Miami Dolphins (4-5) at Buffalo Bills (3-6) Thursday, 8:20 ET, NFL Network, Brad Nessler, Mike Mayock, Alex Flanagan Last meeting: Dolphins RB Reggie Bush rushed for 203 yards, including a 76-yard touchdown, in a 30-23 win Dec. 18, 2011. Streaking: Bills RB C.J. Spiller averages 7.3 yards per carry. He has never had 20 carries in a game. In the past 14 games, Spiller topped out at 16 carries. Spill pill: Fred Jackson (concussion) is the emotional leader of the team and his absence is significant. RB C.J. Spiller faces a stiff test in the Dolphins' fifth-ranked run defense. Miami's front seven showed signs of cracking at Indianapolis and then allowed 126 yards to Chris Johnson of the Titans in last week's blowout. Spiller has a skill set similar to Johnson's and the Bills' confidence is rising; they put up 481 yards and 35 first downs last week. Controlling the ball to keep a ragged defense off the field also requires holding a strong pocket around QB Rya...

Michael Irvin gives C.J. Spiller a double kiss

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

Bush benched, Tannehill erratic, Defense lifeless in loss to Titans

The Miami Dolphins did not show up on Sunday against the Titans. Quite simply, the Dolphins came out flat and stayed that way throughout the game. Where was the Dolphins dominant rushing defense? Where was the efficient quarterback play? Where was the turnover free football that has helped the Dolphins of late? None of it was present on Sunday. I’ll apologize now, as I...

NFL fines Patriots linebackers $30,000 for Buffalo game

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

Michael Irvin kisses C.J. Spiller during Bills/Dolphins postgame (Video)

Buffalo Bills: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#25)

Last week: 25 (+0) Record: 3-6 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...

Spiller Has Rare 5/5 Vision: He Rarely Sees The Ball When His Team Is On The 5 Yard Line

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...

Looking to Turn the Page

Reggie Bush is out of Coach Joe Philbin's doghouse, which might not be large enough to house all of the deserving Miami Dolphins. Bush and teammate Richie Incognito were benched for part of Sunday's 37-3 loss to Tennessee, but they were hardly the only culprits in the Dolphins' most lopsided home defeat since 1968.

Week 11:Know your enemy- Miami Dolphins

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...

True or False: Buffalo Bills/Miami Dolphins Edition

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. Brandon Hess: 24-11 (5-0...

Reggie “Not Getting Any” Bush in Buffalo tomorrow

Last February, Pats quarterback Tom Brady took a jab at Buffalo hotels, and Dolphins running back Reggie Bush upped the ante this week by insulting the women of that fine city. During a recent appearance on Miami’s “Paul and Young Ron Show,” Bush managed to get himself in hot water with the female population of an entire city. After discussing the fact that he was benched in...

Short Week, Short Memory for Dolphins

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...

QCS Buffalo Water Cooler: Bills Look To Squish The Fish

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...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Dolphins at Bills

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....

Fantasy football start em sit em week 11

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?

Field Goals: Playoff picture and Miami week

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. ...
