Sunday afternoon will be meeting number three this season between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins.
Stealing shamelessly from the legend Art Wander, “Wait a Minute. Wait a Minute. Wait a minute.”
I genuinely was not looking for yet another No. 3 reference attempting to add to the extremely impressive lengthily list that both the Buffalo Sabres and Bills have accumulated. So be it. If it’s honoring and supportive of Damar Hamlin, I’m all in.
“I feel like that’s God talking to me. I really feel like that’s what my purpose is. That’s why He put me here.” - Damar Hamlin
Antecedently, Tage Thomson of the Buffalo Sabres dedicated the January 3rd game to Damar Hamlin. Thompson scored three goals for both his 3rd hat-trick and his 30th goal of the season.
The Buffalo Bills had their own list of the power-of-three, including Josh Allen tossing three touchdowns, advancing the team record to 13-3.
“When you put real love out into the world it comes back to you 3 times as much. The Love has been overwhelming, but I’m thankful for every single person that prayed for me and reached out. We brung the world back together behind this. If you know me you know this only gone make me stronger. On a long road keep praying for me!” – Damar Hamlin
Pray for three.
“The amount off faith, hope and love that we saw on display over the last three days has been nothing short of amazing.” – Sean McDermott
This third meeting against the fish from South Beach will be in Bills Country with a win or done consequence.
“Glory to God for his keeping Damar and his family in the palm of his hand over the last couple of days.” – Sean McDermott
The Zack Moss trade to Indianapolis for Nyheim Hines at the deadline appears to be more than just a last minute move for the sake of making a move. Two kickoff returns for touchdowns in one game? Are you kidding me? Brandon Beane appears to know what he is doing. He has already been a wheeler and dealer with trades brining the likes of Ryan Bates and Stefon Diggs to the Bills family.
“I’m also ecstatic about being around the guys with all the success that they’re having. I’m looking forward to getting an opportunity to be around those guys and shake the hands of some of the guys that I’ve played against and some of those guys that I’ve enjoyed watching as their careers have developed into what they’ve become today.” – Fred Jackson
Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week:
Offensive lineman Justin Murray has been released, etching out room to sign Cole Beasley from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Beasley has caught two passes in two games for 18 yards this season since coming out of retirement.
The Associated Press announced that Matt Milano was named first team All-Pro. Well done.
The Associate Press is recognizing Stefon Diggs as second team All-Pro. Congratulations.
Fred Jackson will be the Legend of the Game for Sunday’s Wild Card contest.
