Buffalo Football Report Thursday Preview: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills

Week 9 Preview: Dolphins at Bills

Miami Dolphins (3-4) at Buffalo Bills (3-4)

KICKOFF: 1:00 p.m.

LAST REGULAR-SEASON GAME: 9/27/15 – Bills 41, Dolphins 14: Tyrod Taylor threw for three touchdowns in a Bills rout.

REFEREE: Carl Cheffers

DOLPHINS NOTES: Ryan Tannehill is 2-5 as a starting QB against the Bills… After running for 288 yards in Week 6 and 7, Lamar Miller was held to 15 yards against the Patriots… Jarvis Landry leads the Dolphins in receptions with 42… Miami will be without RT Ja’Juan James and DE Cameron Wake… Wake had seven sacks on the year, while the rest of the Dolphins have a total of six… Reshad Jones has scored a touchdown on both of his interceptions this season.

BILLS NOTES: Tyrod Taylor had a season low 12 yards rushing against Miami in Week 3, but completed 72 percent of his passes… Buffalo’s only 100 yard rushing game came against Miami in Week 3 (Karlos Williams)… Despite only having 11 receptions, Sammy Watkins is tied for the team lead in receiving Tds (2)… Buffalo will have John Miller, Seantrel Henderson and Cyrus Kouandjio returning on Sunday… Mario Williams will be matched up against Jason Fox on Sunday, a matchup that should help Williams increase his sack total… Both of Preston Brown’s interceptions came against the Dolphins… Leodis McKelvin will be returning to the active roster this week.
