Dolphins vs. Bills score: Miami survives Josh Allen-led Buffalo, ‘butt punt’ to remain

In Top News

Two things were made evident during the Dolphins’ 21-19 win over the Bills on Sunday. Buffalo’s offense is capable of being stopped, and Miami is a legitimate threat to make noise in the AFC playoffs under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel. 

Miami pulled out the win after Melvin Ingram and Emmanuel Ogbah tackled Isaiah McKenzie in bounds on the game’s final play. The Bills then tried in vein to spike the ball before ultimately running out of time. Buffalo got the ball back after Thomas Morstead’s punt was deflected in the end zone after hitting the backside of teammate Trent Sherfield, resulting in a safety. The Dolphins’ defense then withstood the Bills on their final drive to move to 3-0 on the season. The Bills are now 2-1 after dropping their first game of the season. 

Ahead 17-14, the Bills were unable to extend their lead after Tyler Bass missed a 38-yard field goal attempt a minute into the fourth quarter. Tagovailoa hit Waddle for gains of 32 and 45 yards (the second completion coming on a 3rd-and-22 play) to set up Chase Edmonds’ game-winning score. Miami’s defense then forced a turnover on downs late in the game before Buffalo’s offense ran out of time on its final drive. 

The teams played to a 14-14 tie after one half. It was a big first half for Bills quarterback Josh Allen. He went a perfect 6 of 6 on Buffalo’s first drive that included his two-yard touchdown pass to Devin Singletary on fourth-and-goal. Allen’s second touchdown pass of the half — an eight-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie — gave Buffalo a 14-7 lead three minutes into the second quarter. 

Miami’s defense set up the Dolphins’ first score when Ingram scooped up Jevon Holland’s strip-sack of Allen. Edmonds tied the score with a one-yard touchdown run four plays later. Miami drove 83 yards on nine plays on its ensuing drive that was punctuated by Tagovailoa’s 11-yard, game-tying strike to River Cracraft.
