The Dolphins (2-7) look for three consecutive wins for the first time since the 2008 season as they welcome the Buffalo Bills (5-4) to Sun Life Stadium.
The Fins are coming off wins against the Chiefs and Redskins, while Buffalo is sputtering a bit, having lost two straight and three of their last four, including a 44-7 defeat in Dallas last week.
It would seem these are two teams headed in opposite directions–the Bills were 4-1 not all that long ago, while the Dolphins were 0-7. There are many players responsible for the Miami’s success the last couple of weeks and we asked our panel of analysts which guy they thought has been the biggest key to the recent turnaround. What do you think?
Despite the recent struggles for the Bills, they are not a team that the Fins seem to be taking lightly. You can check out what a lot of the players have been saying about their division rivals and some of the challenges they present. Additionally, we’ve put together a bunch of audio from this week, so you have the chance to hear from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, coach Chan Gailey, as well as radio analyst Mark Kelso and reporter Tim Graham.
As for injuries, the Fins are looking pretty healthy, with just three players listed on the official injury report. Buffalo, on the other hand, will be without several key contributors. So with the injury advantage and the homefield advantage, what do the Dolphins need to do on the field to pick up their third straight win? For those answers and more, John Congemi presents his keys to victory.
Finally, here’s a video preview of the game, as former Dolphins tight end Troy Drayton and I break this one down:
