The Miami Dolphins led most of the game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16, only to somehow need a last minute 55-yard field goal from Andrew Franks to send the game into overtime. Then, a missed field goal from Dan Carpenter kept the game tied as Miami got the ball back.
Traded punts eventually led to Miami getting the ball - and Jay Ajayi doing his thing. By the time Franks kicked the game winning field goal with less than a minute remaining in the extra period, Ajayi had 206 rushing yards on 32 carries and a touchdown. It was his third 200-yard performance of the season.
This win pushes Miami to 10 wins on the season and to the brink of a postseason berth. Miami has not made the playoffs since 2008, so this is a huge win for the team and one the fans and players are celebrating. After the game, many players took to Twitter with their reactions:
