It is rivalry week for the Buffalo Bills as they are at home in Week 4 and will host the red hot Miami Dolphins. Most NFL fans will agree that this is arguably the game of the week between the two rivals, who faced off three times last season that ended with the Bills eliminating the Dolphins in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, winning 34-31.

Buffalo is 0-1 within the division after losing in Week 1 to the New York Jets, and they will be looking to make a statement win against this Dolphins squad that not only put 70 points against the Denver Broncos but is also averaging over 40 points a game.

Division games are chippy and this game is expected to be just that. Bills quarterback Josh Allen has only lost twice to the Dolphins in his career (2018 due to a dropped game-winning touchdown pass by Charles Clay, and in Miami last season when the Bills lost half of their team due to the sunshine heat). The Bills have owned this series up to this point, but they have never faced a Dolphins team like this since Allen was drafted. 

The Dolphins have speed and Tua Tagovailoa has been playing like an MVP candidate through the first month. The duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are always a threat, and Miami has developed a run attack led by Raheem Mostert. There is no doubt that the Dolphins will keep the Bills on the edge on Sunday. 

With that being said, let’s not forget that the Dolphins have to get through Buffalo. They are out to prove that they are ready to take over the AFC East, but the Bills will be looking to set them back and continue to take command of the division. 

Here are the three key matchups for the Week 4 matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins.
