Bills fall in overtime to Dolphins (full coverage)

In overtime the Bills had a chance to go ahead on a 45-yard field goal, but Dan Carpenter’s attempt went wide right. Three possessions later Miami got a 57-yard run down the left sideline from Jay Ajayi to set up a game-winning 27-yard field goal to life the Dolphins over Buffalo 34-31, ending the Bills slim playoff hopes.

Buffalo trailed for the entire game in regulation until 1:20 remaining when Charles Clay pulled in a seven-yard touchdown catch. But Miami forced overtime with an improbable 55-yard field goal from Andrew Franks with six seconds left. Full recap and stats at BuffaloBills.com
