Game Facts

Dolphins facts

The Dolphins have won their last three games against the Chiefs, including a 31-3 win in 2011 in the teams' most recent meeting.

Center Mike Pouncey practiced this week for the first time since undergoing hip surgery in July and could play Sunday.

Running back Knowshon Moreno injured his left elbow against the Bills and will be out for about a month. The team re-signed Daniel Thomas to replace Moreno.

Left tackle Branden Albert, signed as a free agent in the offseason, played for the Chiefs for the past six seasons.

Running back Lamar Miller was seen in an ankle boot after the game against Buffalo but is expected to play Sunday and be the team's No. 1 back in Moreno's absence.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is 34th among 35 qualifying players in yards per pass attempt with 5.17.

Tannehill has 39 passing touchdowns, one shy of tying Don Strock for fourth in franchise history.

Tannehill was sacked four times against the Bills. He was sacked a franchise-record 58 times last season.

Against Buffalo, Miami's special teams gave up a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, had a punt blocked and lost a fumble on a punt return.

In his first career start on the road, linebacker Jelani Jenkins led the team with 14 tackles against the Bills.

Running back Jamaal Charles sustained a high ankle sprain against the Broncos but returned to practice on Thursday and could play against the Dolphins.

Safety Eric Berry also injured his ankle against Denver. His status for Sunday is also unclear.

The Chiefs were stopped on the goal line twice against the Broncos.

Quarterback Alex Smith is 30th in the league with 5.94 yards per pass attempt.
