The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins clash in a Week 8 AFC East divisional matchup with both teams looking to rebound from disappointing losses in Week 7. The Bills had a rough ending in Monday’s contest against the Titans, where they opted to go for a fourth down instead of kicking a field goal to force overtime. The Dolphins gave up a late drive to the Falcons to lose on a field goal.

The Bills are seen as the class of the AFC after a convincing performance over the Chiefs. While that thought might not have changed much after the loss to Tennessee, Buffalo needs to bounce back big here. Josh Allen is having an MVP-caliber season, continuing his rise as one of the league’s top quarterbacks.

The Dolphins appear to be in disarray. There’s rumors of Deshaun Watson trades, Brian Flores’ job security and a general aura of uncertainty. Tua Tagovailoa had a massive outing against the Falcons but the defense didn’t hold up late. The Dolphins have not put together a complete performance yet and it’s unlikely to happen against the Bills.
