Week Nine

@ Buffalo Bills

Game two features the Bills in Orchard Park,  a bitter place for the Dolphins to play. Luckily the weather shouldn’t be too bad this time of year but it will be cold. The Bills defense is still the big talk but the team should also have settled in with a quarterback by this time as well.

Why Miami could win

The Dolphins offense will be much better than the first meeting between the two teams and should have a better read on how to beat the Bills defensively taking away the Bill’s receivers. This will be a big game for the Dolphins corners and safeties and the linebackers will need to maintain their positions to keep McCoy from having a big game and getting into open space where he is very dangerous.

Why the Dolphins could lose

Miami doesn’t play well in Buffalo and it will not be a pushover game for them. The Bills are talented and well coached and Rex Ryan should have the Bills defense well prepared for this 2nd go around. It’s difficult to predict what the Bills may be doing at this point but they play the Dolphins very hard and for whatever reason Miami doesn’t play the Bills as well as they should.
