Hey, what about the last preseason game?
The NWS issued a hurricane watch for south Florida this morning. Ernesto is expected to hit sometime between Wednesday and Thursday. The Phins are "monitoring the situation" and may change the game time at some point.
But, here's the thing: the NFL mandates all the last-week preseason games be played by Friday evening, thus giving every team a chance to rest for the season that begins the following week. The challenge here is that the Phins play in the first regular season game in Pittsburgh on Thursday, so they only have a week to prep, anyway.
There's not much room for movement of the game, I wouldn't guess...
