Happy 2018! Your Atlanta Falcons are in the playoffs, somehow

Happy 2018! Your Atlanta Falcons are in the playoffs, somehow

It is 2018, and the Falcons are back to the postseason. The 2017 offseason and season were long and arduous for the Atlanta Falcons. After the Super Bowl loss, Atlanta was locked in to months upon months of 28-3 jokes and Super Bowl hangover talk. While free agency and the draft were fun, as always, the rest of the year was basically one long desire to forget. The Falcons did themselves no favors by starting the season 4-0 and then crapping out and falling to the likes of the Bills and Dolphins. As the offense continued to spin its tires, something it did off and on basically all year...

Buffalo Bills 22, Miami Dolphins 16: Another close win against Miami

Buffalo Bills 22, Miami Dolphins 16: Another close win against Miami

The Bills were in control til the end, and Jordan Poyer saved the day. The Buffalo Bills scraped out another close win against the Miami Dolphins, 22-16. A Jordan Poyer interception with Miami down by six and closing on Buffalo’s side of the field sealed the win for the Bills. They finish the season with a winning record at 9-7, but they’ll only make the playoffs if the Cincinnati Bengals can eke out a win over the Baltimore Ravens in the next few minutes. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase opted to give backup quarterback David Fales a trial, benching Jay Cutler after the opening drive....

Buffalo Bills 10, Miami Dolphins 0: Second half open thread

Buffalo Bills 10, Miami Dolphins 0: Second half open thread

So far, the Bills are on track for a winning record in 2017. The Buffalo Bills need a win and some help to be invited to this year’s playoff dance. Through two quarters, they’re on track to hold up their end of the bargain, leading the Miami Dolphins 10-0. Miami began the game with the ball, but quickly finished three-and-out. Matt Milano pulled a five yard tackle for loss on the first play from scrimmage, and E.J. Gaines nearly picked off a Jay Cutler pass on third down. Adam Gase, with his team already eliminated from the playoffs, treated this game like most fans playing Madden with...

Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins first half open thread

Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins first half open thread

The day is upon us. Will 2017 end on a high note? The Buffalo Bills can gain entry into the 2017 NFL Playoffs with a victory over the Miami Dolphins today. Of course, the Bills will need some help either from the Cincinnati Bengals or both the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders, but the possibility exists that the Bills can make the playoffs for the first time since the close of the 1999 season. Tyrod Taylor will take his career 115.6 quarterback rating against the Dolphins to Hard Rock Stadium, hoping to become the first Bills’ signal caller since Rob Johnson to lead the team...

Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins week 17 inactives

Deonte Thompson is ready to roll The Buffalo Bills are in desperate need of a win this week, as any other result against the Miami Dolphins will result in their 2017 season coming to an end. The Dolphins are already eliminated, but they’d like nothing more than to ruin Buffalo’s potential playoff bid to cap off 2017. Although he was injured in practice, wide receiver Deonte Thompson is active this week, which is great news for the Bills. Running back Marcus Murphy, activated this week off the practice squad, will also suit up for the Bills. Buffalo will play without the following...

Buffalo Bills have never missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker

Buffalo Bills have never missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker

This season is setting up to be truly unique. If Buffalo loses today, or even if they win, the Buffalo Bills (currently 8-7) could potentially be sitting at home thanks to a tiebreaker loss. If it happens, it will be the first time in team history Buffalo loses a tiebreaker for a playoff spot. If either the Tennessee Titans (8-7) or Los Angeles Chargers (8-7) win their game, Buffalo would lose the tiebreaker to them, even after defeating the Miami Dolphins. The Bills are behind in conference record against the Titans, and lost a head-to-head matchup against the Chargers. Buffalo has...

The Bills could be in the playoffs by the end of the day Everyone is aware of what needs to happen for the Buffalo Bills to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999. In case you have forgotten, the Bills need to defeat the Miami Dolphins and get a Cincinnati Bengals win or wins from the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars. The odds may be stacked against the Bills, but it is Week 17 and the playoff chances are still alive. Regardless of today’s outcome, playing a meaningful Week 17 game is something that has not happened in quite some time. Enjoy today’s games, and check...

Miami Dolphins could play backup quarterback David Fales over Jay Cutler against Buffalo Bills

Miami Dolphins could play backup quarterback David Fales over Jay Cutler against Buffalo Bills

This is an interesting development. The Miami Dolphins have been eliminated from the 2017 NFL playoff race and with that in mind, could take a turn toward the future on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Dolphins coach Adam Gase has been preparing backup quarterback David Fales to play significant snaps on Sunday, replacing Jay Cutler. “[Fales] got first-team repetitions in practice this week and Gase is preparing Fales to play,” writes Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero. “The final decision whether to use Fales is apparently not yet made because, and ultimately, the game will...

Miami Dolphins claim former Buffalo Bills safety Trae Elston off waivers

Miami Dolphins claim former Buffalo Bills safety Trae Elston off waivers

It’s not just for info. The special teamer could play Sunday. Trae Elston suited up for the Buffalo Bills against the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago. He played eight special teams snaps but didn’t record a statistic. After being released by the Bills this week, Elston was claimed off waivers by the Dolphins who could use him against his former team this week. This isn’t a Belichick-ian move to garner information about the upcoming opponent. Miami’s corresponding roster move was placing their special teams captain and sometimes-safety Michael Thomas on injured reserve. Elston hasn’t...

The Bills will need some help from around the league, but most importantly, Buffalo has to win. In order to have a shot at victory, they’ll have to keep an eye on these five Dolphins.

Five Buffalo Bills to watch against the Miami Dolphins

The Bills need some help to make the playoffs, but first they have to take care of business in Miami With a Baltimore Ravens’ loss or losses by both the Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans, the Buffalo Bills can make the playoffs for the first time in 17 years. First, they have to win their regular season finale against division rival, the Miami Dolphins. These players can make or break the game, and potentially the 2017 NFL season, for the Bills. QB Tyrod Taylor In Week 15, Taylor had a decent day through the air against the Dolphins at home. He only completed 58 percent of his...

Video: What the Buffalo Bills need to do to beat the Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are good at home. In the final week of the 2017 regular season, the Buffalo Bills will face off against division foe Miami Dolphins. The Bills desperately need a road win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Working against the Bills is a Dolphins team that is much better at home than they are on the road. Working in their favor is the success the Bills had against the Dolphins earlier this season and the fact that the Dolphins have little to play for and are led by apathetic Jay Cutler.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor enjoys success against the Miami Dolphins

Taylor has thrown nine touchdowns compared to zero interceptions over last five games vs. Miami When it comes to having success against one team, Buffalo Bills (8-7) starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor seems to save his best for Sunday’s opponent: the Miami Dolphins (6-9). Taylor earned the Bills starting job in 2015 and has squared off against the Dolphins five times. While the Bills have defeated the Dolphins in three of those five meetings, one constant in every matchup has been the stellar play of Taylor. In five career games against the Dolphins as Buffalo’s starter, Taylor has...
