The Buffalo Bills have a wide variety of talent on the offensive side of the ball and very few of them lack significant speed. The Miami Dolphins will have their hands full on Sunday when they have to go up against the likes of CJ Spiller, Fred Jackson, Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and others. The Dolphins are aware of the problems they pose and are doing their best to prepare for them.
“Yeah, they are fast. Their skills are very, very good. As you know, they have real strength in the backfield. Then they have guys on the perimeter that can run extremely well,” Joe Philbin said.
“They’ve got a real big target at tight end that is an easy guy to find in the middle of the field. They are going to pose some problems the way they run the ball and then the perimeter skill that they have. It will be a test for our defense.”
“There are fast players in this league almost every week. They are fast, we give them their due, but we’ve got to play football and play our style of defense, which we will, and see how we match up.”
It would be ideal for the Dolphins to focus on stopping the run and forcing Bills quarterback EJ Manuel to beat them by throwing the ball. Manuel has struggled since he came into the NFL and it would seem like a recipe for success.
