    Dolphins 32 Bills 21

    The Bills dropped their home opener against the division rival Miami Dolphins, keeping the game close throughout but ultimately not having enough weapons on offense to close the deal in the end.

    Brandon Marshall quickly scored his first TD as a Dolphin on his first catch of the season, 6-0 Miami after the first of 3 missed PAT's for the day. Rookie CJ Spiller, who got the start for Buffalo, gave the Bills their only lead of the game shortly after, scoring on a toss from 2 yards out. Miami would answer immediately, Ronnie Brown breaking away for the 68 yard score, another missed kick giving the Dolphins a 12-7 lead at halftime.

    Miami would score the only TD of the third quarter, Anthony Fasano hauling it in from 6 yards to put his team up 19-7. The Bills refused to go away however, with prized free agent Robert You throwing the first TD of his career to make the score 19-14 with 5 minutes to play.

    It was as close as the Bills would get, as TD's to Marshall and CB Vontae Davis on his second interception of the day sealed the win, Roscoe Parrish taking the ensuing kickoff back 104 yards to the house to finish the scoring.

    Ronnie Brown was the game's MVP, rushing for 128 yards and 1 TD on 15 carries. For the Bills, CJ Spiller didn't put up huge numbers (18 carries for 48 and 4 catches for 38 with 1 rushing TD) but he allowed the Bills to control the clock and keep themselves in the game all day with his tireless effort, the Buffalo coaching staff praising him more than any other player after the game.

    GG Mustang, looking forward to our rematch.
