Bills at Dolphins final score: Buffalo sneaks by Miami, 23-21

Things started off well for the Miami Dolphins this season, posting a 3-0 record through the seasons first three weeks. Unfortunately, things haven’t been as kind to the Dolphins recently as the Fins have lost three straight, but to make matters even worse, two of the three losses were by a combined five points.

One of those losses occurred today as the Dolphins couldn’t get out of the early hole they dug against the Buffalo Bills.

Starting Thaddeus Lewis for the second straight week, the Bills took an early commanding 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a pick-six by Nickell Robey and a Fred Jackson touchdown rush.

There was a momentary scare for the Bills as Jackson went down hard early in the game, though, just moments later returned – shocking considering the hit he had taken.

Despite the fourteen point deficit, the Dolphins didn’t fold as Miami quickly tightened things up with a Charles Clay touchdown catch, though Buffalo was able to add a field goal not long after extending the Bills’ lead to ten points.

However, with just seconds left in the first half, Brandon Gibson secured a short pass from Ryan Tannehill, leaping from four yards out to tighten the Bills’ lead which has shrunk to just three.

Another Brandon Gibson touchdown in the third quarter gave Miami a four point lead, though, two field goals by Buffalo in the fourth quarter would be enough to sneak out of South Beach with a win as the Dolphins were shut out offensively in the final quarter.

The loss drops Miami to 3-3 while Buffalo improves to 3-4.
