Bills clinch playoff berth as Josh Allen fuels win over Dolphins

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- As the Miami Dolphins' offense found life in the third quarter Saturday night, their AFC East showdown against the Buffalo Bills seemed destined to go down to the wire as the anticipated snowstorm moved in.

A defensive pass interference call put the Bills at the Dolphins' 13 with 45 seconds left, and Tyler Bass converted a 25-yard field goal as Buffalo pulled out a 32-29 victory to clinch a playoff berth.

Josh Allen threw three TD passes in the first half to put Buffalo up 21-13, but Tua Tagovailoa threw two TD passes, including a 67-yarder to Jaylen Waddle, in the third quarter as Miami took a 26-21 lead to set up a wild ending.
