The Bills Prove to the Dolphins That Ping Pong Isn’t the Problem
What a difference that three weeks makes.
Back in week 3, the Buffalo Bills were dealing with a laundry list of injuries against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Bills lost a close game against the Dolphins and Miami claimed the top spot in the AFC East at 3-0, while Buffalo was 2-1. The Bills outgained the Dolphins by 280 yards but in the intense South Florida heat, the Dolphins pulled off the victory.
The Dolphins season took a turn for the worse four days later, when they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football and starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa left the game in an ambulance with a concussion.
Tua won't play this week for Miami and they have now lost back-to-back games, with the second being a blowout loss to the New York Jets, 40-17; which also resulted in backup QB Teddy Bridgewater leaving as a result of a concussion.
Miami is now 3.5-point underdogs at home against the Minnesota Vikings, with third string QB Skyler Thompson preparing to likely start his first career game on Sunday.
According to Almando Salguero, the Dolphins players have decided to remove all ping-pong tables from their locker room, to focus more on game preparation.
What's ironic is that the 4-1 Bills have a ton of recreational activities at their Adpro Sports Training Center in Orchard Park.
They even have a ping-pong standings board.
Not only that, but the Bills also have cornhole, air hockey and a basketball hoop.
The Bills have promoted a worth-first attitude since head coach Sean McDermott got here in 2017, but Buffalo is now proving that you can have fun with the work, as long as you stay with the right mindset.
Having this talent and Josh Allen at quarterback certainly helps too.
