BILLS ...31 DOLPHINS ...14

A 56-yard field goal by Rian Lindell and a 51-yard touchdown catch by Terrell Owens in the final minutes propelled Buffalo, which scored 24 points in the fourth quarter. The win was the first for interim coach Perry Fewell, who replaced the fired Dick Jauron two games ago. Lindell's career-long field goal with 3:35 left put the Bills ahead for the first time at 17-14. Just 72 seconds later, Ryan Fitzpatrick teamed up with Owens on their scoring play and Fred Jackson's second TD of the game, a 7-yard run with 1:20 left, closed out the scoring as Buffalo ended a three-game losing streak.
