Billieve Podcast: "Squish the Fish 2" is a must-win for the Bills

If Buffalo wants to make the playoffs, realistically the Bills must win Sunday in South Beach

On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico get you ready for the Buffalo Bills’ (6-3) must-win game Sunday vs. the Miami Dolphins (2-7) in South Beach.

That’s right, Boccacino and D’Amico agree that this is a must-win game if the Bills want to remain in contention for a playoff berth.

Among the topics discussed:

  • Head coach Sean McDermott wants quarterback Josh Allen playing fearlessly. Is this the week we see Allen get the deep passing game going by taking more downfield shots against a depleted Dolphins’ secondary?
  • Getting Cole Beasley going with short and intermediate passes will be a key to the offense’s success.
  • One week after abandoning the ground game, the Bills would be wise to turn to Frank Gore and Devin Singletary against a run defense that surrenders almost 150 yards per game on the ground.
  • Can Dawson Knox eliminate the drops and take advantage of a favorable matchup vs. the Dolphins?
  • Defensively, our podcasters expect to see more from both defensive tackle Ed Oliver, who has been a scapegoat for the defense’s woes stopping the run, and cornerback Kevin Johnson, who should spell the struggling Levi Wallace.

Our podcasters also give their score predictions for the game as the Bills go for the season sweep of the Dolphins.
