Incognito, selected in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams, said he was not out for revenge when the Bills visit the Dolphins on Sunday.
STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES – Buffalo has been penalized league-most 25 times for 253 yards….
Currently, the only healthy tight end is Jake Stoneburner, who was promoted off the practice squad last week and responded with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill. Dolphins RBs have combined for 72 yards in 26 carries, an average of 2.8…. The Dolphins defense is familiar with Clay but how the Bills use him in their scheme this week will be the telling factor as to whether the Dolphins defense can read his tendencies.
“They got a quality front”, Fox said. But it’s something that’s hard to simulate, and the coaches are well aware of that. But Taylor must show better poise than he did against the Patriots, who did a good job of rattling him with pressure (he was sacked eight times and at least three were his fault) and confusing him with a variety of coverages and coverage disguises that contributed to his three interceptions. If you were ever going to bet Miami as a favorite doing it at home while only giving (-2.5) against a team that hasn’t made the playoffs this century would be the spot to do it. The fact the line is below a field goal suggests oddsmakers believe the Bills are the better team on a neutral field. McCoy is a much better runner than both. Rarely do they have a running back that breaks 100 yards.
Smith could be Jets’ backup QB • Geno Smith practiced full Thursday for the second consecutive day, and it’s possible he could be active for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. That should allow them to give him a fairly heavy workload, especially in the early going when the goal should be to set a physical tone that quiets the crowd.
“It’s so tough”, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.
Landry producingIt started last season during his rookie year. There is no reason for them to fall short of that this year. “I think that’s all I’ve got to prove and I think that’s all anybody’s gotta do”.
After Sunday’s neck injury against New England, it is unlikely that the Bills’ starting safety will play in Miami. Most stemmed from a clear lack of discipline, such as personal fouls and off-sides calls. Miller, meanwhile, is trying to block out the attitude Suh plays with.
Sims sat out the loss at Jacksonville. While coach Joe Philbin quickly dismissed a report Suh was “freelancing” on plays, Miami (1-1) clearly needs more than the two tackles he’s provided since opponents aren’t afraid to run on the Dolphins, who have yielded 284 rushing yards and must be wary of LeSean McCoy after his 89-yard, 15-carry effort against New England.
