After losing to Kansas City just 4 days ago, the Buffalo Bills are now at risk of falling out of the wildcard race after leading the division earlier in the season. Now, they will have to travel to Miami to face a Dolphins team that is looking for revenge after a 29-10 drubbing at Ralph Wilson Stadium back in Week 2.

The Bills are banged up heading into this game with injuries on both sides of the ball, most notably being RB Fred Jackson, who is listed as “questionable” but sources are saying he is likely going to be out for this game. If Jackson is out, this means that Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will be getting the bulk of the carries, and you would think Dixon would be leaned on heavier due to Brown’s fumble problems last week.

Sammy Watkins is expected to play in this game and this will be our first chance to see Watkins in Primetime football. Watkins was held to only 4 catches for 27 yards last week, but he was still heavily targeted by Kyle Orton and figures to get more space against a Miami defense that he scorched for 117 yards and a touchdown in Week 2. Watkins is also a Florida native and will be looking to play well with friends and family watching on.
