On the other side of the Ball, Miami will need to watch out for Buffalo’s talented cornerback.
Tua Tagovailoa did a pretty good job going up against New England’s defense, even if it was without Stephon Gilmore. He will need to be even better on Sunday.
Tre’Davious White is coming off two stellar seasons where he ended up with All-Pro honors (first team in 2019 and second team in 2020). White can take away one side of the field and shut down the opponent’s best receivers by himself. Miami will have to run a very creative offensive game plan to try and move defenders off of the better receivers on this roster and keep White from making any big plays.
Miami will need to have a big day from their receiving corp, led by DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle. The addition of Will Fuller will also help this unit become a bit more dangerous, meaning that Miami doesn’t have to force the ball in White’s direction. Tagovailoa should have a bunch of options when he drops back to pass and will just need to make sure that his passes are out on time and accurately. Miami can’t afford some of the passes that we saw against New England that were rushed or poor decisions. White will feast on those.
Miami would also benefit from working a bit more to get the running game going. If Miami can get another week of solid play out of Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed, that could keep White from having a monstrous impact on the game.
