Two of the best offenses in the NFL face off in week 3, as the Buffalo Bills prepare to take on the Miami Dolphins. The Bills, with a 2-0 record, have dominated every team they’ve faced this season. They started the season with a huge win over the Los Angeles Rams, then followed it up in week 2. Is there any team out there that can slow down Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills?

The Miami Dolphins might be the team that can stop the Bills in their tracks. Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill are off to a fast start, going 2-0 to start the season. Their wins haven’t been as dominant as the Bills’ have, but they’re definitely doing well. Last week, the Dolphins rallied back to beat the Baltimore Ravens 42-38. The Bills, however, are a much tougher test than Baltimore.

Bills vs. Dolphins Preview, Trends and Stats

At the moment, there is one team that is dominating the NFL and it’s Buffalo. Through two weeks, there hasn’t been a single shred of doubt that they’re the best in the league. They’re not only dominating teams offensively but they’re battering them on defense as well.

Leading the charge on offense is of course Josh Allen, who is having an MVP-caliber year. Allen has thrown for over 600 yards with seven touchdowns and only two interceptions. It’s as a team, however, that the Bills are shining. So far, they have an average of 413.5 yards per game.

Their defense has allowed an average of 8.5 points per game through the first two weeks. Ranking second in this category, they make it up by having the highest scoring offense in the NFL. Putting up an average of 36 points per game, it’s safe to say the Bills are unstoppable.

However, it takes the right team to really highlight another team's weaknesses. The Miami Dolphins did that to the Ravens secondary last week. Down 38-35 with only 2:18 left, the Dolphins drove down the field and scored a game-winning touchdown.

This team is pretty special and it’s evident that they’ve found the perfect primary receiver. Tyreek Hill has caught 19 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns. With Hill taking up a lot of attention, other receivers have the ability to get open, enhancing Miami’s offense.

Now, what we will say is that the Dolphins need to do more on defense. They allowed the Ravens to get a 28-7 lead on them by the end of the half last week. If they let the Bills do that, we don’t see a comeback in their future. Putting a lot of pressure on Josh Allen will help.

Bills vs. Dolphins Predictions

Although each of these teams is 2-0, this isn’t a very complicated pick for us. This game comes down to defense and the Dolphins allow an average of 22.5 points per game. Although the Bills might win, the question of covering the spread comes to mind. It’s a 5.5-point spread, which is slightly more than we’d like to take the Bills at.

The Dolphins have kept games pretty close this season, aside from their week 1 win. The Bills defense is good, but they haven’t faced another fast-paced offense. It’s a tough call but we’ll go with the Dolphins +5.5 in this one.

Final Score: 30-27 (Bills)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Miami Dolphins are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games.

2. The total has gone OVER in 10 of Miami's last 14 games against Buffalo.

3. Bills WR Gabriel Davis is questionable for Sunday’s game.

Best Bet: Miami Dolphins +5.5 (-110) and Over 52.5 (-110)

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins Recap SEP 19TH 2021

Josh Allen passed for 179 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Buffalo Bills to a 35-0 shutout of the host Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.

The Dolphins (1-1) lost quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the first quarter due to a rib injury. He was hit while trying to pass as defensive end AJ Epenesa beat Dolphins right tackle Jesse Davis on the play.

Tagovailoa completed 1 of 4 passes for 13 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions before leaving the game.

Devin Singletary rushed 13 times for 82 yards and one touchdown to lead Buffalo (1-1). Backup running back Zack Moss added a pair of late touchdown rushes.

Jacoby Brissett, who replaced Tagovailoa, completed 24 of 40 passes for 169 yards, no touchdowns and one pick.

Aside from Brissett's interception, the Dolphins made numerous mistakes, including lost fumbles by Jakeem Grant and rookie first-round pick Jaylen Waddle. In addition, the Dolphins turned the ball over on downs four times and were penalized nine times for 83 yards.

Buffalo scored on its first possession as Singletary broke off a 46-yard run.

On the ensuing possession, Miami went for it on fourth-and-2 at Buffalo's 48, but that's when Epenesa's unobstructed hit on Tagovailoa broke up the play.

Buffalo capitalized on the short field and drove 52 yards for a 14-0 lead. The money play was Allen's 5-yard TD throw to Stefon Diggs. Allen scrambled to his right before connecting with Diggs in the middle of the end zone.

The Bills took the second-half kickoff and drove 75 yards for a 21-0 lead. The drive was capped by Allen's 8-yard scoring strike to Dawson Knox.

After Miami turned the ball over on downs a third time, Buffalo needed to go just 41 yards to make it 28-0. Moss ran 7 yards to conclude the drive.

Moss added a 1-yard touchdown run with 7:45 left in the game.

It was the first time the Dolphins were shut out since a 43-0 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 2 of 2019.
