Live blog from balmy Orchard Park starts here

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Let's go with the news first: Nate Garner will continue to start at left guard for the Dolphins today ahead of Justin Smiley, who is active but still nursing a shoulder injury.

The inactives are: Patrick Turner, Ikaika Alama-Francis, Lydon Murtha, Jake Grove, Erik Walden, Lory Sheets and Tyler Thigpen as the No. 3 QB.

It is a beautiful day for football here and so that removes the final excuse anyone could possibly, realistically have for believing the Dolphins could lose today.

The Dolphins should not lose.

They face a Buffalo team with a new interim coach, a quarterback starting only his fourth game and one that is beat up.

The Bills today are without their starting left tackle, without their starting right tackle and without their starting right guard. And the last time today's tackles started was against Miami -- when the Dolphins had six sacks.

I must tell you there was a Disco convention at the local convention center in downtown Buffalo this weekend. so there were numerous bell-bottom-wearing, 1970s Donna Summer and Sylvester staying fans at the Adam's Mark Hotel where the Dolphins were staying last night.

Despite the music, there were no disturbances reported.

Today is a big day for Paul Soliai, who will be making his first start of the season at NT. Today is a big day for Joe Berger, who is making his first Dolphins start at center. Technically, the Dolphins are weaker up the middle on both sides of the ball than they've been all year. We'll see how they fare.

The live blog will start in the comments section below just before kickoff. And I will be updating with inactives in a few minutes. Come back.

good graces for us! momentum shifts back--must get that TD back here to set tone for rest of day

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa missed field goal. Bills suck!

Anyone have an Internet feed

You said this was fixed?

Ricky Williams has thrown two previous passes in his career. He was 1 of 2 before today with that completion coming in 2000.

For the love of God, hire a new OC. This is far from creativity, it's embarrassing and a disgrace. Get Henning in a nursery home and leave him there

Pound that rock down there throats, stick to what we know best and what they stink at

All the Dolphins have to do against a team with no interior defense is run, run, run, run.

Mando what is your vantage point? Do you sit in press box?

Lucky us. Good thing the Bills suck

Tortured: AJ Duhe is still running toward the endzone with that Int off Todd. Remember that one, idiot?

Keep running the ball & get Hilliard in the mix... No need for cut play calling non-sense.

Nice catch by Fasano. found the open space in the zone.

fasano!!!!! come on back strong

FASANO BABY !

wow 12 yarder to TE down the middle--rare and NICE

Run the ball and throw it off of play action get Henne ready for next year!!!!!!!

That was a bullet to Fasano

What a rocket! Henning has one of the strongest arms in the league.

Henne's arm looks great!

We don't need to anything fancy to beat the jills. Stick to smash mouth football and we'll win this easily!
