Top 10 reasons to get into the spirit for Bills-Dolphins


10. Christmas Eve at the Cap

Prepare for a memorable Christmas Eve matchup at New Era Field this Saturday as the Bills take on the Dolphins. Check out the holiday-themed activities available this game day!

9. Former Bills return to New Era Field

Dolphins DE Mario Williams, TE MarQueis Gray, S Bacarri Rambo, T Sam Young, TE Dominique Jones and linebacker Kiko Alonso all spent time on Buffalo's roster.  Flying north to take on their former teammates this weekend, they're no strangers to New Era Field. 

8. Going for five

A home game in December is exactly the type of scenario that the Bills want – especially against the playoff contender Dolphins. Buffalo has won the last four at home against Miami and is ready to make it five.

7. Sack attack

Due to injury, Miami will be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill this weekend. Instead the Bills will face backup QB Matt Moore. Expect the Bills pass rush to bring the heat against the veteran signal caller and tack on a few more sacks to Buffalo's already 38.0 on the season.

6. Ready for a rematch

Well, it goes without saying that the Bills are eager to redeem themselves from their loss to Adam Gase's squad back in Week 7. Buffalo has a handful of difference makers back in the fold in WR Sammy Watkins, WR Robert Woods and DT Marcell Dareus.


5. Pro Bowlers present

After performing at a high level all season, it came as no surprise that linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and LeSean McCoy were selected to represent the Bills in the 2017 Pro Bowl. Expect both veterans to make their presence known when the Dolphins roll into town.

4. Stuff the run

The first time the Bills and Dolphins met, running back Jay Ajayi managed to dismantle Buffalo's run defense, finishing the game with 214 yards on the ground. With Mr. Big Stuff in the lineup for the rematch, Ajayi will have his work cut out for him.

3. Clay nation

Bills tight end Charles Clay put on quite the performance in Buffalo's 33-13 win over Cleveland. With seven receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown, Clay helped propel the team to victory. This week in a must-win contest against AFC East foe Miami, look for Clay to make some key plays.

2. Kyle Williams suits up for his 150th game

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams has proven himself an impact player for Buffalo for 11 seasons. His commitment, leadership ability and football expertise are second to none. This Saturday, Williams will reach a milestone 150 games in his illustrious career.

1. Squish the fish

It's Miami. In December. At home. Need I say more?
