At last... here we are. It’s time for the last game of the NFL’s 2023 season: the (10-6) Buffalo Bills playing the (11-5) Miami Dolphins from Hard Rock Stadium on “Sunday Night Football.”

As always, the league has carefully adjusted the schedule of the weekend’s final season, making sure that the final playoff seeding will remain in doubt throughout the final day of Week 18. The Kansas City Chiefs are among the teams that will be watching this game very closely.

For more information about how the Buffalo-Miami game (along with other Week 18 matchups) will affect the postseason lineup, consult our cheat sheet.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Bills are favored by three points.

Here are our picks for Sunday night’s game. Be sure to cast your vote, too — and discuss the game in the comments!
