As we mentioned, the Fins will be taking the field for the last time at Sun Life Stadium in 2012 when the Bills come into town this weekend. This won’t be the first time this season these two teams have faced off this season; just over a month ago, on Nov. 15, Miami fell in Buffalo, 19-4. As the score indicates, Miami simply could not generate much of anything all day on the offensive side of the ball, gaining only a total of 184 yards of offense while going 3-for-10 on third down attempts. The defense, conversely, didn’t help the offensive woes, giving up 100+ rushing yards as Buffalo’s ground game doubled up on Miami’s running backs, outgaining them 120-60. The Fins also were prone to turnovers in the contest, committing three total – two interceptions thrown by Ryan Tannehill and a fumble by Brian Hartline, while Buffalo didn’t turn the ball over once.
Despite the Bills’ valiant defensive efforts in the first meeting this season between these two teams, Buffalo’s defense hasn’t been as sharp since that Nov. 15 contest, giving up a total of 103 points in the four games since, including 50 points last week at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. Overall, the Bills are giving up 28.7 points per game, which is tied for the most in the NFL. And while the Bills are probably wishing they could forget the events of last weekend, the Fins are hoping to get a replay of a game in which they won in convincing fashion. While taking down the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 24-3, Ryan Tannehill had what was probably his best outing of the season (22-of-28 for 220 yards, 2 TDS) while Reggie Bush also reached the 100+ yard mark for the second time this season.
Now, the Fins will be hoping to redeem themselves – and if they want any hope whatsoever of a playoff spot (though far-fetched) or a .500 record, they need to first secure this victory.
