The Buffalo Bills will head into Miami to take on the Dolphins whether they have a quarterback or not. A week after losing EJ Manuel to a knee injury, the Bills promoted Thad Lewis from the practice squad to start against the Cincinnati Bengals. Lewis played well, but suffered a foot injury with his status against Miami in question.
Matt Flynn was signed by Buffalo during the week, who could start against the Dolphins if needed. Dolphins tickets for this AFC East matchup are currently averaging $102 on the secondary market, 33% below the average price for 2013 home games at Sun Life Stadium and 25% below the average for Bills tickets on the road. The get-in price for the game is just $26, and with prices down 14% this week I’d expect those prices to continue to fall as game day approaches. Overall, this game is the 4th cheapest of the weekend around the NFL.
The Dolphins will enter this game at 3-2, but a disappointing 26-23 loss to the Baltimore Ravens sat with the team an extra week after having a bye during Week 6. Ryan Tannehill had another good game with 307 yards passing, his second 300+ yards game of the season, but the Bills defense will hope to slow him down this week. Safety Jairus Byrd started for the first time last week and, as one of the best safeties in the league, makes a big impact in the secondary. Byrd had five interceptions and four forced fumbles a season ago. The surprise of the Buffalo defense has been rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso. Alonso already has four interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble in his first six career games.
