>Grading the Bills
Running game: B
Lynch and Jackson combined for 102 yards and 4.4 per carry. But team couldn't play ball control when game got out of hand late.
Passing game: D
Edwards had worst game of season. Made some poor decisions and bounced some throws. Good coverage by Dolphins. Drops didn't help matters.
Run defense: B
Held the Fish to 1.9 yards a carry and long run of 12 yards. Wildcat attack didn't hurt them much. It seemed worse, somehow.
Pass defense: F
Ginn's career-best performance brought back grim memories of Chambers in 2005. McGee roasted to a crisp on his bad knee. Pass rush was weak.
Special teams: C-
No big plays, aside from Walker's blocked field goal. Just when you think it's safe, Neill snaps the ball over the punter's head.
A lot of talk from players about not being prepared, reminiscent of Arizona game. Why wasn't McKelvin ready to spell McGee at corner?
>Grading the Dolphins
Running game: C-
Vaunted Wildcat didn't do much damage. Did have some effective runs in opening TD drive, and Williams blew through Bills on winning TD run.
Passing game: A
What was that about Pennington not being able to throw the ball downfield? He'll move past Trent in league QB ratings.
Run defense: C
Seemed ready to fold when Bills had big drive to start second half. But got off the hook when Bills imploded in stretch.
Pass defense: A
Made Edwards look like a rookie. Tight coverage forced Trent to hold ball too long at times. Got pass rush at critical moments.
Special teams: B
Punter, Fields, had a field day. Pinned Bills deep twice. Carpenter rallied to kick three field goals after first one was blocked.
Superb job of preparation. Went after McGee with merciless intent. It's obvious that Parcells has made a difference.
