Bills Playoffs: 3 most dangerous Dolphins players and their potential impact
By Ryan Heckman
Wildcard Weekend is about to be a whole lot of familiar to the Buffalo Bills and their fans. For the third time this season, the Bills will take on the Miami Dolphins.
The first two games between these teams were split in a couple of very close matchups, with the Dolphins winning the first match and Buffalo gaining revenge later on in the season.
One of the biggest differences in this games, from the first two, might be that the Dolphins could be without Tua Tagovailoa. If that’s the case, then this Dolphins offense will have to depend on their supporting cast more than normal.
Fortunately for Miami, they have some dangerous players on that side of the ball. These three players are ones the Bills know well from this season, but they’ll have to keep tabs on.
Dangerous Dolphins for the Bills to look out for: Raheem Mostert, RB
In their first matchup, Raheem Mostert only carried the ball eight times for 11 yards. But, later in the season when he became “the guy” for Miami, Mostert had himself a nice outing. In that second game, Mostert went for 136 yards on 17 carries and also caught a pass for 20 yards.
The one thing Mostert has, that Buffalo has to be careful with, is breakaway speed. He’s the type of back who, once he’s past the line of scrimmage and in the open field, he can take it all the way in the blink of an eye.
Even though Jeff Wilson got a lot of run this year, Mostert still stood out, rushing for 891 yards on 181 carries. His long run went for 67 yards, but just a couple of years ago he notched an 80-yarder. This guy can get loose in a hurry, and the Bills linebacking crew has to make sure he doesn’t get into the secondary — or else.
