Miami Dolphins: After scoring on their first possession against the Bengals, the Dolphins’ next 10 drives ended in a punt, fumble, interception or turning the ball over on downs.

New England Patriots: The Patriots have won 28 of their last 32 meetings with the Bills. New England Coach Bill Belichick is 11-4 vs. Buffalo Coach Rex Ryan.

N.Y. Jets: Eric Decker has a touchdown catch in eight straight home games. However, he missed practice this week because of a shoulder injury.

Oakland Raiders: The Raiders are 5-1 when Amari Cooper has at least 100 yards receiving. He had 109 against Baltimore last season and topped that mark once this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Running back LeVeon Bell returns after missing three games because of a suspension. He missed the first two games last year for the same reason.
