Ty Johnson stopped short of goal line at end of first half

While James Cook dropped the touchdown, the Buffalo Bills were still trying to score a touchdown. On 3rd and 10, the Dolphins interestingly called a prevent defense with almost the entire defense lined up along the goal line.

Josh Allen would take what the defense was giving him and hit Deonte Harty on a quick 12-yard reception that gave them a fresh set of downs and only took four seconds off the clock. The Bills would have probably one more chance at the end zone from the 11 yard line with 11 seconds left.

Allen would make the questionable decision to throw it in the middle of the field where Ty Johnson had ran free and caught the ball only about three yards from the end zone. Unfortunately, Jerome Baker made an incredible stop that kept Johnson out of the end zone.

The play was certainly questionable as Baker should have been called for a helmet-to-helmet hit that would have given the Bills one more untimed play. However, that didn't happen and with no timeouts left the clock would run out.
