Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL When: Sunday, November 17, 1:00 PM. ET. The Miami Dolphins will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.The Bills suffered a loss to the Cleveland Browns in their last game. They will be trying to bounce back from it and pick up their fourth win in their last six games when they face their AFC East rivals. They will also be going for their third consecutive win over the Dolphins and their fourth win in their last five games against their rivals.
Buffalo has been great on the defensive end this season, holding opponents to 16.7 points per game. They managed to hold Cleveland to 19 points on the road, but their offense couldn’t get going, which cost them the game. The Defense will need to do an even better job this week in case their offense struggles again.
The Bills are averaging 19.3 points per game, but in their last game against the Dolphins, they put up 31 points. The Bills have to play better offensively than they have in their last two games if they want to get the win.
Josh Allen completed 53.7 percent of his passes for 266 yards in their last game, but couldn’t find the end zone. Frank Gore, who leads the team in rushing, was also kept in check by the Browns, finishing the game with 12 rushing yards.
Both Allen and Gore will need to play better than they did in their last game to give their team a chance to win this game.
Dolphins Trying To Snap Losing Streak To BillsThe Dolphins had been competing with the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins for the worst record in the league, but they have reeled off two straight wins and will try to make it three wins in a row when they play on Sunday.
They will also be trying to snap their three-game losing streak to Buffalo when they renew their rivalry on Sunday.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, who led the Dolphins to their two wins, has been named the team’s starter for the remainder of the season by head coach Brian Flores. He finished the team’s last game completing 63.6 percent of his passes for 169 yards and one interception. He also added 23 rushing yards and one touchdown.
The team will need a sharper effort from Fitzpatrick against the Bills' aggressive defense to have a chance in this game. The offense will also need to score more than 13 points to pick up the win.
Defensively, Miami has struggled this season, giving up 29.8 points per game, but they have played better in recent weeks, giving up 15 points per game in their last two games. They will need another solid performance from their defense if they want to snap their losing streak on Sunday.
