As Hurricane Matthew approaches Florida, there is question about whether or not Sunday’s Week 5 NFL contest between the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins will kick off as scheduled.

While the decision was recently made to postpone Saturday’s college football game between LSU and Florida (Florida’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is a little more than 300 miles north of the Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium), no changes have been announced by the NFL.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, potential solutions including delaying the game until Monday or Tuesday, but it’s unlikely to be moved to Tennessee.

The NFL released the following statement:

The hurricane, which has developed into a Category 4 storm, is expected to move past Miami by Sunday, but there are simply too many variables for the league to make a call at this point. Nevertheless, Titans head coach Mike Mularkey expects a decision soon.

“I think the rules are they have to make a decision by Thursday,” he said, “and that’s just league policy for anything that happens, not just in this case.”

For now, the game is still scheduled to kick off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Miami.

Of course, with the unpredictability of storms, this is a fluid situation that will likely see several developments. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any news or announcements that come along.
