The Miami Dolphins will finally meet with the Buffalo Bills in the 2017 season, playing them for the first time this year and the first of two meetings over a 14 day span. The Bills are currently ahead of the Dolphins in the AFC East, but a Miami win today brings both teams to .500 on the season and pushes the Dolphins back into the second place position in the division. It would also keep Miami’s playoff hopes alive for this year.

The Dolphins beat the Bills in both meetings last year, with Jay Ajayi running for 200 yards in each game. Can the winning streak continue this season? Can Kenyan Drake reach 200 yards and make it three straight times a Dolphins running back has hit that milestone against the Bills?
