Both teams have played in one-score games (less than eight points) in each of the past four matchups. … The Dol­phins en­ter the game in hopes of end­ing a two-game skid. Over­all, Mi­ami has lost six of its past eight games, in­clud­ing four of the past five. … The Bills en­ter the game on a two-game win streak. … Both start­ing quar­ter­backs made their re­turns last week af­ter deal­ing with in­juries. Mi­ami’s Ryan Tan­nehill re­turned af­ter five games to nurse a cap­sule in­jury in his right shoul­der, while Buf­falo rookie Josh Allen missed four games due to an el­bow in­jury. … Sun­day’s game marks the re­turn of em­bat­tled de­fen­sive tackle Jor­dan Phillips, who was re­leased by Mi­ami in Oc­to­ber and claimed one day later by Buf­falo. … Dol­phins tight end Nick O’Leary will also face his for­mer team two months af­ter the Bills waived him. … Both teams will wear throw­back uni­forms dur­ing the game, while se­lect play­ers will wear com­mem­o­ra­tive cleats to be auc­tioned for their re­spec­tive char­i­ties in the My Cause, My Cleats ini­tia­tive.
