If the other team is blocking a punt and running it in for the touchdown, odds are, it's not your day. That was the case for the Bills last week in their 23-16 loss to the Steelers. Forced to go three-and-out early in the fourth quarter and trailing 13-10, the Bills lined-up for a punt. When the ball was snapped, the Steelers blocked the attempt, recovered the ball and ran it in for a 9-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Bills who led by 10 at the half, then trailed by 10 with 9:51 to go in the game.  

Bills quarterback Josh Allen, an MVP candidate last season, will be looking for a much better performance in Miami than he had in the season opener. Allen completed just 30-of-51 passes for 270 yards and one touchdown. The normally elusive Allen was also sacked 3 times in the loss. 

Allen will again have his work cut out for him in this game as the Dolphins defense is coming off a strong performance against the Patriots. Miami held New England to just one touchdown last week and then bent, but didn’t break allowing three field goals. Rookie wideout Jaylen Waddle’s first career touchdown reception early in the third quarter gave the Dolphins a 17-10 lead and Miami’s defense was able to hold off the Pats just enough for the 17-16 win.  

Dolphins veteran cornerback Xavien Howard, who led the NFL in interceptions last season, created a clutch game-sealing turnover last Sunday. With Miami leading by only a point, the Patriots drove to the Dolphins’ 11-yard line with 3:35 left in the game. Then Mac Jones handed the ball off to running back Damien Harris and that's when Howard went to work, stripping the ball from Harris and forcing the turnover. When the dust settled, Howard came up with the fumble, ending the Pats’ threat. 

The Bills are a 3.5-point favorite against the Dolphins. The over/under is 47.5.
