If the Dolphins look tired on the field against Buffalo, it's because they didn't get any sleep on Saturday night. A fire alarm at the team hotel in Buffalo went off around 3:30 a.m. and 'freaked out' many of the people at the hotel, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Dolphins beat writer Andrew Abramson was staying at the hotel and reported that a lot of people had to evacuate the building and a loud fire truck showed up after the alarm went off. Fortunately, there was no fire. 

On a somewhat related note, no one at the hotel will be able to watch the game because it's blacked out in Buffalo. The Dolphins-Bills game is only the second game that's been blacked out in the NFL this season. 

The Dolphins can clinch a playoff spot in Buffalo on Sunday with a win over the Bills and losses by the Ravens (vs. Patriots) and Bengals (vs. Vikings).
