The Buffalo Bills clinched a postseason berth on Saturday night, knocking off the Miami Dolphins in an epic snow-filled game, 32-29.
Kicker Tyler Bass hit the game-winning 25-yard field goal as time expired and celebrated with an epic chest first slide into the snow before his teammates joined in on the fun.
Ahead of Bass’ kick, Buffalo’s linemen did a little housekeeping on the field, clearing snow away with their hands and arms.
The Bills gained an early advantage over the Dolphins on Saturday night, going into the halftime break with a 21-13 lead.
However, after being shutout in the third quarter, the Bills found themselves trailing Miami, 29-21, early in the fourth quarter after Jason Sanders’ 47-yard field goal seconds into the fourth quarter.
With 9:02 left in the game, quarterback Josh Allen led a 75-yard scoring drive, capped off by a five-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dawson Knox, followed by a quarterback keeper for the two-point conversion to tie the game at 29-29.
Still tied with 5:56 remaining, Allen orchestrated a 15-play, 86-yard drive, culminating with Bass’ game-winner as the final second ticked off the clock.
The Bills improve to AFC-best 11-3 on the season, clinching a spot in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
