Say what you will about the Buffalo Bills' playoff drought and the operation of the team for the past decade, but one thing the Bills have done very well of late is beat the Miami Dolphins at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Buffalo has reeled off five consecutive victories over their aquatic arch-rivals at home, with Miami last winning up north on December 21, 2003. They won that game 20-3.
Miami won a "road game" in 2008, but that contest took place at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
Buffalo outscored Miami 130-58 in those five contests, with the closest game being a 20-14 Bills victory in 2005. Bills teams coached by Mike Mularkey and Dick Jauron never lost to the Dolphins at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Four different Bills quarterbacks - Drew Bledsoe, J.P. Losman, Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick - have logged victories over the Dolphins in that time frame.
The 2010 NFL regular season is looming, and the much-hyped Dolphins travel to Western New York to take on the left-for-dead Bills in a Week 1 matchup. One thing is certain heading into that contest: the Dolphins have absolutely no reason to feel comfortable in the stadium they're about to play in.
