Key Week 2 matchups to watch

All-Pro quarterback Josh Allen has shined against the Dolphins so far in his NFL career, going 5-1 while directing Buffalo’s offense to an average of 39 points per game during a five-game winning streak vs. Miami. On Sunday, Allen will look to build upon his solid numbers against the Dolphins, which include accounting for 20 total touchdowns while throwing only four interceptions in six career matchups. Can Allen continue his dominance over the Fish? How will Buffalo’s secondary contain a dangerous group of Dolphins wide receivers? Will Buffalo’s pass rush make life miserable for Tua Tagovailoa? We discuss those questions, address how the Bills can revive their once-explosive offense, and offer up predictions.

Latest injury updates

Defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was a full practice participant on Friday, while wide receiver Gabriel Davis was limited. They are both questionable for the game with the Dolphins, as is defensive end Efe Obada. On the other sideline, Miami will be without wide receiver Will Fuller.
