The Miami Dolphins were no match to the Buffalo Bills as they got crushed 56-26 as the Bills hosted them for their Week 17 game, which was the determinant on who would make it in the playoffs. A 30-point win sealed Bills in the playoff while the Dolphins’ hopes diminished as they joined the other teams’ list crushed by the Bills in recent weeks.
However, the Dolphins lacked the service of their veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He was ineligible for the Sunday game as he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the coronavirus, and they relied on rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa failed to help his team win over the Bills as Flores, and his offense seemed to limit him to short-throw underneath and screen passe for most of the 1st half.
The Dolphins couldn’t get back in the game as the Bills kept scoring to the last minute.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw 3TDs, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie scored 3-times, and Cornerback Josh Norman had a pick-six in Buffalo’s 56-26 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
The regular-season finale was spectacular between the Bills vs. Dolphins as records were broken, with Allen setting a new franchise record for passing TDs and completion in a season. Interestingly, he held the record ahead of the matchup and surpassed it, setting another one.
Amazingly, he needed 39 passing yards to surpass Drew Bledsoe’s 4,359 records for passing yards in a single-season, and in the second quarter, Allen broke it!
Josh Allen is the first quarterback in the league to throw at least 4,500 yards, and 35 TD passes with 5-rushing TDs in a single-season.
The Buffalo Bills Throttle Dolphins to clinch No.2 Seed as they rolled into the playoffs on a high note. The win sets them as the No. 2 seed behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC. As No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Chiefs will enjoy a home-field advantage as they would be allowed to host 6,700 fans at their stadium starting next week.
In Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs, the Chiefs won 26-17 in Buffalo, and with both teams being No. 1 seed and No. 2 seed, it sets up a potential clash later in the bracket.
Buffalo’s (13-3) victory over Dolphins locked them in the No. 2 seed, which gives them the field-advantage as they’ll host the No. 7 seed next weekend in the first round playoffs.
A playoff wins for the Buffalo Bills next weekend will be of great virtue for the franchise since they haven’t won any game in the playoffs for 24-years, and it is the 3rd longest in the NFL.
If they continue with their excellent form, they might clinch their first AFC championship game since the 1993 season.
