The NFL releases its 2019 schedule at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

But this is the age of Twitter. Why wait that long to find out who the Dolphins play — and when?

Details will emerge throughout the day, and we will have the updates as they come in.

As a reminder, in addition to hosting and traveling to the three AFC East teams, the Dolphins visit the Browns, Cowboys, Colts, Giants and Steelers and are home against the Bengals, Ravens, Eagles, Redskins and Chargers.

UPDATED (12:18 p.m.): The first leaks are out, and they involve the Patriots. The Dolphins host the Patriots in Week 2 (Sept. 15) and close the season in New England (Dec. 29), according to The Athletic.

So remember the Miami Miracle? You can be sure Bill Belichick does — and will try to right that wrong early in the season.

Ending the year on the road is no big surprise; the Dolphins prefer it because it helps preserve Hard Rock Stadium‘s field for the Orange Bowl.

Despite winning the Super Bowl, the Patriots will not open the season on Thursday night. Rather, they will reportedly host the Steelers in the first Sunday Night Football game of the year.

UPDATED (12:27 p.m.): The New York Daily News apparently has a copy of the New York Jets schedule and Adam Gase’s new team will play his old team twice.

The first meeting is scheduled for Week 9 (Nov. 3) in Miami.

The second meeting will be Week 14 (Dec. 8), in December, at MetLife Stadium.

Gase dominated the Jets when the teams played during his three years in Miami. He was 5-1.

Now, the Jets coach will be looking to turn that trend around as he seeks revenge for being fired as Miami’s head coach last December.

UPDATED (1:27 p.m.): More dates are pouring in. And one in particular is intriguing: Dolphins at Giants in Week 15 (Dec. 15), per NorthJersey.com. That means, assuming the reports are accurate, that the Dolphins will play in MetLife Stadium in consecutive weeks in December.

Furthermore, multiple published reports have the Dolphins hosting the Ravens in Week 1, meaning home games in each of the first two weeks. In other words — hot, hot, hot.

UPDATED (1:58 p.m.): Las Vegas thinks the Dolphins will be one of, if not the, worst team in the NFL this year. But that didn’t stop the NFL from assigning them a Monday Night Football game: Oct. 28, against the Steelers, the Miami Herald has learned. That’s Week 8, if you’re keeping track.

We now know seven of the nine Dolphins dates this year, including four of their road games.

The last time the Dolphins visited Pittsburgh, they were smoked 30-12 in the 2016 Wild Card Round — one of the coldest games in team history.

UPDATED (2:05 p.m.): The Dolphins will be traveling to Cleveland on November 24 — the before Thanksgiving.

The Browns, who featured former Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry, are expected to be one of the AFC North’s better teams in 2019.

UPDATED (2:45 p.m.) You know the dates of the Jets and Patriots game. Let’s round out the AFC East games.

The Dolphins will play at Buffalo on October 20. The Dolphins lost the season-finale in Buffalo last season.

The Dolphins will host the Bills on Nov. 17 at Hard Rock Stadium.

Thus the AFC East schedule is complete.

(3:28 update) There was a report by the Sports Business Journal last month that the Dolphins would spend Thanksgiving Day at Dallas.

Incorrect.

The Dolphins will indeed visit the Cowboys but the game will be Sept. 22 at Dallas.

So the first three weeks of the season are known, per sources.

This is what we know so far:

Sept 8: Baltimore

Sept. 15: New England

Sept. 22: at Dallas

Sept. 29:

Bye week

Oct. 13:

Oct. 20:

Oct 28:

Nov. 3: New York Jets

Nov. 10:

Nov. 17: Buffalo Bills

Nov. 24: at Cleveland

Dec. 1:

Dec. 8: at New York Jets

Dec. 15: at New York Giants

Dec. 22:

Dec. 29: at New England
