Healthy Bills Run Wild Over Miami
Tyrod Taylor and Sammy Watkins returned to spark the Bills, while LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams each ran for 100 yards to lead Buffalo to a 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday.
Taylor was accurate and effective on 11 of 12 passing for 181 yards and a touchdown in his first game back, seeming completely in sync with his second-year wide receiver who's been absent for a month. Watkins caught 8 of Buffalo's 11 completions, including a 44-yard TD connection. Watkins finished with 168 of the team's 181 receiving yards. McCoy ran for 112 and a score, while rookie RB tallied 110 and two scores, giving him five TDs in five NFL games.
The sloppy Dolphins had a botched snap on their first offensive play of the game that went for a safety, and poor clock management prompted a fail-fourth and goal attempt on the final play of the first half. QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 309 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions but did lose a fumble. Lamar Miller totaled more than 140 combined yards and adding two rushing touchdowns as Miami fell to 3-5.
The 4-4 Bills will now play five or six on the road, including this Thursday night when they visit the division-rival Jets (5-3).
