Now this NFL live stream marks just the fifth time in the last 40 seasons two teams meet after each enjoyed a 30-point blow out.

The way the Dolphins improved to 3-0 was truly remarkable. The big number of course is 70, but the way they got there was even more impressive. Everyone had a hand in it. Tua Tagovailoa threw four touchdown passes to three different receivers. Running backs De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert combined for eight touchdowns. Even the backup quarterback Mike White came off the bench to throw a 68-yard touchdown pass. To help all that, the defense forced three turnovers. 

Head Coach Mike McDaniel has the Dolphins playing some of the best football in recent memory. Last week’s performance was just the 4th time in history a team scored 70, and their 726 yards of total offense was the 2nd most ever. They are now the last undefeated team in the AFC and one of just three unbeaten teams in the NFL. Philadelphia and San Francisco have equal records. 

Despite all that offense, Miami was without wide receiver Jaylen Waddle against Denver. He missed the game with a concussion but did practice this week. He is expected to be ready to go against the Bills. 

Since falling to the Jets on opening night, Buffalo (2-1) has put together two statement games together. They rolled the Raiders 38-10 in week 2, then enjoyed their 34-point road win over the Commanders. 

Everything has been working for the Bills. Quarterback Josh Allen has thrown for four touchdowns over the last two games while rushing for another. Wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis have found their way. Diggs is coming off an eight-catch 111-yard performance against the Commanders, while Davis had his breakout game against the Raiders with six catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile running back James Cook has risen to the third leading rusher in the NFL, racking up 267 yards on the season.  

Defensively, the Bills should prove to be slightly more difficult for the Dolphins than the Broncos. Tua and company will head into Buffalo to face the league’s second-best defense in scoring, yards and sacks on the season and third in takeaways. 

Draft Kings has the Bills as 2.5-point favorites against the Dolphins, with the highest over/under of the week set at 53. Tua is 0-3 in his career in Buffalo.
