S---, we're going to go out and beat that ass. Point blank. Period," - Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin on what would happen when the Bills played the Dolphins.
Final score at Sun Life last night: Dolphins 22, Bills 9. More like LOLdis McKelvin, right? RIGHT?!
McKelvin made the prediction, oddly enough, in the locker room last week directly after a Buffalo loss to the Chiefs. The Bills cornerback was super excited to come down to Miami and whoop the Dolphins, letting all the reporters in the locker room know exactly what he thought his team would be doing around 8:25 p.m. on November 13th 2014.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. That didn't happen! Instead the Dolphins came out and played just less crappy enough to beat the Bills. Miami trailed 9-3, before running off 19 straight points that sealed the deal.
The win moves the Dolphins to 6-4, their best record after ten games since 2008, which says more about 2009-2013 than it does about this season, really.
But enough about the Dolphins, back to Nostradumbass.
To literally add injury to insult, McKelvin didn't even see the second half of the game. Lamar Miller hit the juke button on his ass on the way to a long run in the first half, zig-zagging around McKelvin like he was a little orange parking cone. The move folded McKelvin over on top of himself like a pretzel, and sent him to the locker room for the rest of the game.

The win was huge for the Dolphins, and equally crushing for the Bills. Miami stays in the playoff hunt, improving to 6-4, while Buffalo drops to 5-5 and is mostly likely out of playoff consideration.
Before you get super excited, though, a glance at the schedule shows that the Dolphins next travel to Denver to face Peyton Manning. If the Dolphins can somehow pull out a victory over the Broncos, then you might be looking at purchasing playoff tickets in the near future.
The Dolphins play the Broncos in Denver on November 23 at 4:25 p.m.
