The Miami Dolphins asked the NFL to move their October game against the New Orleans Saints from London back to Florida, according to the Miami Herald.

“I asked,” Dolphins owner Stephen Ross reportedly said Monday. “It will be played in London.”

Saints-Dolphins will kick off at 8:30 a.m. Central time on Sunday, Oct. 1 from Wembley Stadium.

Miami, who had their season opener postponed against the Tampa Bay Bucs due to Hurricane Irma, have been driven to California this week as south Florida recovers from the storm.

The Dolphins’ home game with the Bucs was rescheduled to Nov. 12, the mutual bye week shared by the two teams. As a result, Miami and the Saints’ division rival Tampa will play 16 straight weeks without a bye like the league’s other 30 teams.
