The Dolphins Beat the Bills in an AFC East Battle

On a warm December day at Hard Rock Stadium, the Miami Dolphins beat the Bills keeping their playoff hopes alive for another week in an AFC East battle. Unlike the Miami vs. Jets game, there was plenty of action and touchdowns with this game. Something a sports photographer me likes a lot.

This was my first time seeing Bills’ rookie QB, Josh Allen in action and he didn’t disappoint. I knew him as a gunslinger in college, but he has a set of wheels on him. He was making defenders like Cam Wake looks silly as he would evade their tackles and run for big gains. I think he was the Bills leading rusher that game as well.

It was also the alumni game for Miami so both teams dressed in their old school uniforms which was great to see. Miami had their former players and cheerleaders out there as well coming back for the reunion.
