Because of that postponement, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross asked the National Football League to move the Dolphins' Oct. 1 game in London against the Saints back to Miami.

Because of the postponement, Dolphins owner Ross asked the National Football League to move their game against the Saints in London on October 1 to Miami, but his request was denied.

Rather than hop across the pond, Ross was hoping to have the game at Hard Rock Stadium.

"I asked", Dolphins owner Stephen Ross reportedly said Monday. The Dolphins had also been scheduled for a London trip, meaning they not only immediately lost their bye week, but will only play seven games in Miami in 2017.

As it stands today, the Dolphins are set to play just seven games in Miami this season as the National Football League continues to send a few teams to London each year.

The Dolphins will have a team meeting Tuesday and will practice beginning Wednesday at the Dallas Cowboys' complex in Oxnard.
