Bills complete AFC East comeback, win 21-14

The Buffalo Bills have come back from the dead in the AFC East and secured another division crown with a 21-14 win over the fading Miami Dolphins.

Just five weeks back the Bills looked dead and buried, but a slump from Miami, losing to the Titans and Ravens gave Buffalo a chance at the division crown heading into this week 18 showdown.

And the game almost mirrored the season, as the Dolphins lead at half-time only to be blanked by the Bills in the second half who scored 14 unanswered for the win.

Bills win division and two seed

Josh Allen threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for another 67 as he took control of the game and far eclipsed the Dolphins Tua Tagovailoa.

“What a resilient group,” said Allen. “So proud of our guys. They battled their tails off. The final couple of drives I felt we found a groove on the offensive side of the ball. The ball was coming out of my hands the best all year.”

Bills head coach Sean McDermott secured his fourth consecutive AFC East crown with the win. The Bills host the Steelers in next weeks wildcard round.
