Miami Dolphins Vs Buffalo Bills Game Day Preview
The Miami Dolphins need a win in the 2020 NFL regular-season finale at Buffalo to generate a postseason berth for the 1st time since 2016.
Miami can also get into the playoffs with one loss by either the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts or Baltimore Ravens.
The Bills have already solidified their first division title since 1995, but a win would lock up the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs. Let the battle begin!
The big monkey in the room that goes without saying is the status of the Dolphins QB position. Rookie Tua Tagovailoa will get the start and will not have an opportunity to be saved by Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick tested positive for COVID-19 and is inalienable for this match.
On the topic of Tua Dolphins coach Brian Flores said “Tua has brought us a spark in many other games, but people forget that because they just remember the last thing,” Flores said. “I think Tua has played fairly well. People can disagree. We will agree to disagree in that case.”
Tagovailoa is 6-2 in eight starts this season. His touchdown-to-interception ratio is an impressive 10-2. 161.4 yards per game passing??? Not sure this will get the job done in Buffalo.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen has 34 touchdown passes this season, breaking Jim Kelly’s previous franchise record. Allen also has eight 300-yard games, which broke the previous team record set by Drew Bledsoe.
“The records, this and that, it’s cool,” Allen said. “But the plan is to get us to 13-3 to give us a chance in the playoffs. The records don’t mean much if we can’t get it done.”
Looks as if the Bills are playing to win on Sunday!
