C.J. Spiller had a nice game as the lead back of the Bills.
Too little, too late? Perhaps, but it's always nice to be on the receiving end of a win.
The Buffalo Bills offense seemingly thought that the game ended at halftime, but the defense actually did their job and led the Bills to victory.
With the 19-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Bills' record is now 1-3 within the AFC East and 4-6 overall.
Before the Bills move on to their game against the Indianapolis Colts, let's take a look at tonight's winners and losers!
Lindell was perfect against the Dolphins.
No one thrived more thanks to Chan Gailey's ineptness than Rian Lindell.
In the first half alone, Lindell kicked four field goals and chipped in an extra point.
As a reward, the Bills gave Lindell the second half off.
Everyone wants to see touchdowns, but for one game, Lindell did enough scoring to win the game for the Bills.
McKelvin showed his explosive return skills early against the Dolphins.
The Ralph was rocking tonight and Leodis McKelvin brought them to a fever pitch.
After the Bills defense forced a three-and-out from the Miami Dolphins, Brandon Fields punted the ball to the Bills' 21-yard line.
McKelvin did the rest and dazzled the crowd with a brilliant 79-yard return. It was the only touchdown scored by the Bills and a major momentum boost for the Bills.
McKelvin, in a contract year, is giving the team plenty to consider. While McKelvin will never be the shutdown cornerback they had hoped for, his ability as a returner cannot be ignored.
Byrd celebrates after his impressive interception.
When the Bills offense could not finish off the Dolphins, Jairus Byrd and Bryan Scott came up big for the Buffalo Bills.
With two minutes remaining in the game, Ryan Tannehill attempted a deep pass to Davone Bess. Byrd, known for his ball-hawking ability, read the quarterback and made an absolutely phenomenal diving interception.
Byrd ended the night with four total tackles, an interception, forced fumble and two passes defensed.
Byrd's interception should have sealed the game, but instead, the offense went three-and-out, forcing them to punt with a minute and a half to go.
With many Bills fans expecting the worst, Scott came up with the game-sealing interception. Scott was in the right place at the right time and intercepted a poorly thrown pass from Tannehill.
The Bills defense has not had much success this season in terms of creating turnovers, but against the Dolphins, they had two huge interceptions when they needed them the most.
Don't be surprised if Mario Williams finishes with double-digit sacks this year.
I could award each defensive line player their own slide tonight. I don't like to use the word dominating, but the Bills defensive line absolutely dominated the Dolphins offensive line.
Mario Williams notched sack 5.5 of the season and finished with four tackles. He stopped two plays in the backfield and applied constant pressure there.
Kyle Moore finished with two tackles and a sack. His sack was on a play where he was also called for a 15-yard face-mask penalty, but it's a sack nonetheless. Most importantly, no player on the line pressured Tannehill more than Moore on Thursday night.
Marcell Dareus appears to be waking from his slumber. Dareus ended the night with four tackles. Watching the game live, Dareus won his one-on-one battle consistently against the Dolphins. Consistency is the one thing the Bills have not seen out of Dareus, so it was a very encouraging sign.
Kyle Williams, the heart and soul of the defensive line, finished with two tackles. One of the tackles came on a play where he blew by Richie Incognito and stopped Reggie Bush in the backfield for a loss of four yards.
Last, even Shawne Merriman turned back the clock for a night. Merriman finished the game with two tackles and a sack of Tannehill. Pressure from Moore led Tannehill into the arms of Merriman and allowed Merriman to dust off his "Lights Out" celebration.
Overall, it was an outstanding night for the Buffalo Bills defensive line.
Stevie Johnson consistently won his battles against Dolphins' defensive backs.
Stevie Johnson's stats may not blow you away, but tonight he showed a lot of fire on the field.
Johnson finished with six receptions for 79 yards. He had as many receptions as Donald Jones, Scott Chandler and T.J. Graham combined while adding more yards than the three.
Johnson was winning his one-on-one matchup all night long and had Fitzpatrick looked his way a few more times, he could have easily eclipsed the 100-yard mark.
My favorite part of Johnson's night came right before halftime. With nine seconds to go, Fitzpatrick threw the ball to Johnson. It was clear that Sean Smith had interfered with Johnson and while the back judge threw the flag, Johnson got into the face of the closest official.
The official told Johnson that the back judge had thrown a flag, but Johnson let the referee know that he should have thrown a flag as he was the closest to the play.
After the Patriots game, it was nice to see a Bills player let the referees know of their frustration.
Gailey should be happy with his victory, but he didn't do a good job in the red zone.
This game should have been a blowout.
Fans should have been changing the channels to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League or other popular shows.
Instead, Bills fans had to sweat it out late against a Dolphins team that was outplayed all game long.
Do the players deserve some of the blame for not scoring touchdowns? Absolutely, but the brunt of my anger is at Gailey for his play-calling and personnel moves.
Tashard Choice playing in many important third-down situations is simply inexcusable. Choice had no business being on the field in short-run situations. I don't care how big C.J. Spiller is; he's your star back so use him!
Choice also came up short in the passing game where he alligator-armed a pass thrown to him on third down. Hopefully, Thursday's game against the Dolphins is the last we see of Choice for more than one or two plays.
On third and short, why would you send C.J. Spiller out as a wide receiver and leave Fitzpatrick alone in the backfield? It basically told the Dolphins you planned on passing and sure enough, they stopped the Bills.
Last, if you want to get the ball to Scott Chandler, why on earth would you decide to throw a slant his way?
Reshad Jones, the Dolphins safety, who was covering Chandler is 6'1". Chandler is 6'7". Call a play where you throw it up and let Chandler use his height to his advantage.
I could go on, but I shouldn't be getting this worked up after a win.
Bottom line: if Gailey doesn't start calling better plays, he'll be looking for work sooner rather than later.
