Pro Football Network: Dolphins 24, Bills 23

Ben Rolfe writes: "None of the AFC East sides looked convincing in Week 1. But what we do not know is if they played tough opponents or just played poorly. The Dolphins forced a late-fourth-quarter turnover against the Patriots while a blocked punt beat the Bills. This game will lay down a marker for the division, and it’s in Miami — the Dolphins may not have a better opportunity all season to take a two-game lead over the Bills. The heat and humidity of Miami could be the downfall of the Bills."

Sportsnaut: Bills 34, Dolphins 27

Matt Johnson writes: "While neither of these teams made huge additions in the offseason, we can’t get Week 17 out of our mind. Buffalo cooked the Dolphins without even really trying. We certainly expect this matchup to be a lot closer, but Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs are just too good."

International Business Times: Dolphins will upset Bills

Anthony Riccobono writes: "The Dolphins could very well challenge the Bills, not just in this game, but for the AFC East title. Coming off an impressive 10-win season, Miami defeated the New England Patriots on the road in Week 1. The Dolphins gave up only 16 points, despite Mac Jones looking good in his NFL debut. After Josh Allen and the Bills’ offense was stymied by the Pittsburgh Steelers in Buffalo, the unit could struggle again against a good Miami defense."

Sports World News: Bills will win, cover the spread vs. Dolphins

It writes: "The Buffalo Bills headed into the 2021 season as one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LVI, but they were sent crashing back to earth on Sunday after losing 23-16 to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. It was a disappointing defeat for the Bills, who held a 10-0 advantage after the first half of play. This coming Sunday, the Bills will look to get their season back on track when they lock horns with the Miami Dolphins. For the Bills to record the much-needed win, they will need to get better performance from their offense. Even though Josh Allen threw for 270 yards and a touchdown, he also was sacked three times and lost a fumble."

Sportsnaut: Dolphins 27, Bills 24

Vincent Frank writes: "If teams like the Dolphins and Patriots are going to have a chance to compete with Buffalo in the AFC East, they will at least have to split. That means coming away with wins at home. Look for this to come to fruition in Week 2. During a surprising 10-win 2020 season, these Fins won five of their final six home games. That’s part of the process of head coach Brian Flores building a contender. Vastly improved heading into 2021, expect this to be taken to a whole new level."

Nick Wojton writes: "We’re still not ready to think the Dolphins have caught up to the Bills just yet. Early in the year, especially. They’ve caught up, but still need some time."
