The Buffalo Bills (12-3) remain on the road to take on the Miami Dolphins (4-9-2) in week 14 of the Buffalo Fanatics Madden Sim. After a dominating victory over the Raiders last week, the Bills are looking to improve their record to 13-3 on Sunday. Here are the keys to Sunday’s game.
Building something special
Although the Bills have dominated their schedule for the most part in 2020, the Miami Dolphins are building something special of their own. Rookie Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has had a strong rookie campaign, passing for 3,118 yards and 20 touchdowns. He looks like a franchise quarterback and could rejuvenate the Bills vs. Dolphins rivalry which hasn’t been seen since the ’90s.
Dawkins vs. Van Noy
Dion Dawkins will have the responsibility of taking on Miami’s best pass rusher, Kyle Van Noy, on Sunday. Van Noy has had a nice season with 60 tackles and nine sacks. He’s very versatile and athletic, which should prove to be a challenge for Dawkins. He’s been solid all season long and has faced Van Noy many times before.
The first in a long time
With a win on Sunday, the Bills will be 13-3 for the first time since 1991, nearly 30 yards ago. It would be a huge milestone for Sean McDermott and this team if they are able to pull it off in just McDermott’s fourth season as head coach.
Reflecting back at the 2020 season (so far)
It’s been an unbelievable season for the Bills in 2020. Josh Allen is the front runner for the MVP, as he is first in the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns. While also being third in passer rating. Stefon Diggs could not have played better in his first season in Buffalo. He is first in yards and second in both receptions and touchdowns. Devin Singletary became an elite running back as he fourth in rushing yards and second in touchdowns. The offense is ranked first and the defense is ranked ninth. This Bills team is extremely good and has a real shot at a Super Bowl.
