Bills vs. Dolphins

Who Has the Edge?

Key Matchups

Josh Allen vs. Tua Tagovailoa

>> Josh Allen is 7-1 vs. Miami with the lone loss coming in his first game vs. the Dolphins. His QB rating is over 100 in 6 of his games vs. Miami. Tua is 0-3 vs. Buffalo and his highest QB rating is 62.5 vs. the Bills.

>> They are both top 5 in yds, tds, and qb rating through 2 games

Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle vs. Micah Hyde, Jordan Poyer and backup CBs

>> With Tre’Davious White still out and Dane Johnson suffering an injury vs. Titans, Bills are likely to rely on rookies Elam and Benford and veteran Taron Johson at corner. With the deep threats that Hill and Waddle present, the experience and discipline of the safeties will be even more important.

>> Bills have only given up 3 passes over 20 yards through 2 games (all 3 to Cooper Kupp, longest 28). Hill has 5 and Waddle 3 already.

>> Hill and Waddle are Nos.1 and 3 in receiving yards through 2 games and have 5 TDs between them.

Stefon Diggs vs. Xavien Howard

>> Howard followed Rashod Bateman last week, so we expect him to follow Diggs.

>> Diggs is No. 2 in receiving yards through 2 games with 270 yards and leads with 4 TDs.

>> Howard has the third-most points saved by corners over the last two seasons — Most in 2020 (SIS)

Von Miller vs. Terron Armstead

>> Armstead, 3-time Pro Bowler (2018-20) vs. Miller, 8-time Pro Bowler

>> Miller will line up on both sides but appears to take more snaps vs the LT

>> Both are aging players, but Armstead has shown more slippage.
