1. Offensive Line vs. Bills Defensive Line:
The Dolphins need to control the rush coming from one of the top defensive lines in the NFL. Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes can cause great havoc on the Fins' offensive line, and force Tannehill into awful throws, like we have seen in the past. All I can tell you, is that without Branden Albert, the Dolphins better adjust, and do it quick. This will be a LONG night if they cannot stop that Defensive front.
2. Shutting Down Sammy Watkins:
The stud from Clemson. All the chatter about Watkins has come because of his recent play. He has eaten up the Bills schedule, gaining 607 yards in 9 games. He also has managed to bring in 5 Touchdowns. This kid can give the secondary a hard time.
3. Pressuring Orton:
Like the Dolphins are trying to stop from this happening to them, the Dolphins have to get Cam Wake off the edge, and on top of Orton on the turf. In order to take some pressure off of the struggling offense, the defense, like it has been, must earn some stops. If they are able to do that, I am willing to give the Fins the upper hand in this one.
Prediction: Another blowout on Thursday Night Football
Dolphins 31, Bills 14
