Bills' offensive woes continue vs. Dolphins

The Buffalo Bills' offense had five more total yards than the Miami Dolphins. That's about all it can say.

Buffalo (5-5) went 0-for-12 on third down and 0-for-2 on fourth down in the Bills' 35-8 loss to the Dolphins (3-7).

Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two interceptions and was credited with three fumbles, though he recovered each one of them. Guard Andy Levitre, who was filling in at center, struggled snapping to Fitzpatrick.

Running back Fred Jackson, who is above and beyond Buffalo's best and most productive offensive player, picked up 17 yards on seven carries. Jackson did, however, have five receptions for 50 yards.

The most alarming statistic, aside from the third-down efficiency, was probably Buffalo's work in the red zone. The Bills didn't convert on any of their three trips inside the 20-yard line.

Buffalo failed to score a touchdown in the game.
