Staff cautiously optimistic with Miami Dolphins in week 13 Bills predictions
The Miami Dolphins will host the Bills this Sunday and the PhinPhatic staff gives your our final score predictions.
This week we asked the staff of PhinPhanatic to give us their Miami Dolphins predictions heading into Sunday. The Dolphins look to salvage their season after a heartbreaking loss to the Colts last week.
The throwbacks are coming out, so there’s no way the Dolphins can lose. The Bills are also a mess, lest we forget. The Dolphins will decisively win the first of two games against their intradivisional rivals and balance their record at 6-6. With two games against the Bills, there’s still hope for the Fins’ playoff hopes, but it will be an uphill struggle. The Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen is still taking his lumps, but he could be a surprise threat against the Dolphins reeling run defense after he ran for 99 yards against the Jaguars. The Dolphins are the better team and will play as such on Sunday.

We saw Miami put up 24 points against Indianapolis with Ryan Tannehill back and I think they will do it again at home against Buffalo. Josh Allen back at QB gives the Bills a little spark but it won’t be enough. The Dolphins get back to .500 and even though we’ve all pretty much lost hope, they stay in the playoff race for one more week.

The Bills look to be the healthiest team to date from past predictions with just 3 players on IR and 5 listed as questionable but it probably wont matter with rookie QB Josh Allen having a QBR under 40. He might have his TE back in former Dolphin Charles Clay maybe he will dive OB for a pass hurting himself prompting some harsh media type to make a moniker for Allen. Former Dolphin Jordan Phillips might make a big play provided he hasn’t had one in four games making him due for one. The makeshift Dolphins should win this one at home.

This one has all the makings of what looks to be an ugly game on paper. Miami plays better at home, but the Bills admittedly, have a pretty decent defense. I expect it to stay low scoring, and that Miami’s defense will make the necessary plays by taking advantage of rookie QB Josh Allen.

Miami is coming off a tough loss in Indianapolis, that being said the Miami Dolphins will have to apply a lot of pressure on rookie QB Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills. He has been sacked 21 times in the 6 games he has played this season. Also, former Dolphins DT Jordan Phillips is playing his first game against the Dolphins since being released from the team earlier in the season but has not been very effective in Buffalo. Bills present a great defense overall but the Dolphins offense will find a way to win out this game against a Division rival.
Dolphins 31 Bills 28
Dolphins for some reason play like a different team at home, and refuse to be bested by the lowly Bills. The defense will create turnovers against the rook and will come away with victory!
Dolphins 27 Bills 13
The Bills bring a stout defense and a wandering offense. Josh Allen will comprise the role of starting QB and with that will be the first time Miami will see him. I expect a defensive battle that will result in the home team scraping a win.
