It's 90 degrees a few hours before kickoff. There is a 60 percent chance of rain around 3 p.m., which is interesting for Josh Allen and Tua Tagovailoa.
Allen, the Bills quarterback, fumbles all the time, specifically nine times in the last 10 games. Tagovailoa had a particularly rough practice in the rain this summer.

Xavien Howard's interception set up the Dolphins deep in Bills' territory but a couple of dropped passes and coming up short on 4th-and-2 and it remains 14-0 Buffalo.
Sacked three times and shaken up on the last one, Tua Tagovailoa was replaced by Jacoby Brissett late in the first quarter. Not that it made any difference - Dolphins went 3-and-out on his first series.Tua was carted off the field and we'll update
After the Dolphins failed to convert on fourth down around midfield, the Bills put it in the end zone again, this time on a Josh Allen 5-yard pass to Stefon Diggs. The Dolphins are down 14-0 just 8 minutes into the game.
Former FAU running back Devin "Motor" Singletary's 46-yard TD run on Buffalo's second play from scrimmage put the Bills ahead 7-0.
The Dolphins scratched rookie tight end Hunter Long on Sunday. Long played against the Patriots but will sit out as Adam Shaheen returns from the COVID-19 list. Shaheen got COVID-19 but says he does not regret refusing the vaccine. Offensive tackle Greg Little and cornerback Noah Igbinoghene are among the notable scratches.
