The Miami Dolphins got some good news on Friday when Reshad Jones, Nolan Carroll, and Brent Grimes all were listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Daniel Thomas however was listed as questionable as he re-aggravated his ankle.
The Dolphins faced the New England Patriots with a patch work secondary against a patch work WR group. This week the Bills will throw out a few unknown WR’s of their own. Stevie Johnson is out following the death of his mother last Saturday (he spent the week with family in California). The Bills will now turn to Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, and T.J. Graham. Throwing them the ball will be back-up Thad Lewis.
On the surface or the surface of the paper it would seem like the Dolphins got themselves a nice edge but the reality is Thad Lewis beat the Dolphins in week six and are playing for pride. Pride is a dangerous weapon on both sides of the ball. With the weather being around 45* on Sunday with an 80% chance of rain the ground game could be the pivotal role for both sides. Both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are expected to play. The two have had success on the outside with Spiller and on the inside with Jackson.
According to recent reports the stadium has yet to sell almost 15,000 tickets for the game and the Bills have announced they will not buy the remaining tickets to lift a black-out.
