New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins to play in AFC title game

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has announced that the Miami Dolphins will be the host team for the AFC Championship Game in Super Bowl XLIX. 

Gase said in a press conference that the team will host a special Super Bowl event at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“I think that’s a perfect spot for us because we’ve got some of the most talented players in the league, but also some of our greatest traditions,” Gase said.

“The Super Bowl is a great moment, but it also has a tremendous opportunity for our players to play on the biggest stage.”

The game will be played on February 7 at 7:00 p.m.

ET, and will be televised on ABC, NBC and CBS. 

The game was originally scheduled to take place on February 8 but was pushed back due to Hurricane Irma. 

“We’re not worried about our own playoff position,” Gases said. 

He added that he believes the game will “have a little bit of a boost” if the Super Bowl has a “major” effect on the season. 

On Friday, the Superbowl will kick off at 7 p.mpm. on ESPN.
