Top 10 reasons why the Bills will bring the heat against Miami


10.  Defend our dirt

Don't let the snow mounds and artic chill in the air fool you, things are heating up in Buffalo. It's rivalry week and the Dolphins are coming to town. With a 5-2 record at New Era Field this season, the Bills are one of seven NFL teams with five or more wins at home. Securing a victory would keep the team alive in the AFC playoff race and give them a 6-2 record at home for the first time since 1999.

Relive memorable Bills versus Dolphins games throughout the years.

9. Former Bills & 'fins face off

When the Dolphins head north this weekend, they'll bring with them some familiar faces. Linebacker Kiko Alonso, tight end MarQueis Gray and tackle Sam Young, who each played for the Bills, will make their return to Orchard Park. On the Bills side, tight end Charles Clay and guard Richie Incognito both spent time on Miami's roster and will get a chance to square off with their former team.

8. It's all about the fans

It's no secret that Bills fans are the best in the NFL.

To thank fans for their unmatched support, the Bills will give away over 1,000 prizes during this week's game - including a pair of Super Bowl LII tickets -  in recognition of the team's annual Fan Appreciation Day! Buffalo's Week 15 game is presented by Zippo.

7. A tribute to 1960

As part of Fan Appreciation Day, the Bills will honor a group of over 150 Season Ticket Members, who have memberships dating back to the team's inaugural season in 1960, in a special pregame ceremony. Over the years, these diehard supporters have passed their love for the Bills onto their family members. In celebration of their commitment to the team, they will take the field prior to kick-off to share an unforgettable moment.

6. Snowfield advantage?

Even if you missed last week's game against the Colts, chances are you've since checked out photos and highlights to get a glimpse of the tundra that befell New Era Field. Battling their way to victory through historically snowy conditions, the Bills sent a message to future opponents. They won't go out without a fight – especially on their turf. Hyped up for another potentially snow-ridden contest at home, the Bills will look to use the elements to their advantage.

5. The InFredible Hulk in the house

Former Bill Fred Jackson, or should I say, the InFredible Hulk, is running his way back to Orchard Park this game day. One of the most iconic and beloved Bills players in recent history, "Fast Freddy", who spent the 2007-14 seasons lining Buffalo's backfield, will serve as the Leader of the Charge. A respected voice in the locker room and in the community throughout his career, Jackson will always have a home in Buffalo. To show his support for the team, Jackson will stand above the tunnel and welcome the squad to the field.  

4. Taylor takes the reins

Sidelined by injury in Week 14, Taylor will get the starting nod at signal caller against the Dolphins. Eager to get back in the huddle and help his team come away with a win, T2 is focused on preparing for a tough Miami defense.  

3. Kudos for Kyle

Captain, team motivator and locker room hype man, are just a few of the roles Kyle Williams has assumed during his Bills career. His dedication to his teammates is inspiring and so is his consistent play. Giving it his all each time he steps onto the field, the 12-year veteran defensive tackle has left his mark on the franchise and the League. A five-time Pro Bowler, Williams has tallied 42.5 sacks on his career, which is the most by any Bills defensive tackle. With one more game under his belt he will move into 11th place on the Bills all-time games played list. Hats off to you, Kyle!

2. Shady on his way to 10k

He's almost there. Just 39 rushing yards stand between Shady McCoy and the 10,000-yard mark. Coming off his best performance of the season, McCoy is ready to keep things rolling. While achieving the milestone would be sweet, the veteran back is more concerned with helping his team come away with the 'W.'
