Bills need less than 10 minutes to take 14-0 lead over Dolphins

AFC Wild Card Playoffs - Miami Dolphins v Buffalo Bills

The Bills were 14-point favorites today against the Dolphins. It took them less than 10 minutes to take a 14-point lead.

After James Cook ran for a touchdown, the Bills lead 14-0 in the first quarter.

The Bills’ touchdown drive was set up by a bad pass by Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson, which Buffalo’s Dean Marlowe intercepted. Thompson is looking very much like the seventh-round rookie he is — and unlike another seventh-round rookie, 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who showed yesterday how unusual a seventh-round rookie he is.

We saw yesterday with the Jaguars’ comeback victory that no NFL game is over in the first quarter, but this game is starting to feel that way.

  1. Probably an even worse blowout than the other game involving a #7 seed. And no doubt we’ll have #8 seeds stuck in before long.

  2. Hard to be competitive with a 3rd string QB and 3rd string DBs and make shift OL. Buffalo is built to win the SB but needs to play better against better teams. If this was KC or Cincy it wouldn’t be a blow out like it is.

  3. Love the Bills and the Mafia (Packers fan ) minus one awful lying human being called beasley .

  4. I can see the Bills, no matter what the score, keep pouring it on after yesterday’s Jaguars win.

  5. The Dolphin players know they don’t have a chance to win with Thompson as their quarterback.

  6. The back end seeds are all the same kind of team. Heck, even some division winners like Jax and TB aren’t your usual division winner quality.

    Horrible product. No debate about that. Goodell can lie all day long about his legendary ratings. No one is going to believe what he tries to sell.

  7. Can someone explain to me how Mike McDaniel is an upgrade to Brian Flores? The last 2 seasons under Flores, the Dolphins were 10-6 & 9-8; this year, the Dolphins are 9-8.

  8. This is why I didn’t care if the Dolphins got into the playoffs instead the Pats. The Bills were going to do this to either one of us.

  9. Dolphins are down to 3rd string guys all over the field and they’re still giving the pre-season super bowl champs a fight

    Excuses, excuses. Next man up.

  11. 20-17 Bills going into halftime.
    After that early start Buffalo appears fortunate to not be trailing. If Waddle hadn’t drop those two deep passes this would have been a very different game.
    Still expect the Bills to win, but the injury issues in their secondary are a real concern.

  12. Refs making their impact like everyone outside Buffalo figured. Lower the crown of a helmet into a defenseless receiver, negated because the ball partially deflected it. That’s gotta be one of the special new rules. Josh Allen instigates a shoving match after the play is over, no penalty on him, only offsetting penalties on 2 other guys. And no additional penalty on the bills player that paraded a helmet around or on the guy that dropped a wwe style elbow to the head of the dolphins player.

  13. And the Dolphins needed less than 10 minutes to take it back, so the story goes. Good luck to both teams. Will have to wait and see how this one ends.

    Plenty of reasons to hate on Goodell but 82 of the top 100 broadcast shows for all shows (not just sports) in 2022 were NFL games, including 19 of the top 20. The ratings are real.
