved the game, and it's now a 1 p.m. kickoff. The NFL isn't a huge fan of midday outdoor games in September in Florida, but accounting for the needs of Jewish Dolphins fans who wanted to attend the game was a much bigger concern.

2012 NFL Schedule Release: Tampa Bay's Lone Primetime Game

The NFL released schedules yesterday for all 32 teams, which means it's time to go up and down and pick out each spot where your team can earn wins. That also means it's time to start circling some dates on the ol' calendar, and that typically includes the primetime match ups. Here is out Bucs Nation blog with more on the Buccaneers lone primetime opportunity.

There's just one prime time game, and it's in Minnesota in week eight on a Thursday night. That Thursday night game comes on the heels of a Sunday game against the Saints at home, giving the Bucs only a few days to prepare for the Vikings, especially so when you factor in the travel time to Minnesota. That certainly won't help them win. The fact that the Bucs have no other prime time games makes it likely that the team will face a lot of blackouts this year.

Every team will get a Thursday night matchup this week, so that game for sure won't get blacked out.

2012 NFL Schedule Release: Miami Dolphins Will Play One Primetime Game

The NFL released the schedules for each NFL team on Tuesday, which means that it's time to comb over it with a fine tooth comb and figure out which games present the juiciest matchups. Typically, that means the primetime games, when the NFL wants to put the team on display. Unfortunately for the Dolphins, they only get one such game.

The NFL promised that each team would get a Thursday night, NFL Network matchup, and that is the primetime game that the Dolphins will play. They will face the division rival Buffalo Bills in a primetime game on November 15th, likely an opportunity to get Mario Williams in front of a big audience. They will be coming off a game against Tennessee the week before, meaning that they'll be playing on a short week. The good news is that they then have ten days off before facing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12.

Jaguars 2012 Schedule Set; Jags Will Play One Prime Time Game

The Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 NFL schedule was released on Tuesday evening, along with the rest of the NFL's. The Jaguars received three total primetime games last season, but all three were really duds as far as ratings and entertainment wise. The Jaguars went just 1-2 in primetime last season, beating the Baltimore Ravens in a game of field goals and defense.

After a 5-11 season, the Jaguars have gotten just one primetime game for the 2012 season, which should come as no surprise. With the opening up of the Thursday Night schedule, every team in the NFL will get at least one primetime game, and the Jaguars will have one on Thursday Night.

In what's become kind of a staple for the Jaguars in primetime, they will take on the Indianapolis Colts on November 8 on NFL Network. The Jaguars have played the Colts in primetime a handful of times over the past few seasons. The team will presumably take on the No. 1 pick, who most expect to be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
