(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — The Buffalo Bills (4-6) rode a Leodis McKelvin punt return, and some good defense to a 19-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins (4-6).
The Bills defense forced three Dolphins turnovers and 184 total yards.
“There’s three primetime games a week,” Bills head coach Chan Gailey said when talking about the performance of his teams’ defense. “For them to play the way they played, I believe that’s something we can build on.”
Leodis McKelvin got the scoring started early. Just 90 seconds into the game, he returned a Brandon Fields punt 79 yards for the games opening touchdown.
Rian Lindell hit four field goals to account for the rest of the Bills’ scoring.
C.J. Spiller rushed for 91 yards on 22 carries for the Bills.
The Dolphins had a chance to win the game, but Jairus Byrd intercepted Ryan Tannehill’s pass at the Bill’s 35 with 1:54 remaining to play, pretty much sealing the deal.
