AFC East clash, as the 1-6 Dolphins takes on the 4-2 Bills coming off of their bye week. Will the Bills get back to winning ways after their heartbreaking loss to the Titans in Week 6, or will the Dolphins turn the corner on what’s been a poor season and avenge the 35-0 drubbing they took at the hands of Buffalo in Week 2?
Miami was supposed to be nipping at the heels of the Buffalo Bills for the division this season, but those pipe dreams of reclaiming the East, have turned into a nightmare. Winless since Week 1 and with questions aplenty surrounding their QB situation and a certain, Mr Watson, it’s a turbulent time on South Beach. Tua has played better in their last two outings, but mistakes persist, and even with improved performances, he was unable to lead his side to wins over two teams Miami would’ve expected to beat heading into the year. In the three games Tua has started and finished, he has thrown four interceptions, and now faces a Bills side with the #1 turnover differential in the NFL. Tua was knocked out of the game by an A.J. Epenesa hit in the Week 2 game, and It’ll take something similar here for him to avoid throwing one into the hands of a Bills defender today.
Buffalo went for it on 4th and inches and came up short in their heartbreaking MNF loss to the Titans. The bye week will have given the Bills a chance to work on their red zone offense, something they have been struggling with this season, and I expect them to be much better in that department today and going forward. Josh Allen is the betting favourite to be crowned MVP this season, and he’ll do his chances no harm with an impressive showing today against a Miami defense that ranks inside the bottom three for points allowed and passing yards against them. Allen has owned the Dolphins, winning six straight games against them after dropping his first game in Miami as a rookie.
Spread: Bills -14.0
