Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game on NFL Network features two of the league’s most surprising defenses. Neither the Buffalo Bills nor the Miami Dolphins is bowling teams over with their offense, which is why both teams have a 5-4 record. But both teams are in the top 6 on defense, promising a “traditional” NFL game of sorts as we watch Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins online free Thursday Night Football live stream or on the NFL Network.
People who watch tonight’s Dolphins game aren’t looking for QB Ryan Tannehill to do big things, though he did light-up the Chargers offense for 37 points two weeks ago. Tannehill’s 288-yard, three-TD performance was good, but it was the Miami defense holding Chargers QB Philip Rivers to 138 yards and three interceptions that led Miami to the 37-0 Week 9 win.
Miami’s fourth-ranked defense will again get the spotlight as we watch Thursday Night Football free live against the Bills. Kyle Orton is continuing to acclimate to his starting QB spot, while WR Sammy Watkins will play in just his second game since returning from injuries and RB Fred Jackson is unlikely to play against the Dolphins. Orton on Sunday led the Bills to a 10-point lead going into the fourth quarter, but a rare defensive collapse let Chiefs QB Alex Smith and RB Jamaal Charles each score in less than five minutes, allowing the Chiefs to steal a 17-13 comeback win.
Such a defensive collapse isn’t likely to happen on TNF as we watch tonight’s Bills Dolphins game. Miami QB Tannehill has been playing behind a weakened offensive line, while the Bills’ front four has been unstoppable with 34 sacks.
In spite of their identical records, the Bills and Dolphins are second and third in the AFC East as we prepare to watch TNF online free or on NFL Network. The winner of tonight’s Bills Dolphins game will hold a firm grip on the No. 2 seed behind New England with just six weeks left in the regular season.
