The Buffalo Bills had plenty of chances to win their Week 3 game in Miami against the Dolphins, despite mounting injuries and player departures due to cramp, but ended up trailing 21-19 at Hard Rock Stadium.
Josh Allen played a good game and tried hard to lead the Bills to victory, but too many mistakes got in the way; including Allen jumping a pass to an open Isaiah McKenzie on 4th down when the Bills tried to take the lead late in the 4th quarter.
Allen completed 42 of 63 passes for 400 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 47 yards and accounted for 80% of the Bills’ offensive production against the Dolphins.
Allen didn’t like a few things the Dolphins defensemen did on Sunday, including something from defensive tackle Christian Wilkins when Allen ripped off his helmet and was called for a personal foul.
Edge rusher Melvin Ingram also had a dodgy play, when he tried to kick Allen on a passing rush.

Ingram clearly tries to kick Allen when the ball is released, as left tackle Dion Dawkins is pushed back into Allen’s blindside.
There’s no doubt the Dolphins tried to get under the Bills’ skin and it worked to some degree, as well as the heat, which caused several players on both teams to cramp, but especially Buffalo.
Allen had post-game X-rays on his right hand, but according to Allen and head coach Sean McDermott, he will be fine.
Hopefully safety Jordan Poyer and center Mitch Morse can be back for next week’s game in Baltimore against the Ravens, and the injuries sustained today won’t carry over into Week 4.
