1. Reggie Bush vs. Bills - Last season, Bush ran wild on the Bills in their second contest, totalling 203 yards and a touchdown. In the first game this season, the Bills held Bush to just 20 yards, despite the Bills being the 30th ranked rush defense in the league. Bush has to get going early today to get the Dolphins offense established and to take some of the pressure off of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

2. Dolphins Playoffs - The Dolphins need a ton of help to make the playoffs. Besides having to win today, the Dolphins need the Pittsburgh Steelers to beat the Cincinnati Bengals. Next week, Miami has to have both the Bengals and Steelers lose, and the Jets need to lose one of their last two games. It's unlikely, but it's fun to be able to have a playoff scenario this late in the season.
