Dolphins 24, Bills 10: Lackluster Buffalo Effort May Cost Jobs

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills fell flat on their faces for the second week in a row, losing 24-10 to the Miami Dolphins.

The Buffalo Bills mailed it in again and seriously put in question the future of one Thomas Chandler Gailey, Jr. as the head coach of the team in 2013. With their tenth loss of the season, Buffalo has guaranteed they won't improve on their record from a year ago.

The Bills made several key mistakes throughout the game. Turnovers, penalties, and missed opportunities plagued Buffalo. It began in the first quarter when Stevie Johnson fumbled away a red zone opportunity. He would later drop a touchdown pass, as well. Dorin Dickerson also lost a fumble in the third quarter and "The Fitzpatrick" - a late-game interception to seal the fate of the game - befell the Buffalo Bills once again.

C.J. Spiller had a great day, busting a 61-yard run in the second quarter. He finished with 138 yards on 22 carries and 35 yards on four catches. Ryan Fitzpatrick had 240 yards with a touchdown and the late pick.

The Miami Dolphins utilized the read-option effectively in the second and third quarters to built a 24-3 lead. Reggie Bush scored all three touchdowns - one on the ground and two on short passes. Marcell Dareus had two sacks on the day while Alex Carrington blocked a field goal attempt.

Dorin Dickerson was carted off late in the fourth quarter with an air cast on his leg while Buffalo lost Scott Chandler and Da'Norris Searcy, as well, in the game. They could lose much more as the lack of desire for the second straight week may cost many of them their jobs in addition to Gailey.
