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

The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills square off Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Miami Dolphins look for their third road victory to get back to a .500 record. Ryan Tannehill is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,928 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Tannehill has six passing touchdowns in his last three games. Rishard Matthews and Jarvis Landry have combined for 966 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jordan Cameron has 19 receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 102.9 yards per contest, and Lamar Miller leads the way with 434 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Miami is allowing 24.7 points and 379.4 yards per game. Reshad Jones leads the Dolphins with 67 tackles, Ndamukong Suh has two sacks and Brent Grimes has nine pass deflections. Brice McCain, DeVante Parker and Ja'Wuan James are questionable.

The Buffalo Bills also need a win here to get back to a .500 record. Tyrod Taylor is completing 70.1 percent of his passes for 1,097 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. Taylor has five touchdown passes in his last three games. Charles Clay and Robert Woods have combined for 645 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Chris Hogan has 20 receptions. The Buffalo Bills ground game is averaging 123.9 yards per contest, and LeSean McCoy leads the way with 304 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing 24.7 points and 347.3 yards per game. Corey Graham leads the Bills with 64 tackles, Mario Williams has three sacks and Ronald Darby has 14 pass deflections. Corey Graham and John Miller are questionable while Sammy Watkins is doubtful.

The Dolphins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Bills are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. loss and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 9. The Dolphins are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Buffalo and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings overall. 

The Dolphins are a different team than when they played the Bills earlier in the season. Buffalo is also struggling with consistency, as the defense isn't as good as we thought and the offense is having issues due to a questionable quarterback situation. When you add in the fact the Dolphins have had a mini bye week to prepare, I really like Miami and the free field goal. 

The Fins should win this outright.
