Miami trailed the Bills, 17-6, late in the third period. A 66-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill to Kenny Stills with 2:04 to play put the game away for the Dolphins.

The Dolphins’ defense played well, sacking Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor four times and holding the Bills to only 67 yards rushing. In all, Miami outgained Buffalo 454-267 in yardage.

The victory improved Miami’s record to 3-4.
