Weather Could Be Awful for the Bills-Dolphins Game on Sunday
gThe Buffalo Bills play a hugely important game this Sunday night, travelling to Miami to play the Dolphins. It's the final regular season game for the NFL and will decide who wins the AFC East.
It's simple for each team -- win that game and win the division, which would be the 2 seed in the AFC. If Miami loses they will be the 6 seed and travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
If the Bills lose they would need a loss by either the Steelers or Jaguars to make the playoffs, which would be the 6 or 7 seed. If both the Steelers and Jaguars win (and Bills lose), Buffalo will be the 8th seed and miss the playoffs.
This game won't be a scorcher like normal, because it's in January and at night. However, it might still be awful weather and in the form of a ton of rain.
The forecast for Miami on Sunday are scattered thunderstorms in the morning and more widespread by the afternoon. More rain follows for game time and it could be downpours at times.
If there is lightning in the area during pregame warmups or after kickoff, then the game will be delayed, so just keep that in mind heading into Sunday. The downpours could impact the offense and potential turnovers, which always changes the outcome of a game.
Miami's going through a massive injury problem.
Both starting edge rushers are out for the season: Jaelan Phillips and Bradley Chubb. They won't have starting center Connor Williams or starting cornerback Xavien Howard and likely won't have wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. Starting running back Raheem Mostert also might not play, after being declared out vs. the Ravens in week 17.
The Bills offense has to take advantage of the injuries and have a good day. They cannot afford to have the lulls they had vs. the Chargers and Patriots.
