MIAMI, F.L. (WIVB) – Jay Ajayi rushed for 214 yards and a touchdown as the Dolphins ran over the Bills at Hard Rock Stadium.

It wasn’t all gloomy in South Beach as Buffalo got a rushing touchdown from quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the second quarter and led 10-6 at halftime.

The defense didn’t have an answer for the Miami offense in the second half. They scored 22 points in the final 15 minutes of the game.

The Bills did have star running back LeSean McCoy in the starting line up, but did not get much production from him as McCoy was limited to eight carries for 11 yards. McCoy exited the game in the third quarter with hamstring tightness.

He wasn’t the only player who battled injury. Aaron Williams, who suffered a neck injury last season, left the game after being his head on by Miami’s Jarvi Landry. Marquise Goodwin also left the game and was in the league’s concussion protocol. Goodwin scored on a 67-yard touchdown strike in the third quarter.

Next, the Bills will host the top team in the AFC East when the Patriots visit New Era Field. Kick-off is set for 1 p.m.
