The Splash Zone 12/23/16: Previewing Saturday's Game Against The Bills

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins will face off against another AFC East opponent this week. The team will be on the road against the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins came away victorious the last time and the game was pretty edgy. The Bills are going to look to spoil the Dolphins playoff hopes because if Miami wins there is a big chance the team makes the playoffs. The Dolphins haven't won in Buffalo since 2011 and the quarterback to do that was none other than Matt Moore, who will be making his second start in place of the injured Ryan Tannehill.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
