Thursday Night Football Recap: Dolphins 14 – Bills 19
In a battle of below .500 teams, the Buffalo Bills defeated the Miami Dolphins 19-14 on Thursday Night Football. The Dolphins suddenly find themselves with three straight losses and a 4-6 record. The Bills snapped a three game losing streak to improve to 4-6.
From a fantasy perspective, rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was again a disappointment with just one touchdown and two interceptions. There was some hype over Tannehill a few weeks ago, but that has now disappeared. The only Dolphins player that displayed any fantasy value was wide receiver Devonne Bess. Bess had six catches, one of which was for a touchdown. What happened to running back Reggie Bush? He rushed for just 20 yards on ten carries. We recommend sitting Bush until the Dolphins figure out their offensive woes.
The Bills offense was actually worse than the Dolphins. The Bills offense was unable to get into the end zone. The Bills lone touchdown came on a 79-yard punt return from Leodis McKelvin. The real fantasy star of this game was Bills kicker Ryan Lindell. Lindell had four field goals and one extra point.
