Last week: Miami forgot about its game with Tennessee, Buffalo lost to New England in a close game.
Series history: Miami 56-39-1
Current streak: Miami 2 wins
Trends: Miami has won 6 of the last 8; Buffalo 7 of 8 prior to that.
Last meeting: The Dolphins posted a 30-23 victory in Buffalo on Dec. 18, 2011. Matt Moore threw for two TDs and Reggie Bush busted off a 76-yard TD gallop as Miami led 30-13 in the fourth quarter. The Bills were within seven with 1:26 left but failed to recover an onside kick, which effectively ended the game.
TNF isn't a marquee game. Everyone gets to play once, as BWC said.
NFL Network really couldn't care about the ratings of the games. They simply need the content of having games to get cable providers to pony up. It's subscriber fees they are after, not advertising dollars.
This is a tough one to pick. I'm picking the Bills based on the short turnaround & having to go on the road. But bad as Miami looked last week, they will likely be determined not to have a repeat performance. (as the Titans did after that abomination against Chicago)
