It is a tough start to the season for both of these teams. The Buffalo Bills fell in Week 1 to the Pittsburgh Steelers and must now turn around and play a really talented Miami Dolphins team. As for the Dolphins, they escaped Week 1 with a win, but the football Gods were not smiling upon them when they presented the Dolphins with back-to-back divisional games to start the year. This should be viewed as one of the most exciting NFL betting matchups on the Week 2 slate.

It was a tough first game for the Bills. The offensive line was exposed, as the Steelers were able to generate pressure without blitzing. Because of this, they were able to drop more defenders, shutting down Josh Allen and the passing game. This clearly is the way to beat Buffalo, as they don’t have much running game to speak of. Defensively, they look improved from last season. Buffalo should have more of a pass rush this season and they did well shutting down the run last week. However, it’s no secret that their offensive is their strength, and it needs to get back on track quickly.
The Dolphins went into New England and escaped with a win, which is tough to do. However, it wasn’t an impressive showing. Tua Tagovailoa completed just 16/27 passes for 202 yards and both a touchdown and interception. The running game was alright, but not impressive. Defensively, they allowed rookie Mac Jones to complete 29/39 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown. They gave up a 100-yards rushing day as well. Fumbles are what cost the Patriots the game, and Miami cannot expect to be given these gifts every week.
