Dolphins Player to Watch: Reggie Bush

The ‘Phins starting RB had a tough go against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10, rushing for just 21 yards on four attempts and catching one pass for eight yards. However, he didn’t sniff the field in the second half, as coach Joe Philbin yanked the former USC star for losing his second fumble in three weeks.

Bush is going to get a chance to redeem himself on Thursday, as will the entire team, following that 37-3 shellacking at the hands of the Titans. Considering the former Trojan ran for a career-high 203 yards and a TD on 25 attempts last year in Orchard Park, it wouldn’t be shocking to see a major turnaround from the back.


Bills Player to Watch: C.J. Spiller

With starting RB Fred Jackson out of the lineup with a concussion suffered against the New England Patriots at the tail end of a close Week 10 contest, C.J. Spiller will be called upon to shoulder the rushing load against Miami.

Spiller, who was looking like a breakout star in the early season, has cooled off considerably since the first few weeks of the 2012 campaign. However, he seemed to start picking things back up against NE, rushing for 70 yards on nine carries and hauling in four receptions for 61 yards.

If he gets the lion’s share of touches—and only Tashard Choice seems to be a viable candidate to steal any—it would be reasonable to expect a solid performance from the third-year man out of Clemson.


Prediction: Dolphins 24 – Bills 21

This AFC East battle is going to be a back and forth affair that will come right down to the wire on Thursday.

We are giving the edge to the ‘Phins because of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s seeming inability to take care of the ball in crunch time. He threw yet another game-clinching interception last week against the Pats, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the same thing happen against Miami.

It’s going to be yet another sloppy Thursday Night Football game between two teams on short rest, so lean towards the team that still has postseason hope and a more opportunistic defense.
