With the win, Buffalo improves to 11-3 and clinches a playoff berth. Meanwhile, Miami falls to 8-6 and is in the thick of the AFC wild-card race.
Offensive spotlight: Tyreek Hill has been the star receiver all season for the Dolphins, but Saturday night, Jaylen Waddle filled that role. The second-year speedster from Alabama caught three of his six targets for 114 yards and a touchdown, with a 135.4 passer rating when targeted.

Defensive spotlight: As one can imagine, it’s not easy covering the speed that the Dolphins have at wide receiver. Bills star corner Tre’Davious White did a terrific job regardless. The sixth-year corner only allowed three catches on eight targets and forced two incompletions as well.
Rookie spotlight: Miami’s Kader Kohou continues to look like one of the biggest steals of the 2022 NFL Draft. The undrafted cornerback from Texas A&M-Commerce had an 80.3 grade on first review against the Bills. He only allowed 0.52 yards per coverage snap against the Bills, including a coverage stop and a forced incompletion as well.
Offensive line spotlight: The Dolphins offensive line did an excellent job of protecting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Miami’s front-five only gave up four pressures on 33 pass-blocking snaps. Offensive tackle Terron Armstead, guard Robert Jones and center Connor Williams had a clean sheet on the night with no pressures allowed.
