NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

What an embarrassing way to end the season. The Dolphins got demolished in Buffalo and proceeded to become the worst Dolphins defense in the history of the organization. Again, the defense made Josh Allen look like a star as they had no answer for his scrambling ability. Ryan Tannehill started the game off with two interceptions and just didn’t look good all day. This may have been his final game as a Dolphin as that decision will come during the offseason. Still not sure on Adam Gase’s status but today’s showing did not help his cause. Going to be an interesting offseason either way.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
