Bills vs Dolphins Week 3 Game Info
2022 NFL Regular Season — Week 3
Buffalo Bills (2-0, 1-0 Away) vs. Miami Dolphins (2-0, 1-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, September 25, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET

Only six teams remain undefeated in the NFL and two go head-to-head in Week 3 as the Buffalo Bills visit the Miami Dolphins. The Bills have won each of their first two games by at least 21 points and crushed the Tennessee Titans by a score of 41-7 in Week 2. Quarterback Josh Allen is an early MVP favorite.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins mounted a furious comeback against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 to emerge victorious, 42-38. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa tossed 6 touchdowns in the win and now leads the NFL with 739 passing yards in 2022. Facing the Bills' defense presents as a massive test, though.

Bills vs Dolphins Prediction & Pick
There's no denying that seeing the Dolphins jump to the top of the AFC East and cement themselves as an AFC contender with a win would be amazing. However, it's hard to pick against the Bills in any matchup. That's especially the case considering Buffalo is 7-0 in its last seven games against Miami.
This one will come down to whether or not the Dolphins' secondary can slow down wide receiver Stefon Diggs. The Pro Bowl talent has logged 270 yards and 4 touchdowns on 20 receptions through two games. His relentless energy will guide the Bills to a win, but it's not going to be a blowout win.
Final Score Prediction: Bills: 31 | Dolphins: 27
