One team will end a losing streak. Which one? [Thursday Night Football Live Thread]

Blog Photo - Thursday Night Football Week 11 Live ThreadIt wasn't long ago that Thursday Night Football was primarily on Thanksgiving. But, the owners and the league and the fans are selfish, and we'll take as many nights per week of football as we can get. Even if every Thursday game hasn't been all that great thus far. Let's hope next Thursday gives us something more to be thankful for.

The Dolphins were starting to show some promise before they dropped their last two, and the Bills started their season on a good note and have since imploded. While this may lead most football fans to believe the game tonight is sure to be a yawn-fest, I'm not so sure. While these two teams are on a combined five-game losing streak, that just makes me believe that they're both hungry for a win, and the fact that they are in the same division will just amplify that appetite. This game could very well be a well-matched interesting bout.

Both teams still have the ability to make a run for the playoffs, if they can bounce back from a few disappointing games and actually show up for the rest of the season. Both teams have shown that while it might be improbable at this point, the post season for either of them isn't exactly impossible.

If there was a way that both teams could lose a game, it wouldn't be a reach to predict a double loss tonight. Maybe they'll both keep their no-win streak alive with a tie. If the NFL has shown us nothing else this season, it's to expect the unexpected. Let's see how it goes, and Q it up here tonight on Thursday Night Football!

Dolphins still got a lot of problems it needs to deal with, too much improvement to make.

The Bills' D-Line came to play and the Bills came up with 2 crucial interceptions to seal the win for the Bills... Those were the factors in that game.  Also the Dolphins committed over 4 pass interference penalties in the process...

Miami is getting a dose of reality that they are not ready to be playoff contenders at this point.

You're not kidding. Well, as long as they can keep stopping Miami, it might just do it for them this week. Red zone efficiency definitely needs to get better though. Wow.

That was one ugly game, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bills' offense didn't have to score 1 TD to beat the Dolphins...  The Bills will face Andrew Luck and the Colts next week, I can see the colts giving the Bills a run for their money.

I had a feeling when I saw Adam Schefter's tweets about the Dolphins having a leg up on the Bills, according to all of the stats that the Bills would probably pull this one off. I got a little worried there for a bit, but they did it. I hope these teams both continue playing like crap because the Hawks have both of them coming up, on the road, within the next few weeks.

I'm disappointed in the Dolphins ...I thought they could play better than this.

The more I watch Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins play, the more pi$$ed I get that my Rams lost to this team.

Bills defense is helping out the Dolphin offense with all these offside penalties

I saw that - more penalty yards than yards on offense? Sounds like the Hawks last year

Seems like the Bills are having a hardtime moving the ball in the red-zone, Bills need to get better on Red-Zone offense...  Special teams and Field goals won't get it done every week...

The Bills draw the first blood by returning a punt for a TD.
