First-quarter analysis: Greg Roman's script is on point again

Greg Roman has shown he can draw up opening drives with the best of 'em the past two weeks.

The Buffalo Bills' offensive coordinator scripted a perfect opening drive for the second straight game as the Bills took a 7-0 lead over the Miami Dolphins on their first possession Sunday inside Sun Life Stadium.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was flawless on the drive, going 5 of 5 for 77 yards and a touchdown on the drive. Taylor used his mobility perfectly, rolling to his right or left to find throwing lanes. Perhaps the sweetet play call by Roman was a misdirection in which receiver Robert Woods went in motion right while Taylor and the offensive line went left. Taylor threw back to Woods, who picked up 16 yards.

Sweet revenge: That went to tight end Charles Clay, the former Dolphin, who won't soon forget the first drive against his former team. Clay caught three passes for 58 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to cap the drive. On the play, he made three separate Miami tacklers miss.

New position: Defensive tackle Kyle Williams checked into the game at tight end on the Bills' second drive, serving as a blocker. The run by Boobie Dixon went for no gain.
