Who is playing Sunday Night Football tonight, Sept. 17? (and how to watch)

As the summer temperatures finally start to cool down (a bit) and fall is getting closer and closer, millions across the country are enjoying the start of the 2023 NFL season. After the Super Bowl earlier this year saw the Kansas City Chiefs taking home the big win, all eyes are on Patrick Mahomes to see how he’ll perform this time around. And of course, there are plenty of other players worth keeping a close watch on, because it truly is anyone’s game at this point.

This year’s NFL season began earlier this month on Sept. 7 with the Chiefs taking the field to play the Detroit Lions. The matchups so far have been extremely exciting, and I think most NFL fans are just happy to have football back on their screens for the regular season. It’s such a great time of the year!

And of course, there’s nothing like Sunday Night Football. Tonight, we’ll see the primetime game air live on NBC and stream on Peacock. Here’s who’s playing and how you can tune in.

NFL live stream for Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots

Don’t have access to NBC through cable? That’s totally fine; you can still watch the Dolphins and Patriots game tonight. That said, you’ll have to be subscribed to a live TV service, which includes Peacock (NBC’s streaming service), FuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, or any other platform that offers NBC live. Some of these services offer free trials if you’re only looking to watch tonight’s game, but we’d recommend signing up for any of these services if you plan on watching Sunday Night Football each week.

When was the last time the Dolphins went to the Super Bowl?

The Miami Dolphins have won two Super Bowls in the team’s history, however, they haven’t appeared in the big game in quite a long time. The Florida team last appeared in a Super Bowl in 1973, where they won against the Minnesota Vikings 24-7. Their previous appearance came a year before that in 1972, where they won the title against the Washington Commanders (then the Washington Redskins) 14-7. The consecutive titles are no doubt impressive, but Dolphins fans hoping they can make it that far again sometime soon.

When was the last time the Patriots went to the Super Bowl?

As for the Patriots, they’ve been much more successful in the NFL in recent years. They’ve appeared in 11 total Super Bowl games and have won a whopping six of them. This puts them in a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers as the NFL teams with the most Super Bowl wins. The Patriots’ last appearance in the big game came in 2018 when they won against the Los Angeles Rams 13-3.
