The Miami Dolphins were one of two teams on Sunday to pull off a win under their recently appointed interim head coaches. Todd Bowles replaced Tony Sparano for the Dolphins, and he made his coaching debut in Buffalo today. Miami won the game by a final score of 30-23, a score that makes the game look a little closer than it really was.
Matt More completed 10 of 20 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns. His performance was overshadowed by Reggie Bush, who rushed for 203 yards and a touchdown. It was the third-highest single-game rushing total in Dolphins history. The highlight of Bush's day was a fourth quarter, 76-yard touchdown run, in which he drew a flag for his home plate slide through the end zone.
Buffalo failed to win again, for the seventh game in a row. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdowns to go with three interceptions that proved to be too much for the Bills to overcome. Running back C.J. Spiller had a solid day. Spiller had 91 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 attempts. He also caught nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown.
