ABOUT THE BILLS (8-7): LeSean McCoy resides fourth in the league in rushing with 1,128 yards, although the six-time Pro Bowl selection was limited to just 50 yards on 20 carries in Buffalo's 24-16 win over Miami on December 17. They will travel to Jacksonville next weekend.
The 29-year-old McCoy is far and away Buffalo's most potent offensive weapon.
It took one of the most miraculous plays of the season for the Bengals to push the Bills into the playoffs, but the same luck that once seemed to work against Buffalo instead turned in their favor. O'Leary also reached a career milestone of sorts with his 322 receiving yards a career high.
David Fales' interception on his final drive might have sealed the Dolphins fate in this contest but he played well after filling in for embattled veteran quarterback Jay Cutler following his first drive.
Jameis Winston threw for 363 yards, including a 39-yard scoring pass to Chris Godwin with nine seconds remaining, to help Tampa Bay snap a five-game losing streak with a victory over visiting New Orleans. He had 424 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in the team's seven losses. The whistle was already blown, I already scored the touchdown.
The fight and Sunday's game was a metaphor for the Dolphins disappointing season.
The Ravens took their first lead, 27-24, on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Mike Wallace with 8:48 left in the game.
It was a frustrating end to a frustrating season for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. One of the things that stand out, that brought a tear to my eye, was when they showed me the reaction of fans at different restaurants and different get together places that were going on out there.
Drake became involved in a wrestling match in the bottom of a pile, and when Bills defensive end Ryan Davis' helmet came off, Drake picked it up and threw it 20 yards.
Williams heads into 2018 as an unrestricted free agent, leaving Drake as the Dolphins' clear No. 1 running back as Miami begins to assess its offseason options.
"I didn't disrespect the official", Landry said. In those final moments, when the Dolphins closed to within six and then recovered the onside kick, you had to wonder whether an exasperating season could somehow end in an exhilarating manner.
Steelers rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster helped keep the Browns winless with a 96-yard kickoff return that was ultimately the game-winning score. Bills CB Shareece Wright (concussion) sat out.
"Dear [Bengals]", the Bills wrote in a tweet after the game.
The AFC East champion Patriots wrapped up their regular season at 13-3 to secure the conference's top spot for a second consecutive season and the seventh time overall.
