The Miami Dolphins (9-8) fly north to visit the Buffalo Bills (13-3) for the second time in less than a month in one of six wild card rematch contests this weekend.
The Dolphins are playing in the NFL postseason for the first time in six years after securing a spot into the postseason with a Week 18 win over the New York Jets while the Bills have been in the NFL playoffs every year dating back to 2019.
The Bills have proven to be Super Bowl contenders this season with quarterback Josh Allen leading the offense, dominating total yardage and points per game across the league.
The last time the two squads faced each other, the circumstances were a bit different. Since the Week 15 match up, which the Bills won 32-29, safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest.
Not to say the Dolphins can’t pull off the upset as they are one of the three teams to beat Buffalo this season. However, it hasn’t been easy for Miami as they’ve had three different quarterback starters in Teddy Bridgewater, Tua Tagovailoa and Skylar Thompson over the past three weeks. Sunday’s starter is expected to be Thompson.
