The Buffalo Bills came into the 2022 season as the odds-on favorites to win the Super Bowl. Now, their quest to prove those oddsmakers correct begins as they will be hosting the Miami Dolphins on Super Wild Card Weekend.
The AFC East rivals split their two regular-season meetings with each winning on their home field. The Dolphins won in Week 3, handing the Bills their first loss of the season, 21-19. In Week 15, another close game ensued as Buffalo came away with a 32-29 victory over Miami.
Alas, in those two games, the Dolphins had Tua Tagovailoa under center. Will they be able to overcome his absence and pick up the upset on Sunday afternoon? Or will it be the Bills advancing to the Divisional Round? Here are five bold predictions for when the Dolphins and Bills face off in Super Wild Card Weekend.
5. Josh Allen Has Monster Game
This season has been up and down at times for Bills quarterback Josh Allen. His passing yardage and touchdowns declined for a second consecutive year while his interception percentage rose for the second straight season.
He threw multiple interceptions in three straight games in the middle of the season and had five instances in which he threw two in a game. Alas, none of those performances came against the Dolphins, who he torched both regular season games and will light up again this weekend.
In the regular season matchups, Allen threw for 704 yards and six touchdowns. In the tiebreaker game for the season, Allen will throw for at least 350 yards and three touchdowns. Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis will both surpass the 100-yard mark in what will be another aerial display by Allen.
