WHEN MIAMI HAS THE BALL: The Dolphins offensive line held up and played exceptionally well last week vs the Pats. This week they will have another tall order playing vs a very talented Buffalo defensive line. Vince Wilfork dominated both Dolphins guards last week but Fins back-up center Samson Satele just controlled Wilfork all day long. Satele will need to bring another A+ performance this week. Mario Williams, Marcell Darius, Kyle Wiliams, and Jerry Hughes are a very talented group and this group had its way with the Fins o-line last year. As we saw last week with Bill Lazor calling the plays the Dolphins will want to run the ball early and often. If the Fins run the ball like they did last week they will be a tough team to beat most weeks. Knowshon Moreno was fantastic last week and he will be leaned on again but don't sleep on Lamar Miller. When Moreno got going Miller's game picked up and he began running harder himself. Miller will get his opportunities this week and if the light-bulb has finally gone off for him watch out. He has 4.2 speed and has the ability to hit that "home run" on any play. While Moreno will be the focus of the Bills defense this week look out for Lamar Miller to maybe break a big play or two. The passing game I think will be similar to last week; feed Mike Wallace all day long. Wallace was moved all over the field and given the ball a lot. I expect that to continue. Also look for Charles Clay to get more involved in the offense this week as well. And as always the game comes down to Ryan Tannehill making wise decisions and protecting the football.
OUTCOME: This game is going to be close....real close. I think it will come down to field position, and which team can avoid the big mistake. The Dolphins offense played well last week but there were a couple mistakes they made and they left points on the field. If they can clean those up I think they can have a good day. You can pass vs the Buffalo secondary and I expect Miami to come out throwing. While EJ Manuel isn't great the Dolphins defense scares me. No Misi, No Jordan, No Jones, No Ellerbe....they are missing a lot and are asking a lot of young guys to play big roles. The Bills all but ended the Fins season last year with that Week 16 beat-down they laid on the Dolphins. They swept the Fins last year as well and really just physically beat Miami up. This Dolphins team isn't the same though. The offensive line is rebuilt and more weapons have been added on offense. If the Fins defense can bend and not break I think Miami sneaks out a close win here. The Dolphins owes this Buffalo team one and will get a little revenge this week. MIAMI 27 BUFFALO 26
