MIAMI, FL (WKBW) The Bills traveled to South Florida looking to sweep the season series with the Dolphins, and avoid falling to double digit losses on the season. Unfortunately for the Bills, turnovers and lack of execution did not allow that to happen as the Bills fall to Miami 24-10.
The Bills had momentum early after a blocked field goal attempt by Alex Carrington. But on the following drive, Steve Johnson would fumble a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick, recovered by Miami, that would set up the first score of the game for the Dolphins.
It was a big day for Reggie Bush, who opened the scoring with a screen pass into the endzone.
The running back on the Bills side of things also had a big day, without the scoring. CJ Spiller had 138 yards on 22 carries, which included a 61 yard career long run in the first half.
But after a dropped touchdown by Steve Johnson, the Bills would settle for a field goal and leave the door open for the Dolphins. Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill would beat the Bills on the ground and through the air. A big run would set up another Bush touchdown.
The second half would get worse for the Bills, with a third Reggie Bush touchdown as the Dolphins pulled away.
The Bills would try to make it close at the end, but a Ryan Fitzpatrick interception on the one yard line would seal the game.
Both Scott Chandler and Dorin Dickerson left the game with injuries. Head coach Chan Gailey said updates on their condition would come Monday.
The Dolphins beat the Bills 24-10, dropping the Bills to 5-10. They finish off the season next Sunday at home against the New York Jets
