The Buffalo Bills have won five of their past six games against the Dolphins and travel to Miami in Week 2 looking to extend the stretch of dominance over their AFC East rivals.

Buffalo (1-0) quarterback Josh Allen, despite losing two fumbles, threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions in last week's 27-17 win over the New York Jets. The third-year QB finished 33 for 46 while also rushing for 57 yards and a touchdown.

"It has to be a healthy balance every week (between the run and pass) and that's something we always take seriously," Bills coach Sean McDermott said.

In two wins over the Dolphins last season, Allen threw for a combined 458 yards and five touchdowns without an interception while rushing for 88 yards and a touchdown.

The Dolphins (0-1) had trouble containing another dual-threat quarterback last week in a 21-11 loss to New England, giving up 230 yards combined and two rushing touchdowns to Cam Newton. Miami also yielded 217 rushing yards in the game.

Miami is hoping for an impact game from pass rusher Shaq Lawson, who recorded 16.5 sacks over the past four seasons with Buffalo, as well as end Emmanuel Ogbah, cornerback Byron Jones and linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts.

Dolphins coach Brian Flores believes the Bills present an even greater challenge due to their depth of talented receivers, which could be tested if John Brown can't play Sunday. Brown missed practice Wednesday with a foot injury.

Stefon Diggs caught eight passes for 86 yards in his Buffalo debut, but Brown still had the most targets (10) and finished with 70 yards on six catches and a touchdown. Brown totaled 14 catches for 220 yards and three touchdowns in last year's two games against Miami, including a nine-catch, 137-yard, two-touchdown performance at Hard Rock Stadium.

"When you've got two outstanding receivers on the perimeter, it's hard to load up on the run game," Flores said. "They do a good job really in all areas -- the tight ends, the backs, the scheme. I don't think it will be just all run, or quarterback runs or all pass."

The Dolphins have two familiar faces to the Bills in starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey -- Buffalo's head coach from 2010-2012.

Fitzpatrick, who started 53 games for the Bills from 2009-12, threw three interceptions and no touchdowns in Week 1, prompting speculation as to when the Dolphins might turn to rookie Tua Tagovailoa.

"I think he never really got in a great rhythm," Dolphins quarterbacks coach Robby Brown said. "He had some good things that he did really well. We have some things that we can improve upon. That's the way it is every game, but we just need to try to get in a rhythm and get it going."

The Dolphins may be without receiver DeVante Parker, who injured his hamstring in the third quarter last week and was limited in practice Wednesday. Also, Roberts was placed in concussion protocol this week.

Safety Clayton Fejedelem (pectoral), receiver Jakeem Grant (calf), cornerbacks Jones (Achilles) and Xavien Howard (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday.

For Buffalo, linebackers Matt Milano (hamstring), Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and Del'Shawn Phillips (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday. Tyrel Dodson (neck) and quarterback Jake Fromm (non-injury) were limited.

"It sounds like they're both (Milano and Edmunds) going to be back, hopefully for this ballgame, but if we don't get both, hopefully we'll get one back because they are vitally important to the success of our defense," Buffalo defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said.

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins

Quarterback Josh Allen put together a career-best passing game to help the visiting Buffalo Bills continue their recent dominance of the Miami Dolphins with a 31-28 victory on Sunday.

Allen set career-highs for touchdown passes (four), passing yards (417) and passer rating (147.0) while completing 24 of 35 attempts as the Bills beat Miami for the fifth time in their past six meetings.

Allen's final two touchdown tosses helped the Bills (2-0) come back after the Dolphins (0-2) took a brief 20-17 lead with 10:11 remaining in the fourth quarter on a 2-yard touchdown run by Jordan Howard.

Allen anchored a 7-play, 75-yard touchdown drive as Buffalo reclaimed the lead on his 6-yard touchdown pass to Gabriel Davis with 5:55 left.

After the Bills' defense held on the ensuing possession, Allen found John Brown open down the middle of the field for a 46-yard touchdown that put the game out of reach.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick played much better than last week's three-interception game against New England, but it wasn't enough. Fitzpatrick completed 31 of 47 passes for 328 yards and threw two touchdown passes including an 8-yarder to Mike Gesicki with 49 seconds left that was followed by a two-point pass to Preston Williams.

The Bills, however, recovered the onside kick.

Allen took to the air more than usual, rushing for only 18 yards on four carries.

The Dolphins' secondary had trouble containing the Bills' deep receiving core, especially without cornerback Byron Jones, who left the game early in the first quarter with a groin injury and did not return.

Stefon Diggs paced the group, finishing with eight catches for 153 yards, and he hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Allen in the second quarter to give the Bills a 14-7 lead.

Allen completed 15 of 22 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns and a 136.4 passer rating in the first half as the Bills outgained the Dolphins in total yards 342-165 for the first two quarters.

And yet the Dolphins kept it close and flipped the script in the third quarter, outgaining Buffalo 132-28.

The game was delayed 36 minutes with 14:30 left in the third quarter due to lightning in the area.

On the injury front, Buffalo lost tight end Dawson Knox in the third quarter when he suffered a concussion.
