Dolphins commit safety to start against Bills; Second week with early safety

The Miami Dolphins once again had a problem with a shotgun snap early in a game. Last week, Mike Pouncey snapped the ball before Ryan Tannehill was ready for it and it flew past the quarterback and out the back of the endzone. This week, on the first play on offense for the Dolphins, Pouncey snapped the ball high and through Tannehill's hands, again having the ball go out the back of the endzone and giving up the two free points.

The Bills were then able to move the ball down the field against the Dolphins after the free kick. LeSean McCoy racked up 48 yards on the touchdown run. The Dolphins moved the ball to midfield late in the first quarter, trailing Buffalo 9-0, but failed to convert on third down and will punt.
