This Miami Dolphins football team electrifies the city of Miami, Florida.
The win today hosting the Buffalo Bills proved that.
The Dolphins’ defense frustrated one of the best quarterbacks, Josh Allen, throughout the game and the final seconds, improving to 3-0 with a 21-19 victory over the Bills.
Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa left the game in the second quarter after appearing disoriented after a head injury caused by hitting the ground. The team clarified later that it was an issue with his back. He finished with 186 yards and a touchdown after returning in the second half from concussion protocols.
Buffalo ran 90 plays compared to 39 for Miami, outgaining the Dolphins 497 yards to 212.
The Bills had nine drives; Dolphins had eight, and the one turnover in the game belonged to the Bills.
The Dolphins were a perfect three for three in their trips to the red zone.
Dolphins just won a game versus arguably the best team in the NFL. This week the defense carried the team. Last week the offense was the reason why they won at Baltimore. This balanced football team beat a team led by the talented Josh Allen and the Bills, who looked unbeatable the first two weeks of the season.
This is a great measuring stick for the Dolphins. They have not beaten the Bills for a few seasons. This is a big moment for this team; they came up big in the moments they needed to in the game. Defensively they frustrated Allen by not allowing him to have a consistent rhythm.
Bills offensive coordinator and Miami Hurricanes legend Ken Dorsey slammed his headset. He began throwing paper and notebooks in the coaches’ box when time ran out, a clear example of how frustrated the Bills were on the field and in their coaches’ box.
Dolphins won the game with a bit of humor. With under two minutes in the game. Dolphins punter Thomas Morstead stepped into the middle of Miami’s end zone and punted right into the buttocks of blocker Trent Sherfield.
The “butt punt” was born in this game courtesy of the Dolphins, in a win.
