Buffalo got on the board first in an unorthodox way, as Ryan Tannehill saw a snap fly past him through the back of the end zone for a safety. LeSean McCoy took the ensuing drive to the house with a 48-yard touchdown run to make it 9-0 and the rout was on. Except it wasn't.
Miami scored next on a punishing drive, gaining short chunks of yards to wear down the Bills defense and close the gap to 9-7. After a Dan Carpenter field goal made it 12-7, a big play to Sammy Watkins put the Bills in position for another score and Karlos Williams barely crossed the goal line before fumbling to make it 19-7.
On the final drive of the first half, Miami marched down the field but poor time management left them with one play from the one-yard line. Dan Campbell opted for a chance at the touchdown and Stephon Gilmore bailed out the Bills defense.
It's been fun. Hopefully it will stay fun.
