The Miami Dolphins had somewhat of a rocky start last season, with a few bumps on the road up through most of October. But then came a four-game winning streak, followed by a near-flawless run (Damn New England!) to cap out the season as AFC East champions. And it all started with the Fins home victory over the Buffalo Bills. This year, Miami is trying to move past similarly bumpy beginnings, having lost to Atlanta in the season opener and Indianapolis in a hard-fought, clock-racing second game. Its too early to be pessimistic, so well go a different route and embrace superstition. Perhaps the Bills can be another good luck charm to kick off a Miami winning streak.
The Dolphins take on the Buffalo Bills Sunday at Land Shark Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd. in Miami Gardens). Kickoff is at 4:05 p.m. and tickets start at $41. Call 1-888-FINS-TIX or visit miamidolphins.com.
