NFL picks and predictions, Bills vs. Dolphins 2015: Experts split after Week 2 stumbles

Both the Bills and Dolphins lost in Week 2 and now experts are split about which team will improve to 2-1 in Week 3.

The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins both lost in Week 2 after earning victories in Week 1. While it was an understandable loss for the Bills against the New England Patriots, it was an inexplicable defeat against the Jacksonville Jaguars for the Dolphins.

Still, while the Dolphins looked less-than-impressive against Washington in Week 1 and lost to the Jaguars, the play of Ryan Tannehill has been encouraging for the team. After earning a big extension in the offseason, Tannehill has 585 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in two games for a passer rating of 101.7.

Keeping that going against the Bills could be tough, although the Rex Ryan defense struggled to slow Tom Brady in Week 2. A more aggressive game plan could be the solution for Buffalo. If Tyrod Taylor can continue to lead the Bills offense to points like he has through the first two weeks, it could be enough against a Dolphins defense that allowed Blake Bortles to have his best career game.

Over at CBS Sports, the experts are split with four picking each team. Will Brinson and Jason La Canfora are among those taking the Bills, while Pete Prisco is siding with the Dolphins.

SB Nation's team is split, as well, but five of the experts on the seven-man panel are taking the Bills to improve to 2-1, although the OddsShark computer is projecting the Dolphins to bounce back with a win.
