Bush Runs Though the Bills as Miami Tops Buffalo 30-23

The Dolphins run offense was the Bills downfall on Sunday at home, as the team dropped their 7th straight, an awful 30-23 setback to Miami.

The Bills allowed former Saints running back Reggie Bush to run for a career-high 203 yards and a touchdown, as the Dolphins built a 23-7 lead and went on for the win.

The loss for the Bills drops them to 5-9, the same record as the Dolphins who started the year at 4-1.

Looking at a 5-11 season if they can’t manage a win in the next two weeks, the Bills are in jeopardy of finishing last in the division for a fourth straight season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 31-of-47 passes for 316 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions for the Bills (5-9), who have lost seven in a row.

C.J. Spiller carried the ball 12 times for 91 yards and a score. He also caught nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown.

About the only credit the Bills can get is making it a game in the end, but it came after Bush ripped off a 76-yard TD run to give the Dolphins a 30-13 lead.

Fitzpatrick led an eight- play, 67-yard scoring drive. David Nelson caught a 21-yard pass to move the ball to the Miami 33. Spiller added a 19-yard catch two plays later. Derek Hagan ended the march with a two-yard TD catch to make it 30-20 with 2:27 to play.

After recovering an onsides kick, the Bills had to settle for a 34-yard Rayner field goal with 1:22 to go. Another onsides kick did not work.

Buffalo got the ball back with 16 seconds remaining, but could do nothing on the last play of the game.

Next week the Bills will host Tim Tebow and the Broncos at 1pm.
