Dolphins To Face Heat Wave In Buffalo


The Miami Dolphins are preparing for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and weather has been at the top or near the top of as many discussion as Michael Thomas.  Now it appears that a warm front moving up from the South may warm the Orchard Park area with a little balmy weather.

If you consider the 40′s balmy.

The Dolphins will surely take it.  Only a few days ago early forecasts had the Buffalo weather slated to hover in the mid-low teens with the possibility of snow showers.  Now it appears rain could be a factor as the temperature is expected to rise.  According to, rain and wind will greet the Dolphins along with 45 degree weather.  The winds could gust up to 22 MPH depending on the strength of the southern system moving North.

Overnight temperatures will drop to below freezing and the melting snow will likely cause huge traffic issues come Monday morning but for the Dolphins the warmer weather may be a key factor in the teams success.  While it’s likely the Dolphins will not see snow the 80% chance of rain will not be comfortable.  Buffalo  is expecting a mix of rain and freezing rain on Saturday night and the upper level atmosphere should let loose ice that will turn to water making the rainy conditions frigid.

No hourly forecast is available yet but it is something to keep an eye on as the Dolphins try to extend their winning streak to four games and keep their hopes for a playoff birth alive.

    It’s sounds like a field position game.. Win the flip and defer.. Go with the wind at your back!!! 20 MPH Winds are no joke… But we’ve played in worse right at home…

      No blaming the weather today Johnny.

    The offensive game plan has to be excellent. Got to have a running game. Doesn’t have to be all power though, kind of how the Patriots run the ball – with deceptiveness. Use quick passes to double as a running game. A reverse or 2 to Wallace. Get up on the scoreboard early and most importantly don’t turn the ball over. Conversely, I say 1 v 1 Bills receivers and STOP their running game at all costs. Force Thad to beat us in the air. Put it on Grimes and company to stop that from happening. Could be an easy game IF Fins play smart. Go Fins!

      How’d that pan out today John? Not as easy as it should have been. Guess we’d better fix our offensive line before next year. Speaking as a Bills fan of course. Can’t plan on beating you guys with mostly field goals next year, after all. Seriously though, what was Wheeler thinking today and did you have coaches on the payroll this past week? Granted, the Bills are rough around the edges with all the youth, including the new staff, but there was no real game plan, talk about not taking the game seriously. Take a few minutes this week, call the radio stations, write a letter, remind your team to not look past a game in the future, I know I’d be pissed as hell if I were you tonight. The year was on the line today for you guys for crying out loud. I couldn’t believe the play calling. Well, see ya next year, I’d wish you luck, but, you know.
