Miami Dolphins (1-6) at Buffalo Bills (4-2)

Sunday, October 31, 1PM ET

After their disappointing Week 6 loss, the Buffalo Bills need a bounce-back win in a big way. Luckily, they’re fresh coming off the bye and have one of the NFL’s worst teams coming to town. Defeating the Miami Dolphins shouldn’t prove too difficult for the Bills.

Josh Allen figures to have a field day against a Miami defense that can’t seem to differentiate up from down. They’ve struggled to create pressure all season long, which made life very difficult on their secondary. Allen could be in for another stellar performance based on what the Dolphins have to offer defensively.

With Tua Tagovailoa back under center, the Dolphins could muster some sort of offense. However, we also have to keep in mind they’ll be going up against a stingy Bills defense that likes to make quarterbacks uncomfortable. Miami will find the end zone at least a couple of times, but it won’t be enough.

The Bills get back on track with a confident win, while the Dolphins continue to flounder about. After dropping to 1-7 on the season, Miami is about ready to have a fork stuck in it.

Prediction: Bills win 33-17 | Spread: Bills (-13)
