Tonight, we've got a snow game for the Dolphins vs Bills live stream, according to the forecasts. Miami took their first matchup of the season, surviving the now famous “Butt Punt” to beat the Bills, 21-19 in Week 3. Now Buffalo will look for revenge in this NFL live stream

The Bills were just not meant to win that Week 3 matchup in Miami. In the final two minutes, they allowed a potential game winning 17-play drive to stall at the 2-yard line, benefited from Miami punter Thomas Morstead punting a ball off teammate Tent Sherfield backside and out of bounds for a safety and then just as they were getting to the edge of field goal range for an attempt at a game-winning kick, they failed to spike the ball in time. The clock hit zero and the Dolphins won, 21-19.

The Bills have rebounded nicely after that defeat. They are in first place in the AFC East with a 10-3 record and enjoying a two game lead on the Dolphins. Josh Allen and company are now going for their fifth straight win and third straight against a divisional opponent.

Last week the Bills beat the Jets 20-12. Allen was in on both touchdowns, throwing for one and running for another. Allen threw for just 147 yards on 16-of-27 passing and ran for 47 yards on 10 carries. He led his team in both categories. Allen is 7-2 against the Dolphins in his career.

The Dolphins (8-5) have hit a bit of a wall over the last two weeks. After going 8-0 in games started and finished with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback, the Dolphins have now dropped two straight, both with Tua, both on the road.

One constant for Miami’s offense has been the play of wide receiver Tyreek Hill, but he suffered an ankle injury against the Chargers but will be "a go" for tonight. Hill leads the NFL with 100 receptions and is second to Justin Jefferson (MIN) with 1,460 receiving yards.

This game is the third and final leg of the Dolphins’ three-game road trip. Tagovailoa is coming off one of his roughest starts in his young career. In last week’s 23-17 loss to the Chargers, the Miami signal caller completed just 10-of-his-28 passes for a career worst 35.7% completion percentage.

The Action Network has the Bills as 7-point favorites against the Dolphins.

Dolphins vs Bills live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Dolphins vs Bills live stream is going to be broadcast on the NFL Network, which is available with most cable packages and on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV.  It's in Fubo's $69.99 package and the $40 per month Sling Blue.

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

The game starts at 8:15 p.m. ET / 5:15 p.m. PT tonight (Dec. 17). 

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add-on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $55 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $70 per month.
