Bills Survive Dolphins’ Late Game Rally, 34-31

Bills Advance!

Josh Allen had a memorable performance in the Buffalo Bills’ NFL wild-card matchup against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. After jumping out to an early lead, Hunter saw his team go down by three late in the third quarter before he gathered himself for two touchdown passes to retake the advantage.

The Buffalo defense also came up big in crucial moments to prevent Miami from completing their comeback and ensured that the Bills finished with the 34-31 win at Highmark Stadium. In what was one of their most thrilling matches of the season, Allen and his team showed grit and resilience under pressure when it mattered most.

The Miami Dolphins faced a difficult situation on Sunday when they had to line up with a third-string quarterback going into the start of their game. With Tua Tagovailoa not cleared from concussion protocol and Teddy Bridgewater dealing with an injury, Skylar Thompson was called upon to do the job for his team.

Bills Outlast Dolphins in Wild Card

Allen had an impressive performance with His 23 of 39 passing for 352 yards and three touchdown passes, despite the two interceptions and a fumble he lost that resulted in a touchdown for the Dolphins. It didn’t stop there though. Two Buffalo wide receivers, Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis, both had more than 100 yards receiving with Diggs at 114 and Davis at 113 with one touchdown catch. Devin Singletary led Buffalo with 41 yards on nine carries on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Fins who are missing their starting Quarterback (Tua Tagovailoa), still put on a show as they overcome a 17-point lead before half-time and briefly even steal the lead in the third period. But that’s the last time that had it. Buffalo surged back and never let them pass again.

Skylar Thompson threw for 220 yards on 18-of-45 passing along with a touchdown pass and two interceptions of his own. The Dolphins Tyreek Hill had seven catches for 69 yards while Salvon Ahmed was limited to three catches for only four yards.

The Fins managed to cover the double-digit spread in from FL sportsbooks, but will not advance. It has been a great season for the Fins but injuries are uncontrollable and staying healthy is crucial if they want to have a deeper playoff run.

What’s Next For The Bills?

The Bills will face the Kansas City Chiefs next week for the AFC Divisional round. the Bills will visit Arrowhead Stadium again and will try to repeat the conclusion in week 6 where they prevail as Josh Allen threw a 14 Yd pass to Dawson Knox and secured 4 point lead in the fourth quarter.
