Bills players had eyes on the scoreboard at Hard Rock Stadium late in their game, watching the Bengals play the Ravens. The Dolphins cut the gap by 10 points in the fourth quarter but Buffalo hung on, and fans including Jack Nicklaus waited for news from Baltimore.
After the results, the Bills secure the second wild-card spot in the AFC.
Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes, including a 49-yard strike to Tyler Boyd with 44 seconds left, and the Cincinnati Bengals knocked the Baltimore Ravens out of the playoffs with a 31-27 victory.
Prior to Sunday, Fales had attempted just six National Football League passes. He's also added 193 yards and two more scores on the ground. Many NFL draft pundits have pegged the Dolphins to take a defensive end in the 2018 draft, but if Malveaux continues to develop at this rate, Miami could explore improving another position group in April. I think that's a good quality as a leader. They're a talented group.
"Some guys, very few, tried to catch some sleep, particularly the coaching staff because they knew it'd be an early morning". Coaches and athletes stared at the Bengals' biggest play of the game. "Everyone gets pumped up for that game, myself included". After a 32-yard run by Kenyan Drake, the Dolphins had two of those pre-snap penalties in a row. It was the "Music City Miracle" 22-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans back on January 9, 2000, when Frank Wycheck's lateral to Kevin Dyson traveled 75 yards for a kick-return touchdown in the waning seconds.
When speaking to the media this week, Drake said he is looking forward to playing the Bills for the second time in three weeks. It's just a neat thing to be a part of and say you were there when it happened. That's not really stretching the field out.
It was just the flawless setting.
Tennessee had a win-and-get-in scenario and took advantage by beating the AFC South champion Jags 15-10.
The Bills' joy was tempered by the loss of 1,000-yard rusher LeSean McCoy because of a right ankle injury. Drafted in 2006, Williams has been in the middle of the franchise's now-ended 17-year playoff drought. Marvin Jones Jr. hauled in four passes for 81 yards and a touchdown.
The Miami Dolphins' disappointing season had owner Stephen Ross cursing Sunday.
Her son suggested greeting the Bills after the team tweeted its travel itinerary. He said he got involved in the scuffle because he was trying to protect Jarvis Landry, who had supposedly been grabbed around the neck by Buffalo safety Jordan Poyer. Unfortunately, the year started with an injury blow to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, leaving them to scramble for the already retired Jay Cutler. Murphy didn't have a great game, but he led the team in rushing and came up with crucial runs.
