For the first time since 2016, the Miami Dolphins will be playing in a playoff game. Unfortunately for them, they’ll be facing a very tough Buffalo Bills team and the Dolphins have a lengthy injury report. If you listened to anyone preview this game during the week, no one is giving the Dolphins a chance to win this game. If they had their starting quarterback, their chances to win would be higher. If the Dolphins want any hope of winning this game, the defense is going to have to play their best game of the season, which is a tough ask considering how banged up they are.
