After a tough week, it's time to put aside historical trends, and focus on how the teams are playing now. We're looking for teams that are coming on, hooking up with those in decline.

    We don't have to look far. The Bills have lost three straight while Miami has put together a pair of wins. The Dolphins' defense has given up one touchdown in those two wins. Ray Lucas, after a shaky start as Jay Fiedler's sub, has thrown 96 consecutive passes without a pick. In his last five games, Drew Bledsoe has four picks and only four touchdown tosses. Remember, in Miami's 23-10 loss to the Bills last month, Lucas turned the ball over six times.
