Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins prediction:

This game is interesting as it is unclear who is going to be playing quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. Tua Tagovailoa is in concussion protocol once again and if the league is actually serious about concussions he should not play in this game.

Some Dolphins fans might push for Tua to play in this game but the rest of his life is far more important than this one playoff game. Suffering this many concussions in such a short time frame is a serious issue that must be taking seriously.

Teddy Bridgewater would be the normal starter in place of Tua but a dislocated pinky kept him out of action in Week 18. This paved the way for Skylar Thompson to start and the Dolphins could only eek by the New York Jets with six points scored.

The same explosive Dolphins offense that other NFL fans were worried about eight weeks ago is no longer here. Even when Tua was healthy the offense simply was not the same as the book was out on Mike McDaniels' offensive game plan and how to attack it.

It is really hard to imagine the Dolphins going into Buffalo and beating the Bills without their starting quarterback. Like the last matchup, there is a chance of snow in this game that would heavily favor the Bills, who are already the favored team in this matchup.

Prediction: Bills 30, Dolphins 16
