Bills vs. Dolphins preview:

The Bills are coming off a 45-16 shellacking of the hapless 49ers, a game in which LeSean McCoy took full advantage of the revolving-door-defense and ran for 140 yards and three touchdowns on just 19 carries. It's no surprise, then, that Buffalo is first in the NFL in rushing yards per game. After starting 0-2, the Bills have won four straight and are on absolute fire.

The Dolphins took full advantage of Ben Roethlisberger's injury and somehow managed to upset the Steelers, 30-15. Jay Ajayi ran for a mind-numbing 204 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries, while Ryan Tannehill looked competent for the first time this season, going 24-of-32 for 252 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Could this be the recipe for success for Miami?

The Bills have won five of the last six against the Dolphins, the most recent match-up being a 33-17 victory for Buffalo.

Bills vs. Dolphins prediction:

The Bills are dominant on both sides of the ball, and with Miami allowing the most rushing yards per game in the NFL, I expect another sublime performance from Shady McCoy—something to the tune of 160 yards and pair of touchdowns. The Buffalo defense will pick off Tannehill at least twice, and will stifle the Dolphins' running game.
