Buffalo Bills (6-6) vs Miami Dolphins (7-5)
Sunday December 7, 2008 4:05 PM EST
Rogers Centre - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Hey Bills fans, are you ready for some good news? Well when the Bills take on the Miami Dolphins this Sunday, they will be doing so in the Rogers Centre, a place where the Bills are currently UNDEFEATED. That's right Bills fans, the Bills have never lost when playing a game in the Rogers Centre. I know what you are all saying: "That was a pre-season game and the Steelers took out all of their offensive starters after two series." You're right that was a pre-season game, and yes, the Steelers did take out all of their good players early, but that doesn't change the fact that the Bills have never tasted defeat in Toronto. So let's keep that mojo working. If the Bills have been eliminated from the playoffs, I want to take the AFC East opponents with us, and that starts with the Fish this Sunday.
On October 22 I recapped the last 3 years worth of Bills vs Dolphins match-ups. If you are interested in checking that out again, here it is.
October 26, 2008: Dolphins 25, Bills 16
After Anthony Fasano caught a 2-yard TD pass from Chad Pennington to put the Fish up 7-0 early, the Bills come roaring back, paced by 3 Rian Lindell field goals (try not to laugh in disgust) and a 8-yard Marshawn Lynch TD run, putting the Bills on top 16-7 early in the third quarter. The Dolphins then scored 18 unanswered points. 3 Dan Carpenter field goals, a safety by the Dolphin defense, and a 3-yard Ricky Williams TD run accounted for the Dolphin scoring. Sloppy play in the form of fumbles and an interception ended any chance the Bills had of making a comeback. Lee Evans had a nice game for the Bills, with 7 catches for 116 yards, but Ted Ginn had a better day. Brian's unhappy recap.
August 14, 2008: Bills 24, Steelers 21 (pre-season)
The first ever Bills in Toronto game deserves a little love here as well. Robert Royal had two TD catches less then 5 minutes apart, and Leodis McKelvin returned a kickoff 95 yards for a TD to give the Bills the win in a game which they dominated. Two big plays - a 40-yard TD toss from Ben Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes, and a 47 yard TD run by Dennis Dixon - kept the Steelers close. Brian's very happy recap.
I know that everyone is down and that the playoffs are all but gone, but let's see the Bills salvage some pride and head up to Toronto and stomp the Fish.
