AFC East Daily:
In a crucial divisional bout where neither team can afford a loss, Thursday's primetime matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins shouldn't disappoint. While Miami is looking to snap a two-game losing streak and rebound from an embarrassing loss at home against Tennessee, the Bills are home for only the second time in six games in trying to right the ship. (photo: Matt Britt, Flickr)Buffalo has lost five of six and is also down a key member of its offense, running back Fred Jackson, who's out with a concussion. The Bills will look to C.J. Spiller and Ryan Fitzpatrick to carry the offense. Miami will put its faith in rookie Ryan Tannehill, who's improved greatly since the preseason, and Reggie Bush, who's looking to regain his early-season form.DECIDING FACTORS:Spiller time. Buffalo's running back "controversy" has been put on hold for at least one week, and the Bills will put their run game almost exclusively into the hands of the lea...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The experts believed Miami Dolphins were going to have a poor run as there are no stars on their team. However, with Ryan Tannehill,
the quarter back on the team, they have been able to stay up there. A
week ago, he threw two touchdown passes and the team was able to turn
back continuous scoring threats from St. Louis. Miami won the game
despite the team was outgained 462...
GIVING HIM SOME LIP
Yes, yes he did. As the postgame interview with C.J. Spiller was wrapping up, Irvin was congratulating him and saying his goodbyes. Then for some reason, the hung and handshake weren’t enough. Irvin thought it appropriate to go in for the double kiss. By the way, the Bills won 19-14 and are now in second place in the AFC East. Filed under: Football, NFL, Video
Jerod Mayo fined $10,000 for hit on CJ Spiller. Brandon Spikes fined $25,000 for hit on Fitzpatrick.— Nick Underhill (@Nick_Underhill) November 16, 2012How stupid. Fitzpatrick was the one that caused Spikes to hit him in the head by tilting his head down. I've ranted enough on this. See below:Why I think Bills fans and players are hypocritesHow people are rushing to judgement on Spikes
As the Buffalo Bills held onto beat the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football, Bills running back C.J. Spiller was the star of the game with 91 total rushing yards.
During the NFL Network postgame, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michel Irvin was saying for goodbyes to CJ and well, this is what happened:

CJ Spiller is having a ridiculous year. He leads all eligible running backs in YPC by a yard and a half over Adrian Peterson, who is 2nd. Spiller is at 7.3. Peterson is at 5.8 He’s at 4.3 yards per carry after contact, which is about an average total yards per carry. Doug Martin is next at 3.7. He ranks 14th in the league in rushing yards despite...
Tonight was supposed to be a coming out party of sorts for C.J. Spiller. Many in the fantasy community were expecting 30 carries for 500 yards, 20 touchdowns, a signed autograph from Justin Bieber (why, fantasy community, why?) and for him to save burning orphans from space aliens…give or take. Truthfully, I used to be a part of the Spiller fanclub and rooted for him harder...
Nothing comes easily these days for the Miami Dolphins. The lone touchdown scored by their offense in the past 21/2 games was awarded only after a replay review.
The unit led by rookie Ryan Tannehill has stalled during a three-game losing streak, and so has the franchise's turnaround under first-year coach Joe Philbin.
"Obviously we need to make some improvements quickly...
Forget the teases, it is Know your enemy with PhinsPhocus.
1) If you were the Bills' defensive or offensive coordinator, how would you attack the Dolphins?
CJ Spiller, CJ Spiller then some more CJ Spiller. He is a special player and needs to get the ball (Editor's note: Tell that to Chan). Dolphins also tend to struggle against Tight ends so I would try and get Scott...
At the end of last month, the Miami Dolphins found themselves with a 4-3 overall record and right in the middle of the playoff discussion. Since the calender flipped from October to November, the Dolphins have lost three straight games and are slipping right out of the playoff discussion. Miami is suddenly having problems moving the football on offense and on defense, have allowed...
Nothing comes easily these days for the Miami Dolphins. The lone touchdown scored by their offense in the past 2½ games was awarded only after a replay review. The unit led by rookie Ryan Tannehill has stalled during a three-game losing streak, and so has the franchise's turnaround under first-year coach Joe Philbin.
Being realistic, the Buffalo Bills are done for the year. At 3-6 it’d take quite a turnaround to even compete for a Wildcard spot.
The Bills do face a weaker schedule for the next seven weeks, but to realistically compete they’d need to run the table.
Heading into Week 10, here are our True or False standings. In parentheses are last week’s records.

The Miami Dolphins were left shell shocked on Sunday in their 37-3 loss to the Titans. The Dolphins came out flat, sloppy, and looked like they wanted to be anywhere but on the football field. The good news for the Dolphins is that they don’t have to wait very long to get back on the field and right the wrongs that took place on Sunday. The Dolphins will be leaving Wednesday...
This week’s Water Cooler features QCS writers Mike Bundt, John Snyder, Mike Straw, Ryan Talbot and Brandon Hess.
Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Not the best result for the Bills over the weekend but I think we can all agree that we saw some progress out of the team. With the game in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hands, Buffalo just couldn’t finish the game off.
Should Bills fans be...
Your hopes and dreams are coming near a conclusion. Are you a fantasy football playoff team? Are you a spoiler? Do you really have no idea what you are?
If you read Grantland, you would have come across an interesting piece on the Bills that was equal parts inspiring, depressing and gut wrenching. Among the many topics that the story covers is how Buffalo’s youth is moving away from their affiliation with the Bills and rooting for other NFL teams.
That will happen with 12 years of no playoffs and beyond mediocre teams.
