What to Know

The Miami Dolphins haven't won a game against the Buffalo Bills since Dec. 2 of 2018, but they'll be looking to end the drought Sunday. The Dolphins are on the road again Sunday and play against Buffalo at 1 p.m. ET Jan. 3 at Bills Stadium. Miami has a defense that allows only 18.8 points per game, so Buffalo's offense will have their work cut out for them.

Miami can thank their lucky stars for their victory over the Las Vegas Raiders last week. The final score was a hard-fought 26-25. Having forecasted a close win for Miami, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Among those leading the charge for them was RB Myles Gaskin, who caught five passes for two TDs and 82 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Gaskin's 59-yard TD reception down the right side of the field in the fourth quarter.

Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 14. K Jason Sanders delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.

Meanwhile, when you finish with 273 more yards than your opponent like the Bills did last Monday, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They ended the year with a bang, routing the New England Patriots 38-9. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Buffalo had established a 31-9 advantage. QB Josh Allen and WR Stefon Diggs were among the main playmakers for Buffalo as the former passed for four TDs and 320 yards on 36 attempts in addition to picking up 35 yards on the ground and the latter caught nine passes for three TDs and 145 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Diggs' 50-yard TD reception down the right side of the field in the second quarter.

The wins brought Miami up to 10-5 and Buffalo to 12-3. Miami is 6-3 after wins this season, the Bills 9-2.
