The Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins have the same record, but Josh Allen is doing things Jim Kelly never did. What’s going on?
The facts about dolphins is a sports article that tells the story of Josh Allen’s sadistically torturing of the Miami Dolphins in a way that Jim Kelly never did.
Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills has turned the Miami Dolphins into a punching bag, and his knuckles are getting a little bloodied.
Allen hasn’t had any major issues with his AFC East division opponents since joining the league in 2018. In fact, things have progressed to the point where the Bills are doing accomplishments even great quarterback Jim Kelly could never duplicate.
The Miami Dolphins are having a tough time with Josh Allen.
Even if Allen had just done the bare minimum in Week 2, the Bills would have won at Hard Rock Stadium. His two touchdown throws merely added to the 35-0 score.
Unfortunately for Dolphins fans hoping to move on from last season, it’s time to unearth the 2020 season finale from the depths of their minds. Buffalo thrashed their division opponents 56-26, thus ending Miami’s chances of making the playoffs.
The Bills have outscored the Dolphins 91-26 in the past eight quarters, according to NBC Sports’ Peter King. To give you a sense of how severely Buffalo is beating up on Miami, during the Jim Kelly era (1986-96), the Bills never scored 80 points in a two-game span against their rivals.
Kelly threw three touchdown passes in a 44-34 win against the Dolphins in the AFC Divisional Round in 1991. When the sides met again a few months later to start the 1991 regular season, the Bills’ star quarterback threw for 381 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-31 win, giving the Bills 79 points in two games.
If you exclude the playoffs, Buffalo’s best two-game output versus the Dolphins during Kelly’s tenure was 76 points in 1991. For the record, Allen wasn’t born until 1996.
The Buffalo Bills have taken another step toward becoming the next New England Patriots.
Every division needs a punching bag for its perennial powerhouse. Just ask Tom Brady, who led the New England Patriots to a 32-3 record against the Buffalo Bills from 2001 through 2009.
Allen was selected seventh overall by the Bills in the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s won his past six starts, nearly all of them convincingly, since losing his first against the Dolphins in October 2018. In those games, Buffalo has outscored Miami 232-112 and has won every meeting at Hard Rock Stadium.
In that time, Allen has thrown 17 touchdowns and just three interceptions. The 6-foot-5 muscular force has also scored three touchdowns on the ground, though none since November of this year.
Part of Allen’s success may be attributed to his joining the Dolphins in the last year of Adam Gase’s tenure and then starting twice against a rebuilding team in 2019. Even with that caveat, we can all agree that giving up 91 points in two games to a division opponent is unforgivable.
The rematch in October may showcase two clubs on very different trajectories.

The Bills and Dolphins both finished Week 2 with a 1-1 record, giving them a three-way tie for first place in the AFC East. You should know that Mac Jones and the Patriots are still alive and well.
When these two teams meet again in Week 8, they may be on opposite ends of the spectrum. Buffalo remains the AFC East favorite, with winnable games against Houston and Washington on the horizon. Over the next three weeks, the Dolphins will play the unbeaten Las Vegas Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are already battling to protect quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Within six weeks, anything may happen. For all we know, the Week 8 game might turn into a nationally broadcast Sunday Night Football battle. Perhaps these will be the AFC East’s first and second-place teams.
Fans of the Miami Dolphins may not want to get their hopes up for a division championship this season. Allen and the Bills are still in the way of the Dolphins, and they’re already wrapping up their first-round picks in preparation.
