Dolphins RT Jonathan Martin has gone AWOL from the team after being the victim of a prank orchestrated by his teammates. As per Jay Glazer, Martin was in the team cafeteria and none of the other players wanted to sit with him. Then he reportedly “flipped out, smashed a food tray on the ground, took off, and they haven’t seen him since.” Hes now at a treatment facility for an unknown condition. I dont have an opinion on this until I know for sure what exactly happened, but he's been under a lot of pressure and this appears to be a serious issue.

Matthews will need to step up. Will be interesting to see if the Fins also look to add a WR as well. WR Brian Tymes was just taken off our practice squad last week, talk about bad timing!
For Miami it is the usual suspects, loaded with 2013 draft picks:
Will Davis - cornerback*
Mike Gillislee - running back*
Jamar Taylor - cornerback*
Dallas Thomas - guard / tackle*
Danny Watkins - guard
Will Yeatman - tackle
Pat Devlin - quarterback
*indicates 2013 draft pick
For New England there are a couple names that may be a benefit to the Dolphins:
Chris Barker - guard
Steve Beauharnais - linebacker
Juke Bequette - defensive end
Josh Boyce - wide redeiver
Tommy Kelly - defensive tackle
Aquib Talib - cornerback
Leon Washington - running back.
The loss of Aquib Talib makes the Pats defensive secondary weaker. He has 4 interceptions on the season and also missed last weeks game against the Jets.

The official Miami Dolphins twitter account just posted that the Dolphins will travel to London next season to play the Oakland Raiders. The game was originally to be played in Oakland but will now be played in the UK. The scheduled date of the game has not been announced.

McKinnie has given up only one sack this season compared to Clabo's 8, then again he has been inactive the past 2 weeks.

I am not going to do an in-depth write up this week because I don't believe this game deserves one. Look at each teams rosters, Miami has far superior talent on both sides of the football. I also feel they have a big edge in the coaching staff department as the few times I have seen Buffalo this year I have not liked what I have seen out of rookie head coach Doug Marrone.
Cam Wake is back at 100% and will be playing and with no knee brace and one would like to think that with the bye week we will see some improvement with the Dolphins offensive line. The Bills are starting a 3rd string QB who is banged up. I think this game will be ugly and get ugly quick. Easy Miami win Miami 41 Buffalo 10

I would qualify this as a "rumor" at best so take it with a grain of salt.

WHEN BALTIMORE HAS THE BALL: It's all Joe Flacco this year. The Ravens running game has been poor and Ray Rice isn't 100%. It's about getting pressure to Flacco and forcing him to throw on the run or rush throws. WR's Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown are both injured and questionable for today's game. The WR unit is hurting and that might end up being a big advantage for the Dolphins. I expect Cam Wake to play some in this game on 3rd down. His snaps will be limited but the fact he is on the field at all should help Miami. Hopefully he can "go" this week even if its only 20 snaps or so.
WHEN MIAMI HAS THE BALL: The Dolphins must protect Ryan Tannehill,....period. End of debate. They can't give up the number of sacks they are giving up each week any longer. Tannehill is getting killed. And this notion out there that some of the sacks are Tannehill's fault, please. Stop. It's silly. On some of these plays guys are coming in un-touched or Tannehill is running for his life 2 seconds after getting the snap. The vast majority of these sacks are on the blocking up front and let's not sugar coat things. For the love of god BLOCK SOMEBODY ALREADY! I expect the same in the passing game where Wallace is the decoy which opens things up for Hartline and Gibson to have big games. Lamar Miller improves each week. I expect another 60-70 yard performance out of him today. I think the Dolphins offense has played well for the most part this year (for the talent level they have) and I don't see much changing.
This game reminds me a lot of the Week 2 game vs Indy. Two equally matched teams in a game that will be a dog-fight and go down to the bitter end. MIAMI 23 BALTIMORE 20
