It's a position the Bills have been all too familiar with in recent years: the team unable to pick up wins against division rivals.
A loss Sunday in Miami would mean an 0-3 start in the AFC East. It's a position the Bills have been in often in recent years, and they've lost close games against the Patriots and Jets.
At 2-4 on the season, a win over the Dolphins would be big, but not any more important than winning any other game during the season.
"I don’t like saying you can afford to go anywhere when you’re losing. That’s the problem. For us, we’ve gotten good effort; obviously, adversity hit us. We’re not performing at the times we need to perform. That’s what I’ve talked to the players about, we haven’t been in conjunction where all three phases have played at the level we need them to play at at once. That’s where we’re striving to get them," said head coach Doug Marrone.
"We need to win regardless. Every game is urgent. So that's how I see it. You don't take one game as being more urgent than another," said defensive end Mario Williams.
