The Weather Could Be Bad For The Bills-Dolphins Game on Sunday
We're 48 hours away from the Buffalo Bills game on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins down at Hard Rock Stadium.
It's a huge week 3 game for both teams. The Bills and Dolphins are both 2-0 and this will decide who will be alone at the top of the AFC East.
The Bills are flying high as the regarded, best team in the NFL after their blowout wins against the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans but will battle far more injuries with this game in Miami.
Head coach Sean McDermott ruled out cornerback Dane Jackson, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and safety Micah Hyde for the game, which means the Bills will rely on two rookies at CB (Kaiir Elam and Christian Benford), along with Jaquan Johnson at safety. We're hoping Jordan Poyer can play the opposite safety spot.
It's not just the injuries though. It looks like the weather won't cooperate either.
WGRZ's Patrick Hammer says the weather will impact Sunday's game in Miami between the Bills and Dolphins.
AccuWeather's forecast calls for rain in the afternoon with thunderstorms in spots. They say a rain jacket will be needed for the game at Hard Rock Stadium.
The rain will impact the game, especially with the Bills passing offense. If there are thunderstorms, that could cause delays if lightning is nearby; which has happened plenty before in Miami and Tampa Bay for NFL games.
If you're a Bills fan going to the game, be prepared to get wet. There's also a potential hurricane/tropical storm that will strike Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday, which is currently forming in the Caribbean.
Looks like we get the first bad weather game of the Bills season on Sunday.
