Miami Dolphins will play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in Week 16 of the NFL 2013 regular season, with the Dolphins still in the hunt for a Wild Card spot. That means for Miami this is a must win game if they are to maintain their postseason hopes. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Dolphins come into this clash with an 8-6 record, which currently places them as 7th seeds in the AFC Conference. With the Baltimore Ravens ahead of them as 6th seeds and also with an 8-6 record, the Dolphins know they will have to win out their final two games to ensure they give themselves the maximum chance of overturning the Ravens' advantage.
Today they must take down the Bills, who are in the basement of the AFC East with a poor 5-9 record. However, they would love nothing better than to end the Dolphins' playoff hopes today by defeating them.
The Bills managed to snap their losing streak last week with a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. That 27-20 victory could give them some extra confidence for today's game and if they can keep things close through the first two quarters they may grow more in confidence that they can take down the Dolphins, who have been impressive this season.
Bills coach Doug Marrone announced Wednesday that the Bills will be starting Thad Lewis at quarterback for today's game, as rookie EJ Manuel is out with a knee injury.
Meanwhile the Dolphins come into this game on the back of three straight wins – the most impressive of which came last week against the New England Patriots. That 24-20 victory certainly turned some heads across the NFL and they will be hoping to carry the momentum from that win into the final two weeks of the regular season.
Cornerbacks Brent Grimes and Nolan Carroll suffered injuries in last week's win over the Patriots, however, both are expected to make it for today's game against the Bills.
