Buffalo Bills Rally To Beat Miami Dolphins
The Buffalo Bills have lost their share of close games. Sunday in Miami was their turn to win one, and thank the defense for this one. Defensive end Mario Williams' forced fumble on quarterback Ryan Tannehill late in the fourth quarter put the Bills in position to win it with a field goal, and it was former Dolphin kicker Dan Carpenter connecting on a 33-yard field goal with 31 seconds to play to give the Bills a 23-21 victory.
In addition to the fumble, the Bills defense also intercepted Tannehill twice; the first one by Nickell Robey on the third play from scrimmage, returning it 19 yards for a touchdown to give the Bills an early 7-0 lead.
Freddy Jackson scored on a three yard run to give Buffalo a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
And a great homecoming for Bills quarterback Thad Lewis. A native of Miami, Lewis completed 21 of 32 passes for 202 yards.
The Bills broke a six-game road losing streak to improve to 3-4 on the season, while the Dolphins have lost three in a row after opening the season with three straight wins.
The Bills are in New Orleans next week.
