Fourth-quarter analysis: Karlos Williams nails the door shut

Even the most passionate of Fred Jackson fans has to admit that Karlos Williams looks legit.

The Buffalo Bills' rookie running back capped a huge day for the offense with a 41-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of a 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium.

Williams finished with 12 carries for 110 yards and that touchdown, a robust 9.2 yards per carry. He provided the only running game to speak of for the Bills. The rest of the team, including starter LeSean McCoy, had 22 carries for 41 yards.

Williams has touchdowns in his first three games, becoming the first rookie running back in the NFL to do that since New England's Robert Edwards in 1998.

With a bang: The first play of the fourth quarter was a good one for the Bills, as quarterback Tyrod Taylor found wide receiver Chris Hogan wide open down the left sideline for a 38-yard touchdown. Hogan replaced Sammy Watkins, who left with a calf injury.

Goal-line stands: The outcome was never really in doubt, but the Bills' defense made it clear they didn't want to give up anything easy to the Dolphins. Buffalo stopped Miami on first-and-goal from the 2-yard line and first-and-goal from the 6-yard line.
