This Sunday, November 20, the Buffalo Bills continue their road trip when they visit the Miami Dolphins in an AFC East division rivalry game. Kickoff is set for 1:00 EST, and the game will be broadcast by CBS.
This is a game between two teams going in opposite directions. The Bills, at 5-4, are one game out of first place in the AFC East and have a two-game losing streak. The Dolphins are 2-7 and are in the midst of a two-game winning streak.
This game is in Miami, but don't think that the Dolphins have a huge home field advantage. Out of their last 14 home games, Miami's record is 2-12. Home field advantage? I don't think so. In 2011, the Dolphins are 1-3 at home and the Bills are 1-3 on the road, so something has to give.
The Dolphins did win their last home game, and they are definitely playing better football. They are actually reminding me very much of where the Bills were a year ago. They started out losing their first seven games, and after bottoming out are now learning how to win. They overwhelmed Kansas City on the road and hammered Washington, which is similar to the Bills results against those teams.
The Bills are coming out of a two-game funk on offense, and need this win to give them any kind of realistic hope at staying in the AFC East division race.
