Led by a dominant defensive performance, the Miami Dolphins remain the only unbeaten team in the AFC after defeating division foes, the Buffalo Bills, in a thrilling 21-19 victory at Hard Rock Stadium. After scoring 31 points and 41 points in each of their first two games, the Buffalo Bills could only put up 19 points against the Miami Dolphins defense.
The Dolphins were led by second-year superstar safety Jevon Holland who knocked the ball out of Josh Allen’s hands to cause a fumble that would be recovered by another standout performer for Miami, newly acquired Melvin Ingram, who had a phenomenal game.
Some other standouts on the Dolphins defense include Christian Wilkins, who once again was the anchor of the Dolphins defensive line, and 4-year linebacker Jerome Baker who had arguably his best game of the season. All in all, every member of that Miami Dolphins defense did a tremendous job of slowing down the “Super Bowl favorites.” The best moment of the game for this defense came when they shut down the Bills on the game’s final drive to secure Miami’s win.
Another viral moment came towards the end of the ballgame when Dolphins punter Thomas Morstead’s punted ball hit the butt of wide receiver Trent Sherfield; the moment has been so talked about that even toilet paper brand “Charmin” chimed in.

As for the offensive side of the ball, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa once again did a terrific job of tossing the rock, including two huge throws, one going to River Cracraft on a perfectly thrown ball in tight coverage for a touchdown and the other to the “penguin” himself, Jaylen Waddle on a 45-yard dime which came on a 3rd and 22 and would later lead to a three-yard rushing touchdown by Chase Edmonds for the game-winning score. Edmonds, as previously mentioned, scored twice in the contest, having a big bounce-back performance after not being their primary back in their previous game against the Ravens.
First-year head coach Mike McDaniel again did a tremendous job, and he and his staff should be highly praised for their work and the changes they have already made to this team in such a short amount of time.
The undefeated Dolphins will look to get another W on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals in their first primetime game of the season coming on Thursday Night Football at 8:15 pm ET on Prime Video.
After a 400-yard throwing day for their superstar QB, Josh Allen, the Bills may look to emphasize more of a running game to help their young gunslinger out as they take on the Baltimore Ravens next week on the road in Baltimore.
