    J-E-T-S SWEPT SWEPT SWEPT!!! Its always good to knock out a division rival, especially twice a year. Miami looks to break out the brooms once more this week when they fly to the Buffalo to take on the Bills.

    This game has a lot riding on it. If Miami can beat Buffalo and if Denver loses to the Kansas City they are in the playoffs. However if they lose in Buffalo they will need help in order to get into the playoffs. And the Bill are certainly going to try their hardest to trip up Miami's playoffs aspirations.

    Over the past few year Buffalo has been a thorn in Miami's side. Miami managed to beat the Bills by three points earlier in the year relying on Jay Ajayi's run ability to control the pace of the game. The Bills will likely look to do the same with LeSean McCoy. Thankfully Miami's defense has been clicking a lot better since the last time the Dolphins played the Bills which should hopefully help lead the Dolphins to a victory.

    The other factor to this game is the fact that it could mean Rex Ryan may be out of a job at the end of the season. While that may not seem like a big deal Ryan is a players coach and even though the Bills have a long shot to make the playoffs, there is a high chance the Bills will play really tough just to win one for the coach.

    In my personal opinion the game will come down to who has more desire. Will the desire to make the playoffs push the Dolphins to out play the Bills or will the desire to win one for the coach allow the Bills to top the Dolphins? Let us know what you think in the main forum!

    For Miami to get the 6 seed

    11-5 - Miami would guarantee themselves the 6 seed and have serious aspirations about the 5 seed

    10-6 - Miami would have lost one of their final two games (@ NYJ & vs. NE) AND Denver would have to lose at least 1 of their final two games (@ KC & vs. Oak). If Denver were to win their final 2 games, Miami would need KC to lose their final 2 games so KC can win the tiebreak over Denver (division tiebreak) and we can win the tiebreak over KC (common games tiebreak). This scenario would guarantee us the 6 seed, and possibly the 5 seed (see below)

    9-7 - Miami would have lost both of their final games and they need a bunch of stuff to go their way including: Denver going 0-2, Baltimore going 0-2, Buffalo going 1-1 (they would edge us out via strength of victory), Tennessee going 0-2, etc. Just an unimaginable situation, one that will merit more analysis if we lose next week and see the other results.

    For Miami to get the 5 seed

    11-5 - Miami would need Kansas City to lose at least one of their last 2 games and Oakland to win at least one of their last 2 games. Oakland would win the division and we would beat KC on tiebreak (common games).

    10-6 - Miami would need Kansas City to lose both of their final 2 games and either Baltimore or Pittsburgh to finish 9-7. KC wins any tiebreak vs. Denver in the AFC West due to Division Record and we own the tiebreak over KC (common games). However if Baltimore and Pittsburgh both finish 10-6, Baltimore would win the division and in a 3 way race between KC/Miami/Pittsburgh . . . Pittsburgh is the 5 seed because of the best conference record (4 losses). Miami and KC would have 5 conference losses and Miami wins the tiebreak via common games to maintain the 6 seed.

    9-7 - No chance to get the 5 seed

    Things have certainly been interesting with the Dolphins this year. The Dolphins squeaked by last week with a win against Arizona at home with a last second field goal by Andrew Franks. Unfortunately the win was bitter sweet as Ryan Tannehill's resilience was finally brought to an end as he ended up with a sprained MCL and ACL on his left leg. This leave Miami going into New York with Matt Moore at the helm in place of Tannehill. The bright side of this situation is Adam Gase has show his ability to compensate for injured players all season long.

    The game in New York won't be easy by any stretch of the imagination, no division game is, but this should be slightly easier as the Jets are starting second year quarterback Bryce Petty under center and Matt Forte is a game time decision. It will be interesting to see how Vance Johnson attacks the Jets offense with his resurgent defense. Suh and Wake could have a big game forcing the second year QB to panic.

    What do you think? Can Miami over come not having the heart and soul of the team under center this weekend? Let us know in the main forum.
