Post staff predictions: Dolphins should eke out tight win in Buffalo

What are our Dolphins writers expecting on Sunday when the Fins host the Arizona Cardinals at Hard Rock Stadium?

STAFF PREDICTIONS

Joe Schad

What if LeSean McCoy is a lot healthier than he was in the first meeting? What if Tyrod Taylor isn’t as bad as many think? What if Buffalo’s defensive front is motivated to shut down Jay Ajayi and Matt Moore isn’t Earl Morrall after all? What if Miami can’t possibly keep winning with so many key injuries and this game is on the road, in the cold? Bills 24, Dolphins 21

Jason Lieser

It’s hard to trust the Dolphins, especially in a cold-weather road game. But it’s even harder to count on the Bills beating anyone. This team is adrift, waiting for its coach to get canned, and has one impressive win all season. Miami will get this done and inch closer to a playoff berth. Dolphins 20, Bills 10

Hal Habib

Don’t let 7-7 fool you. The Bills haven’t beaten a decent team in two months. It’ll be cold, but these Dolphins don’t care. They have that secret weapon (Matt Moore) and not-so-secret weapon (playoff incentive), not to mention Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake, who’d make a dreaded tag-team in the WWE. Dolphins 27, Bills 20

Dave George

Matt Moore isn’t going to throw four touchdown passes every week and Jay Ajayi isn’t going to average 2.7 yards per carry like he did against the Jets. I’m looking for more of a return to normalcy at Buffalo, which means a long, tough afternoon for the Miami defense and some hard-fought conversions on third down for Moore instead of spectacular touchdown bombs. Dolphins 28, Bills 23
