Bills vs. Dolphins: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Miami is going for its second win in a row and trying to keep its playoff hopes alive.

The Miami Dolphins are still mathematically alive for a playoff berth, and they'll need to defeat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon to keep themselves in the picture. Four AFC teams have already clinched playoff spots and eight have been mathematically eliminated, including the Bills.

The Dolphins are coming off a 24-3 victory over Jacksonville last weekend, which snapped a two-game losing streak. They are 2-3 over their last five games. The Bills are riding a two-game losing streak and lost 50-17 to Seattle last weekend.

Both teams have injuries to key contributors that could affect the outcome of the game. Miami wide receiver Brian Hartline, who has more than 1,000 receiving yards this season, is questionable. Defensive end Mario Williams and running back C.J. Spiller are two notables on Buffalo's injury report, though both are expected to play.

Game time: 1 p.m. ET

TV: CBS

Odds: Miami is favored by 4.5 or five points, depending on the sportsbook.
