|Date & Time||Sunday September 27, 2015, 4:25 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Miami Dolphins -2.5 -- Over/Under: 44
The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins square off Sunday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium.
The Buffalo Bills look to rebound from their home loss to the New England Patriots. Tyrod Taylor is completing 75.5 percent of his passes for 437 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. Taylor has been sacked eight times. Percy Harvin and Robert Woods have combined for 213 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Charles Clay has seven receptions. The Buffalo Bills ground game is averaging 153.5 yards per contest, and LeSean McCoy leads the way with 130 yards on 32 carries. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing 27 points and 405.5 yards per game. Preston Brown leads the Bills with 18 tackles, Stephon Gilmore has four pass deflections and Nickell Robey has a sack. Marquise Goodwin and Tony Steward are questionable while Aaron Williams is doubtful.
The Miami Dolphins look to bounce back after a brutal loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ryan Tannehill is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 585 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Tannehill has a touchdown pass in six straight games. Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews have combined for 312 receiving yards and one touchdown while Greg Jennings has three receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 58 yards per contest, and Lamar Miller leads the way with 67 yards on 23 carries. Defensively, Miami is allowing 16.5 points and 372.5 yards per game. Reshad Jones leads the Dolphins with 23 tackles, Jordan Phillips has a sack and Brent Grimes has an interception. Branden Albert is doubtful while Cameron Wake and Jordan Cameron are questionable.
The Dolphins offensive line has had zero success in the first two games, and I doubt that changes against the Bills nasty defense. Last season, the Bills sacked Tannehill seven times in one game. This game could go either way, but Buffalo should be the team that's favored based on what we've seen so far.
