Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills share one of the more interesting rivalries in the league, as there are stark characteristic differences between the cities of Miami and Buffalo, especially in climate and culture. The rivalry was extremely lopsided in favor of Miami during the 1970s, as the Dolphins won all 20 games against the Bills during that decade. Fortunes changed in the 1980s and 1990s when Jim Kelly became the Bills’ starting quarterback. Though both teams were extremely dominant during that period, the Bills ultimately held the edge and dominated the Dolphins during their four playoff match-ups in the 1990s, with the Dolphins’ only playoff win coming after Kelly’s retirement. With the rise of Tom Brady and the Patriots during the 2000s and the retirements of Kelly and Dolphins great Dan Marino, the Bills-Dolphins rivalry has faded in relevance, but remains somewhat intense to this day. Some former Dolphins have gone to play for the Bills as well, most notably Dan Carpenter, Chris Hogan, and Charles Clay.

In the 104 regular season games between the teams in the series, the Dolphins lead 59–44–1 as of 2017. The teams have also met four times in the NFL playoffs. The Bills are 3–1 in the postseason, including a victory in the 1992 AFC Championship Game.

Noteable Facts Of Dolphins-Bills Rivalry In Last 5 Years

In 2013, quarterback Thad Lewis started in place of injured Bills starter EJ Manuel for both of their games against the Dolphins. This was notable as Lewis had grown up in Miami. Coincidentally, the Bills won both games. The first game was marked by a late-game strip-sack of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill by Bills defender Mario Williams to set up the Bills’ game-winning field goal, and the second was a 19–0 shutout by Buffalo.

During an October 23, 2016 match-up between the two teams, the Bills had a 17–6 lead at one point in the third quarter, but a career game from Miami running back Jay Ajayi helped the Dolphins to come back in the fourth quarter, winning 28–25. Ajayi became just the fourth running back in NFL history to rush for 200 yards in back-to-back games, as he had rushed for over 200 in the prior game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game also featured a hit on Bills safety Aaron Williams from Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry that prematurely ended Williams’ season. On December 24, 2016, the Dolphins won their first game in Buffalo since 2011. The Dolphins won a close game 34–31 in overtime to move to 10–5 on the year and clinched a playoff berth for the first time since 2008 with a Denver Broncos loss the next day. Buffalo, on the other hand, was eliminated from the postseason with the loss despite posting a franchise record 589 yards of offense in a single game. Its defense allowed a 57-yard run from Ajayi in overtime with only 10 defenders on the field, which set up Miami’s game-winning field goal. Shortly after the game, the Bills fired head coach Rex Ryan.

The Bills and Dolphins did not meet again until Week 15 in the 2017 season. During the game, which also carried playoff implications, Bills running back LeSean McCoy topped 10,000 career rushing yards, becoming just the 30th NFL running back to do so. Buffalo won 24–16 as Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler threw three interceptions. Two weeks later, a fight ensued after a Dolphins touchdown in the fourth quarter that led to multiple ejections. After staving off a Dolphins comeback, the Bills clinched their first playoff berth in 18 years with a win in Miami, along with a Cincinnati Bengals victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
