    Imagine saying at the start of the season that the only teams still undefeated at the end of the 2nd window of week 3 would be the Dolphins, Eagles and Giants. You'd have been sectioned.

    According to Florio on NBC, the investigation could take 2 weeks and has no bearing on whether Tua plays. That's all in the medical exams.

    Decades ago, I had a Buffalo fan who worked for me. He used to complain that back then, we played in Buffalo in September when the elements were favorable. The last couple of years, we've played them up there late in the season. Wonder if he's happy to play in South Florida after a third of their squad is probably getting IVs after the game? Those guys were gassed and cramping like crazy at the end of the game.

    In Tua's post-game interview he said his wobbly legs were not due to hitting his head on the turf. He said that on a previous play he hyper-extended his back and it was tender, when he was pushed back and landed on his butt he compressed his spine and caused spasms in his back that affected his walking. That's why he cleared the concussion protocol with no issues.

    It's amazing to even be able to consider such things as a legitimate possibility.

    Bridgewater looked like he was being inconvenienced by having to go out there.

    Exactly and just last week half of this board was BEGGING for Bridgewater to replace Tua at halftime. (I know you weren’t one of them Dupree).

    But makes you wonder about a lot of people…

    Tua whispers into his ear "I own you now. Do you understand, be-yatch?"

    Allen at the end "Yes, boss."

    Watched the game at a bar here in Western NY, deep in Bills country. It was a great win and there were a few of us die hard Dolphin fans cheering them on!

    I'll be surprised if we win this week especially after the emotions of the last 2 weeks. Just feel that we are due to come back down to earth at some point.

    Definitely, looked like he didn't want to be there.

    On Twitter, Bills fans are complaining about having to play in the heat. :pointlol:

    They made a point, on the broadcast, that for the 1pm games the Home sidelines are in complete shade.

    It's a road game, man up! But but but Heat Stroke. They guys are slowly giving eachother CTE but we're worried about the Heat?

    The Ken Dorsey meltdown really put the Bills frustration on display.Put an exclamation point on their loss.

    Between him and Allen, it really makes them look like petulant children who don't know how to behave in a tough loss.

    Great Win. Allen was impressive. I kept thinking we got them now and the would make some crazy throw for a completion. Thankfully they wore down at the end, great all around game. Loved the way the defense kept attacking.

    Their inability to get chunk plays was their downfall. Josh Allen is mobile and difficult to tackle so he kept them alive, but ultimately in the Red Zone he couldn't finish.

    I'm looking forward to see this defence eat the Bengals **** O-Line alive.

    They're calling that punt that resulted in a safety the "butt punt" lol. Seriously though, it's not just offense and defense that played well, we should give a shoutout to ST. Thomas Moorestead had a fantastic free kick right after the butt punt.

    True, that free kick was a bomb it seemed like. Anyone catch how far he actually booted that one?

    Could you imagine how wild the butt punt stuff would've gotten if the Bills hadn't messed up their time management at the end? Like in a weeks time, barely anybody will remember that the butt punt happened outside of it being a weird moment and yet if we had lost it would've been a massive point. Instead all I'm seeing today are jokes about the sun and constant clips of a coaching meltdown.

    I wonder what bizarre things happened in games that nobody remembers because of the end result of the game.

    The arm side reversal videos are masterpieces. Whoever first started that the other week is a mad genius.

    I really hope that was the case, but man that looked concussion related and not a back spasm. Any time I have a back issue, it's just freeze in place waiting for the worst to pass and then slowly try and restore mobility. I've never had it affect legs or just collapse - that really seemed like a motor control issue.

    I know the game would have played out differently, but could you imagine it if the Bills didn't miss the field goal and the butt punt tied the game?

    Traveled 74 yards in the air (from Miami 20 to Buffalo 6) with a 17 yard return. Clutch.

    I've had Sciatica since I was about 19, which affects the sciatic nerve at the base of the spine and follows it all the way down into the lower legs. Thankfully, I haven't had a bad attack in 30 years but I can tell you that when it does happen, that's exactly what you look like. One minute you're walking along normally, next minute there's pain shooting down your legs from the bottom of your back and you start doing the crazy wobble dance.

    Yikes, that's pretty bad. I think it's fair to investigate the Tua thing, and I really hope it's not a concussion and that things weren't improperly handled, but yeah this Higgins incident should definitely be evaluated. He's clearly having a problem after.

    Regardless, I don't think either we or the Bengals would be at fault or penalized - there are supposed to be NFL affiliated extra doctors to do the eval completely outside the purview of coaches. But you can be sure the NFL will be monitoring Tua's situation this week and requiring all the tests be done to full satisfaction before he's allowed to play.

    Honestly though, it could have gone really bad because we did set them up for a field goal to win the game.. but usually when you punt from your end zone, they always get a good return that ends up inside the 40 or inside the 30.. which wouldve been a huge momentum change and the bills offense wouldve been fired up.

    Whereas taking the safety allowed us to kick it deep and slow them down as we have all game..

    i mean we got lucky it worked out well but that butt punt may have saved us lol

    I think the result would have been the same. That was clutch defense we were playing at the end. I mean, just getting the ball back was a momentum shift for the Bills. They couldn't even get a FG out of it. The way we were playing I bet we stop them from the go-ahead TD.

    Defense should also get most of the credit for that first Dolphins TD. Holland stripping the ball from Allen and Ingram recovering at the Bills 6 yard line. Our offense beat the Ravens and our defense beat the Bills. Sounds weird to say when we gave up 400 yards passing and 115 yards rushing, but it's points that count, and 17 points allowed to one of the best offenses while essentially being responsible for 7 offensive points. Fantastic game. Still can't get over it.

    What’s funny about people saying unfair advantage with the heat is you never hear that when it’s 10 below and freezing. Homefield advantage is noise or conditions.

    The ONLY stat that matters Ryan is the scoreboard you fat looking Jabba the Hut reject!

    You wanna talk about stats? Ok, let's talk about stats. Allen threw for 400 yards. yay....awesome....but it took him 63 pass attempts to get that many yards as compared to the 38 pass attempts to get what, 386 yards against the Titans? So what does that say? The Dolphins defense shut down their high flying big scoring offense.

    The Bills are like what, 0-7 in recent history in one score games. That tells me they can't win when they NEED to
