Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins were two yards shy of picking up win number one under first-year leader Brian Flores last Sunday vs. the Washington Redskins at Hard Rock Stadium. After replacing a struggling Josh Rosen, who threw two interceptions, Fitzpatrick found DeVante Parker in the endzone with six seconds remaining, cutting Washington’s lead to 17-16.
Electing to try a two-point conversion, Fitzpatrick’s intended target, Kenyan Drake, dropped a bubble screen pass, keeping Miami winless through six weeks of play. Now they are going to try again against Buffalo, with the players hoping that they can finally put a one in the wins column.

3 Players to Watch
1. Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick: Brian Flores announced earlier this week Fitzpatrick, who was a member of the Bills from 2009-2012, will get the nod under center Sunday. Fitzpatrick was Miami’s starter Week 1 vs. Baltimore and Week 2 vs. New England, before Rosen took command at the position Week 3, Week 4 and Week 6.
2. Bills QB Josh Allen: Surprisingly, Allen has thrown more interceptions (7) than touchdowns (5). Allen was effective on the ground during the two meetings last season against the Dolphins.
3. Bills RB Frank Gore: A 36-year-old Frank Gore is still a dangerous player. The veteran running back should have an explosive outing Sunday against a weak Miami defensive unit that allows nearly 170 rushing yards per contest.
