If the Bills and Dolphins are smart, these two should have the ball all night long Miami Dolphins (4-5) @ Buffalo Bills (3-6) The Bills and Dolphins are both looking up at the 6-3 Patriots at this point, because both teams have some serious issues.  The Bills can't stop the run and the Dolphins can't stop the pass and both have a penchant for turning the ball over. Although those issues could keep them from the playoffs, these two teams could put on an interesting show because of the talent and types of offenses they run.   The Bills have the worst run defense in the NFL giving up over 163 yards per game.  If the Dolphins are smart they should hand the ball off quite a bit.  The Dolphins only handed the ball off 15 times last week because they were blown out 37-3 by the Titans.  Reggie Bush only took four handoffs, which should at least be quadrupled this week.  Bush should also be active in the passing game.  One weakness the Dolphins have is that they don't use the talented Bush nearly enough. Buffalo will be without one of their two talented running backs as Fred Jackson was knocked out of last week's game by Brandon Spikes of the Patriots.  That could mean that C.J. Spiller will get to see the ball quite a bit.  That could lead to huge numbers for him because coming into this game, Spiller leads the league in average yards per carry, which is over 7 yards a rush.  Splller has 929 total yards from scrimmage, so he too should be a factor in the passing game.   If you can't tell, I think the winner of this game will depend on which running back has the better game and which turnover-prone quarterback holds onto the ball. Dolphins 31, Bills 27
