Welcome to Sun Life Stadium
By Mike Rodak
MIAMI -- Welcome to Sun Life Stadium, where the Miami Dolphins host the Buffalo Bills. (CBS, 1 p.m. ET)
Weather conditions: It's like any other day in South Florida: temperatures are currently in the low-80s, rising to the upper 80s by kickoff. Skies are partly cloudy with a slight chance of a rain. Humidity is very high (dew point of 76 degrees), with the heat index in the mid-90s.
Almost a full squad: The Bills are generally as healthy as they've been all season, with just one player -- quarterback EJ Manuel -- declared out entering the game. All others on the injury report are probable. Other than Manuel, the Bills must declare another six players inactive by 11:30 a.m. Expect those to be healthy scratches.
Game-day chats: Starting at 11 a.m., ESPN.com will host a "Sunday Countdown" chat, with observations from reporters across the NFL as game time approaches. Then, once Bills-Dolphins kicks off at 1 p.m., we'll have an in-game chat where readers can contribute questions and follow along with in-game observations. Look for links to those later today.
Steratore gets the call: Official Gene Steratore, in his eighth season as a referee, gets the call for today's game.
