    Thursday Night Football - Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills
    By: John Morgan

    The Bills don't have a defense strong enough to rattle even a young quarterback, thanks in large part because their run defense is so bad. On the other hand is the combination of a young team facing adversity, playing on the road on a very short week, and...

    I guess we are rooting for Buffalo. The Pats have a big lead and tiebreaker on them. Although the Pats should win this division by several games, they still play the Dolphins twice.

    Rooting for Buffalo I'd imagine.

    Still would be much much happier if Baltimore, Houston, or Denver would drop a game this weekend. Been 0 for the last 6 or so on those ones, I think the last time any of them lost was when 2 of them (Bmore-Houston) played each other :mad:

    Should be called The AFC East Runner Up Bowl because thats exactly what the winner is likely to be at the end of the season.

    Dolphins have:

    Bills
    Seahawks
    Patriots
    49ers

    before catching a soft game against the Jaguars.


    Bills have:

    Dolphins
    Colts
    Jaguars
    Rams

    So, a Dolphins win would drop the Bills to 3-7 and essentially kill Buffalo's season, while still putting the Dolphins in a position to be underdogs 3 weeks in a row.

    A Bills win, meanwhile, would make them 4-6, and put them in position to be 7-6 going into that Seattle game, and keeping them around as a viable WC candidate heading into their last two weeks (Miami, NYJ).

    Looking at their schedules, I'm going to prefer a Dolphins win tonight, and probably a Bills win in the rematch.

    So to sum up, we root for the team Jets fans are rooting against? Not that it really matters to them at this point. Weird season: Mid-point division game with apparently zero meaning.

    Bills win is better as the Pats are going to be playing Miami twice and we don't want even a 1 % chance of them sneaking up on us.

    Easily rooting for the Bills.

    If the Dolphins lose, it can basically end their chances at the division. Bills are already done, as far as the AFC East goes. (3 games behind + swept by us)

    In the worst case scenario, Dolphins win this game, we lose to the Colts and then all of the sudden the Dolphins are 1 game behind by Sunday evening...

    The game has barely even started and the announcers are making excuses for Mario Williams because of his injury...:bricks:

    Maybe it's because opposing o-linemen are making him a non-factor? Damn I hate the injury excuse...

    Darius Byrd looked like an ant that was almost just squashed to bits and jolting in different directions
