Buffalo Bills extend winning streak vs. Miami to seven

The streak is Buffalo’s longest vs. one opponent since winning ten in a row over the Bengals

The first time Josh Allen quarterbacked the Buffalo Bills against the Miami Dolphins, on Dec. 2, 2018, he did enough to lead Buffalo to victory, but tight end Charles Clay dropped a touchdown pass and the Bills fell 21-17.

Since then, the AFC East rivalry has been all one-sided, with Buffalo earning seven straight wins over Miami, including a 26-11 triumph Sunday in a Week 8 clash at Highmark Stadium. With the win, the Bills now have their longest winning streak ever against the Dolphins, surpassing a six-game winning streak during the 1987, 1988, and 1989 seasons.

During the current winning streak, Buffalo has outscored Miami by 258-123, an average margin of victory of 19.3 points per game. The Bills are scoring nearly 37 points per game while giving up only 17.6 points per game over their last seven clashes with the Phins.

The Bills have also handled the Dolphins in each of the last five home games, with Miami’s last win in Orchard Park coming in Week 16 of the 2016 season.

The Bills and Dolphins have concluded their matchups for the 2021 season, meaning Buffalo will have to wait until 2022 to try and extend its run of victories over the Dolphins.

Buffalo’s current streak of dominance against Miami is the team’s fifth-longest against one team in franchise history. The record? Buffalo once posted ten consecutive victories against the Cincinnati Bengals, beginning with a 24-7 home win on Nov. 26, 1989, and running through a 49-31 trouncing on Nov. 21, 2010 in Cincinnati.

Oh, and if Clay had caught that and the Bills had won back in 2018, Buffalo would be on a 10-game winning streak against Miami, tying their record.
