Buffalo Bills quarterback Thad Lewis recalls rooting for the Dolphins on TV because he couldn't afford tickets to attend games growing up in Miami.

That won't be an issue for Lewis on Sunday, when the Bills (2-4) travel to face the Dolphins (3-2). It's a homecoming for Lewis, who lived some four miles from Sun Life Stadium, where he'll make his second consecutive start in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel.

Calling it "a dream come true," Lewis has 15 tickets set aside for family and friends.

On his fourth team in four years, Lewis has taken over since being promoted off the practice squad last week. He's looking to build off a solid outing in a 27-24 overtime loss to Cincinnati last weekend.
