The NFL’s two Week 2 games in Miami and Buffalo are the two marquee matchups on the calendar.
Here are our five takeaways from each: Miami Dolphins: A tough win for the Dolphins would have the team in the thick of the playoff race.
The Dolphins defeated the New England Patriots 27-17 on Thursday night to become the first team to win back-to-back games in the divisional round since 2010.
With that victory, the Dolphins won three of four games in which they have played.
They are now in position to make the postseason for the second consecutive year, which would mean winning both games.
The only other team to have done that in the past 10 years was the 2001 Ravens, who lost to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round of the playoffs.
Buffalo Bills: The Bills beat the Colts 17-16 on Thursday to win their third straight game and third straight division title.
They have a 3-2 record against the Patriots this season and a 5-1 record in the AFC East.
That means Buffalo is in the top spot in the NFC East.
The Bills are now three games back of the Jets for the final playoff spot in a crowded division.
If the Bills make the playoffs, the team would become the third team to do so since 2000.
