Leave it to Josh Allen to have one of his best halves of the season in the frigid temperatures at Orchard Park. Allen threw three touchdowns in the first half as the Bills outscored the Miami Dolphins 21-13 in this snowy affair due to the effects of a lake storm earlier in the day.

Allen threw to James Cook to end the first half with a 4-yard touchdown run with no time left to give Buffalo an eight-point lead at halftime. He finished the first half 16 of 213 for 217 yards and three touchdowns with a 136.9 rating.

The game was even briefly delayed as Bills fans threw snowballs onto the field, the only thing that stopped Allen. The Bills quarterback also sent hits to Quintin Morris and Nyheim Hines. Dawson Knox also has three catches for 65 yards.
