Tua being let back in the game is a huge head scratcher. He was visibly incoherent w altered motor skills on the field. That is a mandatory deadline . 


Wouldn’t be surprised to see him miss next week with some sort of vague “UBI”

After that phantom Benford hold, refs let all these corners play handsy today. That really helped Miami with their man coverage.

Looked like holding to me live, just was surprised that they called it given that they weren't calling any of the defensive penalties late.

 

EDIT: I may have the wrong hold, apologies. I'm referring to one on last drive

Agreed. If I was neutral, that game would tell me that in the long run the Bills are the stronger team, probably by a good amount.

 

BUT, I give Miami's defense a lot of credit. They were on the field forever and they still really played tough all day. They were hitting, covering. They made life difficult for Josh who gutted it out but clearly didn't have his usual magic. Miami is going to make some noise. They seem like a scrappy wild card team to me. And they deserve a lot of credit for hanging in that game and making plays. Sure the Bills missed some opportunities. But so did the Dolphins. They dropped a few potential interceptions.

 

Anyway, very difficult to watch. Can't say I enjoyed it. But it was just one of those weird games that happen pretty regularly in the NFL. Too bad we couldn't get a chance for a kick at the end. But given the week we've had, kind of fitting. I plan to forget this past week immediately.

They did play well defensively, no doubt. I wonder if teams will be able to copy what they did, and if so will that be effective in a 'regular' game at normal temps.

 

Not to harp on the heat but this really was a one off sort of game. There's a reason even the mighty Pats at the height of their powers had trouble playing there in September.

 

I do worry about getting healthy in time for the Ravens. Lamar is playing out of his mind, like he expects a billion dollars per year with his new contract. They came up with a way to stop him last time we played so hopefully we can slow him down next week

I'm disappointed.  I think the Bills could have won if any of a number of things had happened, and they could have happened easily.  Factors in the loss include the injuries, (of course) the heat and a few key plays.  The early fumble in which Buffalo gave up the football deep in their own territory, Milano's failure to catch the ball on a potential pick six, are just two of the key plays.   I think the rematch will look very different.  If Buffalo is reasonably healthy at that point, I think they win decisively.

Hope the dolphins keep winning and we get them in playoffs early. If we get healthy I still much rather see the fins in their house than chiefs chargers or ravens in the post season.

I want no part of the phins early in the playoffs (late I'd take all day)

 

Not because of talent level but because they are dirty, cheap late shots (Wilkins) constantly turning Allen's ankles. They take a lot of liberties out there

It's a travesty that this game was played under these conditions.  You want to play in Miami in September?  Play the game at night.  And how the hell does Miami get their bench in the shade for the entire game while the visiting team is in full sun?  Short week.  Ridiculous number of injuries.  Unbelievable amount of missing opportunities (missed FG attempt at end of half; dropped pick 6 by Milano; blown defensive call on 3rd and 22; missed FG; dumb call on 2nd and goal from the one; Allen missing McKenzie on fourth down when he hits that throw 9 out of 10 times; blown FG attempt at end of game).  Any question that Buffalo is a far superior team to Miami?  Looking forward to seeing them in December in Buffalo.  It is disturbing to continue to lose close games that are eminently winnable.

For the record, I’m still dying at Ken Dorsey losing it 

How freaking hilarious was that?! Gotta love the passion. Dude cares arguably more than some of the players. 

 

Can someone make a "that's my psychopath" tshirt with him losing it?

I'm not even pissed. They should have lost by a lot with all the issues. This team is amazingly deep and talented to almost overcome all of that.

I hear what you're saying, but we should have won. Missed easy FG, dropped pick 6, turnover at our 10, 2nd and goal at the one and no score...
