Well, it’s mid December and the Miami Dolphins are playing meaningful football games. For now.
Miami will travel up to Buffalo to face off against the Bills this Sunday at 1 in a must win game. If the Dolphins win, they will stay alive for a wild card birth in the playoffs. If they lose…well then the final two games of the season will become meaningless.
The Bills come in at 7-6 while Miami is 6-7, both teams coming off of a win. The Bills of course won that over time game in a blizzard last week, no such blizzard is in the forecast for this Sunday’s game, it is supposed to be a sunny 29 degrees. Buffalo will also be going back to their original starting QB, Tyrod Taylor, after Nathan Peterman suffered a concussion in last weeks game.
For Miami, they are riding a two game win streak, not only that, but those past two wins have been the best performances of the Phins season by far. Scoring 35 against the Broncos and 27 against New England. If Miami is going to win this game and stay alive in the playoff race, they will need to ride that wave of momentum into Buffalo and perform as well, if not better, than they have these past couple of weeks.
And if they win this game, then who knows? After all, it is the NFL and anything is seemingly possible these days.
