Bills Win First Home Game
The Buffalo Bills have won their first prime time home game since the opener of the 2000 season by holding off the Miami Dolphins 19-14. Both AFC East teams are 4-6.
Leodis McKelvin scored on a 79-yard punt return and the Bills oft-maligned defense finally flexed its muscles. Safety Jairus Byrd recovered a fumble and made a diving interception. Bryan Scott sealed the win with an interception to end the Dolphins' final drive. Mario Williams had one of three sacks for a Buffalo defense that limited the Ryan Tannehill-led Dolphins to 184 yards. That was enough to make up for a Buffalo offense that settled for Rian Lindell's four field goals on four drives into the red zone. That ends the Bills' three-game losing streak.
