Dolphins fall just short in wild-card playoff upset of Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel’s team showed resilience after his injury-depleted group fell short in a 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills in a wild-card playoff. The AFC’s seventh-seeded Dolphins leaned on their defense to offset an offense missing numerous starters, including quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Miami’s defense forced three turnovers, which led directly to 18 points, including Zach Sieler returning a fumble for a touchdown. Miami was making its first playoff appearance since 2016, and has lost five straight postseason games.
