DAVIE–The Dolphins are riding high after beating the Patriots on Monday Night Football, but as coach Adam Gase said, that won’t really matter if they crumble in Sunday’s game at Buffalo.

It’ll be a tough game in many regards, the first of which being that the Bills are actually decent. Buffalo has a better record (7-6) than Miami, and the game-time temperature is expected to be around 30 degrees with the possibility of snow.

Here are Gase’s thoughts heading into the Dolphins’ first practice of the week:

–He praised Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry for being very reliable this season. They’re both averaging about 57 yards receiving per game and have combined for 14 touchdowns.

–Gase will have to adjust his play calling if the field is covered in snow. He said last week’s conditions between the Bills and Colts were “crazy.” He said he kept wondering what he’d be able to call in that scenario. “You’re probably learning as you go,” he said.

–Cornerback Cordrea Tankersley (ankle, shoulder) is still out. “We’re trying to get him back,” Gase said. “It’s tough.”

–The Dolphins have had a variety of players fill in at different positions and many backups getting significant snaps. “If you’re on this roster, you just anticipate you’re going to play,” Gase said. “And when you do, we can’t have a dropoff.”

–The offense has been better since the departure of Jay Ajayi, but Gase didn’t single out a specific reason for the uptick beyond better overall execution.
