Bills vs Dolphins Odds – CJ’s Take
Ryan Tannehill had to sit out five games because of a shoulder injury, and he came back to the lineup last Sunday. The Dolphins got off to an early lead on a 33-yard pass from Tannehill to Kenyan Drake and led by ten points as late as the fourth quarter. But they allowed Indianapolis to score 17 unanswered points and lost 27-24. That took them down to 5-6 on the season, meaning that in all likelihood, they will have to win at least four of the next five games to even get playoff consideration. Fortunately for them, at least three of those games appear to be winnable, including a pair against the Bills. The bad news is that Buffalo is only one game behind them in the AFC East.
It is amazing the journey the Bills have been on this season with their quarterbacks, as they have had four different guys in the starting role. It was never really the intention to press Josh Allen into service early, but that’s exactly what happened after the acquisition of AJ McCarron didn’t work out. But then there were also Derek Anderson and Matt Barkley, in addition to Nathan Peterman, who washed out and was cut. Allen has taken his lumps as a rookie quarterback, completing just 52.5% of his passes, and he has been sacked 21 times. But he also has the ability to make some things happen with his legs, as he demonstrated last week with 99 rushing yards in a 24-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite all the abuse Buffalo has taken this season, they are now on a two-game winning streak, and as far as what’s remaining, only a game with New England appears to be a mountain too high to climb, meaning that they might actually have a chance to reach the .500 mark.
Miami is a team that has given up real estate on the ground – to the tune of 139 yards per game and 4.8 yards per carry. The Miami stop unit has not gotten a lot of pressure on the passer (just 18 sacks), but they have forced plenty of mistakes (70 interceptions).
Tannehill threw for just 204 yards last week, and even though Frank Gore has been a pleasant surprise (595 yards), this offense is going to need some real tweaking in the remaining games and in the off-season. So there is obviously speculation as to whether Tannehill will still be around, and the same can be said for head coach Adam Gase. There may be some interesting people available for the Dolphins’ ownership to draw upon, including Jim Harbaugh, who can’t seem to beat Ohio State.
One thing you can say about Buffalo is that they been able to hold up there end on defense, consistently being among the top six or seven teams in the league in yards allowed per drive. What has to be given extra consideration is that for most of the campaign, they haven’t been able to move the ball, leaving them in rough field position more often than not.
As long as Allen doesn’t make a lot of foolish mistakes (and there’s no guarantee he won’t), Buffalo has every opportunity to keep this game close, despite the fact that Miami has beaten Tennessee, Oakland, the Jets and the Chicago Bears at Hard Rock Stadium this season.
