On Monday, the Miami Dolphins announced that they'd be hosting 13,000 fans--all of whom will be required to wear face masks--at their September 20 home opener against the Buffalo Bills at Hard Rock Stadium. As UPI notes, the Dolphins' announcement comes on the heels of the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs saying they'll allow 16,000 masked fans at their September 10 home opener. Hard Rock Stadium, which has a capacity of 65,000, will also host the University of Miami football team's home opener on September 10 against Alabama-Birmingham.
