The Miami Dolphins experienced another disappointing loss to a winning football team on Sunday night when the Buffalo Bills crushed the Dolphins hopes of obtaining the AFC East crown. So here are some interesting numbers: 20, 17, 14, 27, 19, and 14. Those are the total points the Dolphins scored in all of their losses this season. Besides the Tennessee Titans game (27), the Dolphins offense just wasn’t putting up the points during these meetings. Against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night, the Dolphins defense did a pretty good job of keeping them in the game despite the injuries. But the Dolphins second half offense was barely on the field and were unable to get anything going in the passing game.

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