It's a slim hope for both teams, given they are fighting for second place in the AFC East Division, but Miami and Buffalo can still make the playoffs when they go head-to-head on Friday (AEST). 

Miami are looking to redeem themselves after a 29-10 defeat at the hands of Buffalo in Week 2 this season. The Dolphins were kept to 80 rushing yards in September, a far cry from a team who is seventh in the league for rushing yards (127.6). Prior to last week’s 20-16 loss to the Lions, the Dolphins were on a hot streak, winning three games in a row and making a run for the top of the AFC East Division . But an injury to running back Lamar Miller (shoulder), who has notched 528 yards off 110 carries for five touchdowns this season, was a huge blow for the home side. If they hope to be a contender for the Super Bowl Trophy this season, they need Miller fit.

The Bills have been a surprise packet this season. Given no chance to make it to the Super Bowl , or even to the playoffs , they have built their season on defence and sit two wins adrift of AFC East leaders, the New England Patriots . Ranked eighth in the league for rushing yards allowed (96.1), Buffalo has made it difficult for opponents to gain easy metres. The Bills are also one of the few teams who haven’t stuck with one quarterback, with both Kyle Orton and EJ Manuel sharing the spotlight throughout the season. Between them, they have recorded 2225 yards and 15 TD’s. 

The Bills are looking for a fourth straight victory against the Dolphins on Friday, as well as their third win in Miami from four attempts. If the Dolphin's offensive line fails to step up again, given they let quarterback Ryan Tannehill get sacked four times in September, the Bills might run away with this one.
