Buffalo Bills 34, Miami Dolphins 31 – The Denver Post


Quick thoughts from South Florida Sun Sentinel staffers on the Dolphins’ loss to the Buffalo Bills at Highmark Stadium on Sunday in their wild-card playoff game:

Chris Perkins, Dolphins Columnist

Excellent effort by the Dolphins in their first playoff game since the 2016 season. Rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson played courageously, as did his teammates. The Dolphins absorbed the early body shots and a 17-0 deficit to make this one of the most memorable games in years. Nice job. They came up short, but good effort.

Keven Lerner, Assistant Sports Editor

The Dolphins had a number of players step up, but some awful dropped passes that hurt their young quarterback. Still, such a game effort from which to jump into the 2023 season.

Steve Svekis, Sports Senior Content Editor

What an incredible effort by so many player. However, it was ultimately marred by coach Mike McDaniel’s continuing difficulties managing the second half of games. In this case, all three timeouts torched to avoid delay of game flags. Such an ugly end of — incredibly — the second loss in a month in wintry Buffalo from which a ton of positives could be taken heading into next season.
