Bills vs. Dolphins: blocked punt leads to Buffalo lead

The Bills used a special teams penalty and blocked punt to take the lead.

The Buffalo Bills are down their top two receivers and their top running back is limited. They’ve had two huge special teams plays to make up for a subpar offensive performance to this point. Tyrod Taylor put the Bills into the end zone for a 10-3 lead.

On a punt, the Miami Dolphins pulled down a rusher leading to a re-kick. On the ensuing punt, Lerentee McCray split the blockers to get his hand on the punt. While it made it past the line of scrimmage, Buffalo still was able to get the ball at Miami’s 40-yard line.

The best play on the drive until the score was a 13-yard pass to Reggie Bush, playing in the slot due to the aforementioned injuries to Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. A few plays later, Taylor faked a handoff to Bush going left and when Cameron Wake stormed down the line, he pulled the ball out and followed Charles Clay to the end zone. Replay confirmed that Taylor broke the plane before he fumbled the ball.
