Mark Gaughan's Big Play: O'Leary TD put Bills in control

The Bills started fast and the Miami Dolphins started sloppy.

Bills tight end Nick O'Leary took advantage of a coverage bust to catch a 26-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and the Bills rolled most of the way to a 22-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

The Bills never trailed and never seriously were threatened after the first score, although Miami made it a one-score game inside the final two minutes.

Miami free safety Reshad Jones was exploited on O'Leary's TD. Miami bit on a first-down play-action fake to LeSean McCoy off right tackle. Zay Jones ran a crossing route to the left side of the field, and O'Leary cut up the field to the right side of the end zone. He was wide open because the Dolphins' safety got caught watching Zay Jones go in the other direction.

The Dolphins made six penalties in the first quarter alone and finished with 14 penalties for 145 yards.
