The Miami Dolphins look to build on their big home win against the Pittsburgh Steelers as they host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Bills continued their surge in the AFC East with a big home field win over the hapless San Francisco 49ers and now they will be out for a divisional win on the road against the Miami Dolphins in a bitter show down of hated rivals. The Bills made a move in the early going this season by firing their offensive coordinator and since the move they have been tearing things up, especially on the ground as Lesean McCoy has been excellent in this Buffalo winning streak. Buffalo will need another big outing from him and the running game this weekend against a front four of the Dolphins that has a ton of talent and will need an equally strong game if they’re going to take pressure off of their secondary who has looked woeful this season.

The Dolphins were ripped apart by the Tennessee Titans of all teams two weeks ago and were on a war path at home against the Steelers last weekend, but an injury to Ben Roethlisberger derailed Pittsburgh’s offense and Jay Ajayi went off for his best game as a pro in what was a huge upset. Miami will need to get Ajayi and the running game going this weekend against a Bills side that has been cruising of late and has yet to experience a dip in performance since their prime time shellacking from the Jets.
The Bills are 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 5-1-1 in their last seven against the AFC East while the Dolphins are 7-20 ATS in their last 27 overall and 4-17 ATS in their last 21 against the AFC. Buffalo is on a roll right now and getting them at just a field goal is a gift in my opinion as they should cover here.
