Bills vs. Dolphins live chat, 2015 NFL Week 9: second half

The Bills are up 19-7. Can they keep the pressure on the Dolphins?

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills got off to a fast start and despite the Miami Dolphins fighting back, Buffalo leads 19-7 as they enter the second half. Miami will get the ball to start the third quarter.

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.
