MATCHUP OF THE WEEK
Ricky Williams versus the elements
We'll find out this month if Williams is the back the Dolphins think they traded for last March—a four-wheel-drive vehicle built for the winter. Miami plays at Buffalo to open December and at New England to close the season. In a game in which the Dolphins held the ball for almost 36 minutes, Williams warmed up on Sunday with a 143-yard rushing day against the Chargers, who had the league's third-best run defense.
