Miami Dolphins have Jalen Ramsey back but no Xavien Howard

Similar to the Buffalo Bills, the Dolphins have a new addition to the secondary but also are missing a starter. In addition to Chubb, the Dolphins lost Xavien Howard to a foot injury against the Baltimore Ravens. While he hasn't been officially ruled out for this game, it seems unlikely that he will play.

While the Dolphins won't have Howard, they will have Jalen Ramsey for this game after he missed the first game due to an injury during training camp. Ramsey has been a big addition to the defense over the second half of the season and was named to the Pro Bowl.

In nine games this season, Ramsey has had five passes defended and three interceptions. While this will be Ramsey's first game against Josh Allen and the Bills this season, the two sides have a history. The Dolphins cornerback called Allen "trash" shortly after the Bills drafted him.

However, Josh Allen has won the battle between the two as he had a perfect passer rating and completed seven of eight pass attempts in 2022 when Ramsey was with the Los Angeles Rams.

The matchup between Ramsey and Stefon Diggs should be fun to watch in this game.
