ORCHARD PARK, New York. One of the NFL’s most explosive offenses remained Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills with a 67-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to Jalen Waddle on the second half of the Miami Dolphins’ first drive. .

On third-and-4 from his own 33-yard line, Tagovailoa found a wide open Waddle, who clocked 21.11 mph on his way to the end zone, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. Waddle increased his game total to 114 receiving yards with three catches.

The Dolphins’ 2-point conversion attempt failed and they fell to the Bills 21-19.

But Tagovailoa wasn’t done, as he found Tyreek Hill for a 20-yard touchdown pass made possible by a fumble against Buffalo. The Dolphins finally took their first lead of the game at 26-21.

Waddle’s touchdown marked Tagovailoa’s third TD pass of 60 or more yards in his last three games. He threw a 75-yarder to Trent Sherfield in Week 13 and a 60-yarder to Hill in Week 14.

Miami is tied for the NFL lead with six passing games of at least 50 yards this season. The Bills’ defense hadn’t allowed a pass of 50 or more yards in Week 15.

The long touchdown capped what was a strong game for Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who threw three TD passes in the first half.
