Tannehill says Dolphins 'didn't do anything well'


The Miami Dolphins got whipped around Sunday in a 29-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw an interception and a touchdown, which was almost too late to matter, and led Miami to a 5-for-16 tally on third down and a 1-for-4 conversion rate on fourth down.

Miami amassed just 62 total yards in the first half.

"We just didn't play well. We didn't get first downs," Tannehill said, via the AP. "We didn't rush the ball. We didn't throw the ball. We didn't catch the ball. We didn't do anything well."

The Dolphins' defense gave up a couple back-breaking big plays itself, though the special teams unit was even worse.

Miami surrendered a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to Bills running back C.J. Spiller, punter Brandon Fields had a boot blocked in the first quarter, and Jarvis Landry muffed a late punt return.

Offensively, it didn't help that Knowshon Moreno, who was emerging as the go-to running back, was injured on his first carry and didn't return.

Either way, coming off a big-time season-opening victory over the New England Patriots, the Dolphins were brought down to earth in Western New York.
