The march towards Glendale, Arizona begins today. For the Buffalo Bills, the first speed bump in the journey is a long-time foe. Bills Mafia and the Miami Dolphins have battled one another long before most of us knew what football was. They’ll continue to be at odds until long after we’ve gone to that tailgate party in Heaven. This time around, the stakes are higher than normal.
January 15th’s Super Wild Card Weekend matchup will be the 119th meeting between these proud franchises. One team is a lot more healthy than the other, and that’s evident with the 13.5-point spread that FanDuel gives this one.
Here’s a look at the inactives lists for both the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins.
Buffalo and Miami released their inactive lists 90 minutes ahead of kickoff. We’ve known that Tua Tagovailoa would miss this one for a while. Here’s a full list of Bills that will miss this one.
- Isaiah McKenzie, wide receiver
- Christian Benford, cornerback
- Ike Boettger, offensive lineman
- Jordan Phillips, defensive tackle
- Jared Mayden, safety
- Baylon Spector, linebacker
- Tommy Sweeney, tight end
The Fins released their final inactives report ahead of the Wild Card Round as well.
- Liam Eichenberg, offensive guard
- Raheem Mostert, running back
- Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback
- Noah Igbinoghene, cornerback
- Kendall Lamm, offensive tackle
- Brandon Shell, offensive tackle
- Tanner Conner, tight end
The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff on CBS. Damar Hamlin will be in attendance. We expect a phenomenal game by Josh Allen, all three phases of the Bills, and a Buffalo victory. Then, it’s on to another week and the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs.
