Over the last thirteen years Buffalo has had seven head coach, five general managers and two different owners. Throughout all the change and chaos one thing has remained constant.
No. 95 was the last player introduced at New Era Field on Sunday.
His 183rd and final game in a Bills uniform.
Buffalo feed off the energy and emotion early.
The Bills went 66 yards on 9 plays on their opening drive capped off by a Josh Allen 1-yard touchdown run.
Three plays later, Tremaine Edmunds picked off Ryan Tannehill and returned it to the Miami 18 yard line.
On the very next snap, Allen through a pass behind Zay Jones on a slant. Jones made a nice adjustment to make the catch, spun back toward the sideline and into the endzone.
Buffalo scored 14 points on 10 offensive plays and led 14-0 less than halfway through the first quarter.
Later in the first quarter, Williams registered his 103rd tackle for a loss. The most in team history.
The Bills rookie QB had a perfect passer rating in the first quarter for the second time this season. He also did it against Minnesota back in week 3.
Miami tied the game up before halftime when Allen threw a pick-six to Reshad Jones with 40 seconds left in the 2nd quarter.
The Bills took control in the second half sparked by a cheap shot by former Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso.
Midway through the 3rd quarter, Allen scrambled for a 9 yards before sliding feet first for a first down. Alonso dove head first, hitting Allen and a scuffle ensued.
Alonso, Robert Quinn and Jordan Mills were all ejected.
After that the Bills poured it on.
Allen threw for a pair of touchdowns and ran in another one in the second half giving him his first five touchdown game of his career.
With four minutes left the Bills season, Williams caught his first pass of his career. A 9-yard reception from Allen to send him off with New Era Field chanting his name.
After the game Williams told the CBS broadcast, “To play for these fans has been my honor. I wish I could do it all over again but life calls. But I’ll be a Buffalo Bill forever and I’m extremely proud of that.”
