It's game day at Buffalo Rumblings! We'll keep this short and sweet: the Buffalo Bills are in Miami to take on our hated rival Dolphins, and a win today would - at least in my book - register as the Bills' most satisfying win of the season. Beating the Dolphins puts me in a better mood than beating any other team - and since the Bills have won 7 of the past 8 against this team, it's a feeling I'm not ready to give up.

But this game isn't going to be an easy one. In fact, it might be the team's toughest road test of the season to date - even tougher than their trip to Arizona, where they got blown out 41-17 by the Cardinals. Miami's a talented team with experience at the right spots, most notably quarterback. The Dolphins can play with any team in the league at Dolphins Stadium. It's going to take a well-rounded effort from all three phases for the Bills to beat the Dolphins today. I think it gets done, but I'm not putting money on it.
