Josh Allen ran through the Dolphins' defense for a 44-yard touchdown. There is a time and a place for this.

3:14 AM ET

Josh Allen was sacked on the second play of the Buffalo Bills' game-winning drive against the Miami Dolphins.

Facing second-and-18 at their own 13-yard line, the Bills needed to make some big plays or be forced to give the ball back to the Dolphins with a chance to tie the game. The Bills took all of the remaining 5 minutes, 56 seconds off the clock on a 15-play, 65-yard drive.

The game came down to a 25-yard field goal attempt, which Tyler Bass kicked through the uprights after Bills players helped Dust off a spot in the snow for him.

The kick gave the Bills a win over the Dolphins and a chance to make the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. It gave Buffalo its third straight season with at least 11 victories, the second-longest streak in franchise history. Bass and his teammates slid in the snow to celebrate.

Sean McDermott said it took everything they had to pull it out. It makes it really special. You know, it's not easy. That is how I feel about it. I'm happy to be a part of it in a town that doesn't get a lot of attention. This place is unique. It's just amazing. It's awesome.

Trailing by eight points early in the fourth quarter, the Bills tied the score on their second-to-last drive, thanks in large part to a 44-yard run by Allen. Allen compared the way he ran to Forrest Gump, the way he picked up his knees and kept going.

Allen ran a long run in the fourth quarter. After rushing for 51 yards in the first three quarters, they ran for 99 yards in the last 15 minutes. Allen finished with a team-best 77 yards on 10 carries and threw four touchdown passes, all of which went to running backs and tight ends. Allen went for the 2-point conversion.

I've never seen him make plays like that before. Sometimes you turn into a fan while you watch him. I didn't see it until we saw the JumboTron because I was under a 300-pound 3-technique on that play. I've spoken about it before. At this point, it's no surprise. It's like there's Josh being Josh again. He is the best football player in the league. You have a chance to win whenever he's on your team.

In the first half, the Bills took a 21-13 lead, but in the third quarter they lost all three phases. The offense punted on four straight possessions, the defense gave up two quick touchdown drives, and the special teams extended a Dolphins drive due to a roughing the kicker penalty.

Things came together for the Bills as the snow fell. The defense held the Dolphins to a field goal after an Allen turnover, and the offense put together two scoring drives to end the game.

It was all supposed to happen. The timing of the snow was mentioned by Poyer. We didn't get a lot of snow. We thought we would see more snow than we did. Josh goes down and takes the offense down and the snow comes down. It was quite strange. The atmosphere was enjoyable.

The Buffalo Bills have an 11-3 record with games against the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Pats remaining. Many more games will be hosted in the park.

If you don't make the playoffs, you can't win the Super Bowl. That's goal number one down." The second goal is to win the division. We will take it that way. We will take it game by game. Next week, be ready.
