What you need to know about the Dolphins

The Dolphins took a 21-11 loss against the New England Patriots this past Sunday. Ryan Fitzpatrick had one of his poor performances that could threaten his status as a starter: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw three interceptions with only 191 yards passing. The former Bill is hoping a return to Miami can help him produce better results. He passed for 12 TDs vs. six INTs in seven home games last season.

Despite the offseason acquisitions of Matt Breida and Jordan Howard, Myles Gaskin led the Dolphins rushing attack with just 40 yards. DeVante Parker (questionable, hamstring) had seven catches for 135 yards in the last meeting with the Bills. Kyle Van Noy has four sacks and three forced fumbles in his past four games vs. Buffalo. 

What you need to know about the Bills

Meanwhile, Buffalo beat the New York Jets 27-17. Josh Allen passed for two TDs and 312 yards on 46 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 57 yards. Allen has 11 TDs (eight passing, three rushing) in his past three games vs. Miami. Stefon Diggs led the team with eight catches for 86 yards last week in his Buffalo debut.

The Bills have won five of the last six meetings between the teams. John Brown is aiming for his third game in row against Miami with five-plus catches, 80-plus receiving yards and a TD catch. Sean McDermott has a 5-1 record against the Dolphins.
