Game 3…The Dolphins host the Bills
The Dolphins host the Bills Sunday in a late afternoon home opening game. Both teams are 1-1 which means the team that loses will fall to last place in the AFC East with the hated Patriots and Jets both at 2-0 after week 2. How depressing is that thought? There was such hope and anticipation for this season and even though this is only week 3 it’s a pivotal game. Will the Dolphins wake up and play the type of game we have expected? Or will the fans wake up to realize once again we are just a mediocre team with a long season ahead?
Looking at the injury report doesn’t help, several key players are banged up and reportedly Branden Albert and Dion Sims are out for the game.
Richie Incognito is returning to town along with the Bills and their new coach Rex Ryan. The Bills also have LeSean McCoy at running back and receivers Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin, with McCoy and Harvin both listed as probable on the Bills injury report with hamstring and hip injuries respectively. Our former kicker Dan Carpenter also is listed as probable with an abdominal injury. Questionable is receiver Marcus Easley and LB Tony Steward. Out for the game is safety Aaron Williams and receiver Marquise Goodwin.
I’d like to imagine we will play a good game, we win, the Bills drop to last place, both the Jets and Pats lose and we are in a three way(calm down FFR) tie for 1st place. Not likely to happen, but a win would go a long way to restoring some credibility and confidence in this team.
