Moore, Dolphins look to continue surge vs. Bills

He set up the Franks' winning field goal with a 57-yard on the first play of the drive.

Taylor completed 26 of 39 passes for a career-high 329 yards and three touchdowns. The Bills can be eliminated from the playoffs even if they win, and missing out on the playoffs for a second consecutive season could result in the dismissal of head coach Rex Ryan.

Ajayi rushed for 529 yards during the first three contests of the six-game winning streak that turned around the Dolphins' season.

The Dolphins beat the Bills 34-31 in overtime Saturday.

Consider the Bills had a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and a 100-yard receiver in the same game for the first time since 2010.

The Bills set a franchise record with 589 yards of offense.

Franks had tied the game from 55 yards out, and he won it with the 27-yard attempt. But Buffalo responded once more, thanks to a big gain from Taylor to Watkins followed by an 18-yard pass to pay dirt from Taylor to Clay. After the Jets allowed 111 yards to Ajayi in that Week 9 game, they limited Miami's feature back to only 51 yards and a 2.68 yard per carry average in Week 15. The Bills must decide by March whether to pick up the option on a five-year, $90 million contract extension that guarantees Taylor more than $30 million over the first two seasons. Instead, when Santa Claus was passing over the Bills game on his sleigh, he saw such a dysfunctional team fielded on New Era Field, Santa crashed down into the Bills parking lot!

The Bills got on the scoreboard with 5:06 left in the second quarter when Tyrod Taylor connected with Sammy Watkins on a 38-yard touchdown that cut Miami's lead down to 14-7.

Miami had a chance to tack on at the end of the half, but Matt Moore threw an ill-advised pass into the end zone which Corey White picked off, sending the Bills into intermission trailing just 14-7. The Dolphins had second-and-10 at the Buffalo 25 when Moore forced a pass in the end zone to Kenny Stills.

Matt Moore, meanwhile was awful in the first half.

In overtime, Dan Carpenter missed a 45-yard field goal to start the train rolling the wrong way.
