The NFL season is in full swing. And a classic, highly anticipated, AFC East matchup is set for Sunday, 1 p.m. EST in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Buffalo Bills travel south in Week 3 to battle for an early division lead against the undefeated Miami Dolphins.

Both the Bills and Miami Dolphins would love nothing more than to capture a head-to-head victory against a division foe. However, it won’t be easy sledding.

Buffalo’s injury report is as long as it’s been since Sean McDermott arrived. And the Dolphins will be without key pieces in its secondary, which could cause them hardship on the back end.

Injuries or not, this game will count in the standings. And there are plenty of reasons to be confident the Bills will pull out a victory in Week 3.

Tua Tagovailoa

Tua isn’t terrible. He’s limited, however. From top to bottom, his body of work is average. And he doesn’t possess any particular skill set that sets him apart from his peers throughout the league.

Nevertheless, he leads the league in passing, albeit with the help of receivers blessed with speed only given by God himself; he’s simply getting the ball to his play-makers, operating as a point guard.

It won’t be the same for Tua come Sunday. Buffalo’s defensive unit is tops in the league. They’ve held more talented quarterbacks, just this season, to less than 400 passing yards through two games while giving up just 8.5 points per game.

Granted, the Bills will be without key pieces in its defensive backfield. All-Pro safety, Micah Hyde, who has played an intricate role in Buffalo’s secondary, Tre’Davious White who is on the PUP list, and Dane Jackson, who has performed exceptionally well in his opportunities, have all been ruled out for Sunday’s contest.

It won’t matter though. The Bills can affect the quarterback by rushing only four defenders. And with muddy passing lanes, Von Miller screaming off the edge, and heavy amounts of pressure, Tua will have a rough time distributing the football within Miami’s game plan.
