LB Matt Milano was able to get into the Cleveland backfield a handful of times as he contributed 7 tackles, 2 TFL, and 1 sack. CB Tre’Davious White had a productive game from the secondary as he recorded 6 tackles and 4 pass deflections.
The Miami Dolphins come into this matchup with a 2-7 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Indianapolis Colts, 16-12. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled to get much offense generated through the air for Miami as he connected on 21 of his 33 pass attempts for 169 yards and 1 interception, but he did add a rushing TD.

The secondary had a productive game for the Dolphins as CB Nik Needham contributed 6 tackles, 3 pass deflections, and 1 interception while Bobby McClain and Steven Parker recorded interceptions.
The Miami Dolphins are playing much better football as of recent as they have won 2 consecutive games, but the Buffalo Bills are currently sitting in the playoff picture and they can’t let a game like this slip. Buffalo has one of the best defenses in the NFL as they rank 3rd in points allowed, and they like to force opposing teams into mistakes as they have 15 turnovers this season. The Miami defense is one of the worst in the NFL as they are allowing an average of 29.8 PPG, and this is the exact game that QB Josh Allen needs. The Bills have two speedy options in John Brown and Cole Beasley, and that should be able to stretch the field on the Dolphins for an easy win.
