Philbin said it was his decision to start Michael Thomas over Louis Delmas. Performance based? "Everything."

Bills average 5.3 yards per play, compared with 3.9 for Dolphins. And Miami awful on special teams.
From Dolphins' 29-10 loss:Tannehill: 31-49-241-1-1,73.6 rating. Miller: 11 carries, 46 yds. Wallace: 5 catches,56; 4 Bills sack;0 for Miami.
We're .500 again. Hello darkness my old friend.
Nowhere to go for Tannehill. Just about everything had to go the Dolphins way in the second half to get back in the game. It hasn't.
Bills notch another field goal. Game slipping away for Dolphins, but their first quarter performance set that in motion.
That's a tough call. Probably not enough evidence to overturn that but it doesn't look like Spiller had possession. Regardless, it's 23-10
Dolphins get a touchdown and it comes via a spectacular catch from Wallace. Solid drive this time around, offensive line much improved.
Bad day for Dolphins offense, defense and now special teams. Let's not forget that blocked punt in the first half.
Love that C.J. Spiller still returns kicks. Missed the days of every down players on special teams.
Unbelievable, Dolphins just gave away any sort of momentum they built on that initial drive. Spectacular run by Spiller to make it 16-3.
Panther nation stand up.
