Buffalo Bills Shut Out Miami Dolphins
It was one of the most satisfying victories of the season for not only the Buffalo Bills, but the fans as well. With TV coverage blacked out locally, it’s too bad only the people who attended the game were able to enjoy it. The Bills not only dominated the Miami Dolphins in a 19-0 shutout, they completed a season sweep and seriously damaged the Dolphins’ playoff hopes. And when you consider the rivalry between the two teams and the agony the Dolphins have placed on the Bills over the years the win was sweet.
The Bills defense set the tone sacking Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill seven times to set a new Bills team record for sacks in a season with 56. Kyle Williams and Nickell Robey each led the way with two each. Williams says he’s excited about what this defense can become –
The Bills held the Dolphins to 103 total yards for the day, six first downs and only 2 of 14 on third down conversions while picking off two Tannehill passes. The Dolphins looked nothing like the team that beat the Patriots the week before. Jerry Hughes says each week is a learning experience for a young defense –
On the other side of the ball with Thad Lewis at quarterback the Bills racked up 390 yards in offense. Fred Jackson ran for 111 yards and a touchdown while C-J Spiller added another 77 on the ground. Head coach Doug Marrone says the team feeds off the home field advantage –
It gives the Bills back to back wins for the first time this season and improves their season record to 6-9 with a trip to New England next week to close the season.
