The bye week has come and gone as the Miami Dolphins look ahead to Sunday's crucial matchup against the Buffalo Bills at Sun Life Stadium. At 3-2, the Dolphins weathered the storm in what many believed to be the toughest part of the schedule and have positioned themselves well to make a run at the playoffs. However, the team has suffered two consecutive losses and must right the ship this week to prove they are a true contender.
In addition to allowing the team to regroup, the Dolphins Week 6 bye gave their injured stars a chance to get healthy. Cameron Wake is listed as probable and would provide a huge boost to Miami's pass rush if he is able to suit up. Dimitri Patterson, who hasn't played since Week 2, is questionable and could add depth to a depleted secondary if he is able to play. While Dannell Ellerbe insists he will be on the field this Sunday, it looks like a long shot as he is listed as doubtful.
The bye also gave the Dolphins the opportunity to make adjustments to what wasn't working in the first five games of the season. Have Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace developed chemistry? Will the coaching staff use more Marcus Thigpen and less Daniel Thomas at running back? Has the offensive line worked out the kinks? These are all questions that will be answered on Sunday.no comments
