The Dolphins managed to kick a field goal on the following drive
By Ryan Gaydos
After Josh Allen intercepted Xavien Howard’s pass in the second quarter, players from the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins got into a fight.
Six minutes into the first half, the incident took place. Near the end zone, Allen attempted a very long pass, which Howard intercepted. After snatching the ball away from wide receiver John Brown, the cornerback ran it 49 yards.
During the run back, Allen appeared to engage with Dolphins defensive lineman Christian Wilkins. The two pushed each other back and forth when Bills offensive lineman Matt Morse came over to protect his quarterback. Buffalo players began to give Wilkins the business and penalty flags were thrown.
Luckily, for both teams, nobody was ejected. Wilkins and Morse were each given unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for the affair. The penalties offset and Miami took over at the Bills’ 48-yard line.
At the time, Miami was down 17-3. Miami kicker Jason Sanders made another field goal at the end of the Dolphins’ series to make it 17-6.
The Dolphins were forced to start third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson as Tua Tagovailoa wasn’t cleared from concussion protocol to play. Teddy Bridgewater was also dealing with an injury and wasn’t exactly at 100%.
Allen started to pick on the Dolphins early. He found Dawson Knox in the first quarter for a 6-yard touchdown. James Cook followed up with a 12-yard rushing touchdown.
