The Miami Dolphins had their playoff hopes take a huge hit on Sunday, falling 19-0 to the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins went into the weekend controlling their playoff destiny, but now, due to the loss, Miami will have to wait around and hope other teams lose down the stretch.
To say the Dolphins struggled on Sunday would be an understatement. The team tallied only 103 yards of offense, relinquishing seven sacks of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. (Tannehill left the game briefly after the sixth sack and was replaced by Matt Moore, who threw two interceptions in replacement duty.)
The seven sacks gives Buffalo 56 on the season, a franchise record.
In contrast to Miami’s offensive struggles, the Bills totaled 390 yards of offense. Thad Lewis, starting at quarterback, completed 15 of his 25 passes for 193 yards. The offensive stars of the game, though, were the Buffalo running backs. Fred Jackson carried the ball 19 times for 111 yards and a touchdown, and C.J. Spiller contributed 77 rushing yards of his own.
There weren’t many GIF-able highlights from the game, but there is this clip of wide receiver Robert Woods earning himself an ejection for throwing a punch.
