Miami morning take: Respecting the Bills

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:

  • Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post reports the Dolphins have a healthy respect for the Buffalo Bills.

Morning take: Buffalo beat Miami in Week 7, so there is no reason to overlook the Bills. This is a game the Dolphins must win if they are true playoff contenders.

Morning take: The Bills registered only two sacks in the first meeting, but both came in the fourth quarter. Miami’s pass protection will be huge in this game.

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about the success of the Dolphins’ two-minute offense.

Morning take: Many NFL games are won and lost in the final minutes of halves and games. The Dolphins are winning those battles lately.

  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have some luck with Bills quarterback EJ Manuel’s knee injury.

Morning take: Thad Lewis gets another chance to ruin Miami’s season. If the Dolphins lose to Lewis twice in the same year, they don’t deserve to make the playoffs.
