Dolphins vs. Bills thread: Your turn, Mike McDaniel

The Dolphins are short-handed, but Buffalo is banged up too.

The Buffalo Bills will face the Miami Dolphins, with the winner named the AFC East champion. Both teams have clinched playoff berths, but tonight is about playing a home game next weekend.

The Bills have won five of their last six thanks to being more aggressive on the ground. But Josh Allen is banged up, and Stefon Diggs has voiced his displeasure.

Raheem Mostert and Jaylen Waddle are out for the Dolphins. This is a revenge spot for Miami, as Buffalo won 48-20 the last time these two teams played. But I can’t get the Bills struggles against the Chargers out of my head two weeks ago, and think there’s a significant coaching edge in favor of Miami here.

Yes, Bradley Chubb tore his ACL, and Xavien Howard has a foot injury. There’s still Jalen Ramsey, who should shadow Diggs. Allen is banged up, so he may not be as willing of a runner. I think it’ll be relatively low-scoring for these two teams.

The total of the game is 48.5, with the Bills favored by 3 on DraftKings Sportsbook.
