When the Miami Dolphins take on the Buffalo Bills this Sunday in the playoffs, they will be without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Tua has yet to be cleared from the concussion protocol and Mike McDaniel will probably start Skylar Thompson this weekend. This brings back memories of 2016 when Ryan Tannehill was injured and Matt Moore had to start at quarterback. The Dolphins are going to need to play their best football, and then some, if they want to come away with an upset this weekend.

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