On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast—the 100th in show history!—host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico get you ready for Sunday’s showdown between the Buffalo Bills (4-1) and Miami Dolphins (0-5).

At 4-1, the Bills are second place in the AFC East, and emerge from their bye week for the first of three straight home games. Among the topics covered:

  • The Bills are favored by 17 points, the first time the Bills have been such heavy favorites since the 1992 season, when Buffalo suffered a shocking loss to the New York Jets. Is Sunday’s game a trap game for the Bills? Is it possible for a Sean McDermott-coached team and the positive culture present at One Bills Drive to fall for a trap game?
  • What does the Bills offense need to do to get on track against a feeble Dolphins’ defense that is last in total yards allowed per game (439.8) and points allowed per game (180 in five games, 36 points per game)?
  • What can we expect from Josh Allen, and can he get the deep ball going vs. a porous Dolphins secondary?
  • Defensively, our podcasters expect the Bills to dominate a Miami offense that has been inept (league-low 42 points in five games, an average of 8.4 points per game).
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick gets to face his old team as the Dolphins ditched second-year quarterback Josh Rosen, who has struggled mightily, in favor of some FitzMagic. How can Buffalo take advantage of Fitzy’s penchant for throwing back-breaking interceptions?
  • They also expect Buffalo, led by Jerry Hughes, Ed Oliver and Jordan Phillips to get after a Miami offensive line that has allowed 23 sacks and 48 hits on the quarterback in 2019 to rank in the bottom five of the NFL.
