Thursday Night Football open thread: Bills vs. Dolphins

Some unlikely contenders battle tonight.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Who would have thought it? The Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills are in the playoff picture halfway through the season. Both teams sit at 5-4 and want to get the leg up on the other in the AFC playoff race.

Buffalo beat the Dolphins earlier this season, clobbering them at home 29-10 in Week 2.

Miami wants to avenge that loss and keep the Bills from holding a tiebreak over them.

The season has had the trend of home team blowout wins on Thursday Night Football. Will tonight continue that trend?

Miami is favored by 5.5 points. With their defense and playing at home, especially with how Brent Grimes is playing, I like the home team and will give up the 5.5.

What about straight up? The ROTB staff is almost unanimous.
