Yes, this is the '73 Dolphins we're discussing, but still.


Well, the Bills completed only 6 passes for less than 100 yards and had two turnovers (MIami had 0 turnovers). OJ and Braxton caught 1 pass each, J.D. Hill caught 3 and Paul Seymour the last one. Interestingly, in this game OJ threw an incomplete pass.

Buffalo having under 100 passing yards in 1973 was not that unusual. IIRC, they completed a long pass to Hill in the first quarter, but ended up missing a FG. Another drive ended with a Miami goalline stand at the one. A 4th quarter drive inside the red zone ended with a turnover on downs.

Agreed. Only twice in 14 games did the Bills get over 100 yards passing. One game vs Miami they had 1 yard.

Neither. Rizzo failed his physical in May.
