A 45-yard touchdown run by rookie running back Kenyan Drake doubles the Miami lead and puts them over 100 yards on the ground early in the 2nd quarter.
Buffalo’s offense again moves the ball a bit, but once again they walk away with no points, as Mike Gillislee is stuffed on a 4th & 1 from the Dolphins’ 39.
The Bills continue to move the ball, and this time they cash it in for 7, as Tyrod Taylor follows a 23-yard scramble on 3rd & long with a 38-yard strike to Sammy Watkins a few plays later. (14-7 Miami)
Late in the half the Dolphins begin a drive in Bills territory, but Corey White intercepts a Matt Moore pass in the end zone to keep Buffalo within 7.
