After a week of frightening weather and an abbreviated practice schedule, the Buffalo Bills played one of their best games of the season.

In a critical AFC East showdown last night, the Dolphins emerged with a 22-9 victory, scoring the game’s final 19 points in the last 18 minutes. Miami is now 6-4 with favorable home games against Baltimore, Minnesota, and the Jets, while Buffalo is 5-5 and a longshot to make the playoffs.
The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are tied for second place in the AFC East with identical 5-4 records, and this Thursday night game is going to say a lot for what their postseason future may hold. Ian Eagle of CBS Sports took some time to talk about the big game and how it could affect the rest of the season for both teams. Let’s just say, this is a must-win for both the Bills and Dolphins.

In addition to backing up Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow has been rumored to see time as a punt protector. But punt protection may not be all that Tebow is asked to partake in within the special-teams unit. He may also be utilized on kickoff coverage.
Tim Tebow’s role with the Jets is unclear, but he’s prepared for anything.
