The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins face off in a Week 2 NFL showdown at Hard Rock Stadium. When these two teams faced off in January, the Bills came away with the 56-26 victory.
Not many people expected the Buffalo Bills to be sitting with an 0-1 record at this point of the season. The Bills had one of the best offenses in football last season, but they could only manage 16 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first game, which led to the seven-point defeat. Josh Allen threw the ball 51 times and finished with 270 yards and a touchdown. Running back Devin Singletary had 11 carries for 72 yards. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs had nine carries for 69 yards. The defense for the Bills wasn’t awful, but they gave the Steelers too many short fields. In this game, the Bills need their defense to be better and make life tough on the Dolphins' young quarterback.
On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Dolphins who opened up their season with a 17-16 victory over the New England Patriots. Tua Tagovailoa played well completing 16 of his 27 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. Tagovailoa still makes some young mistakes though, and his one interception wasn’t a good one. Running back Myles Gaskin was the top player for Dolphins rushing nine times for 49 yards. On defense, the Dolphins gave up 281 yards through the air and over 125 yards on the ground. If the Dolphins want to win this game, their defense is going to need to be a whole lot better.
The Bills are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games. The Dolphins are 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall. The over is 7-3 in the Bills last ten road games. The under is 5-2 in the Dolphins last seven home games. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings played between the two teams.
The Dolphins only gave up 16 points in the first game, but they still let the New England Patriots move the ball up and down the field. The Bills are going to get a good game from Allen, and they will score at least 31 points in this game. The Dolphins are also going to move the ball against the Bills defense, and the over will cash.
