Two things stood out during the Dolphins’ 21-19 win over the Bills on Sunday. Buffalo’s offense is stoppable, and Miami is a legitimate threat to make noise in the AFC playoffs under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel.

Melvin Ingram and Emmanuel Ogba connected on Isaiah McKenzie on the final play of the game to give Miami the win. The Bills finally attempted to punt the ball before time expired. Buffalo got the ball back and it was a safety when Thomas Morstead hit teammate Trent Sherfield in the end zone. The Dolphins’ defense held off the Bills to move to 3-0 in the final season. The Bills are 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 in the fourth quarter. Tagovailoa hit Waddle for 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 forced a turnover late in the game before Buffalo’s offense ran out of time on its final drive.

The teams were tied 14-14 after one half. It was a big first half for Bills quarterback Josh Allen. He went a perfect 6-for-6 on Buffalo’s first drive, which included a two-yard touchdown pass to Devin Singletary on fourth-and-goal. Allen’s second touchdown pass of the half — an eight-yard touchdown 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’s Jevon Holland picked off Allen’s strip sack. Edmonds tied the score with a one-yard touchdown run four plays later. Miami drove 83 yards in nine plays on the following drive by Tagovailoa’s 11-yard, game-tying strike to River Cracraft.
