The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills have reached intermission in their Week 9 contest, with the Bills leading 19-7. The Dolphins have struggled early, but are staying in the game. They have to make adjustments at the half and come out ready to punch the Bills in the mouth with the first possession of the second half, if they want to turn around the game.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is 16-for-20 for 191 yards in the first half, while Buffalo's Tryod Taylor is 6-for-7 for 110 yards. The Bills are taking it to the Miami defense on the ground, however, as they have 20 carries for 145 yards, led by the 12 carries for 90 yards and a touchdown from LeSean McCoy. Karlos Williams added another score from the Bills' rushing game.

The Dolphins have 12 carries for 33 yards, with Lamar Miller accounting for seven carries, 17 yards, and a touchdown.

Buffalo's Samm Watkins has five receptions for 104 yards. Miller and Jarvis Landry each have five receptions for the Dolphins, with Kenny Stills leading the team with 67 receiving yards.

Miami had a shot from the Buffalo one-yard line with two seconds remaining in the half, deciding to go for the touchdown rather than kick a field goal. The pass from Tannehill to tight end Dion Sims was incomplete.

The Dolphins get the ball first to start the second half, trailing 19-7.
