Dolphins Vs. Bills Score Update: C.J. Spiller Gives Buffalo An Early 7-0 Lead

Playing without Tony Sparano and before a sparse crowd at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Buffalo Bills took a seven point lead in the first quarter of Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins. C.J. Spiller took it in for the Bills, bouncing outside on a 24 yard run that Bills fans would love to see more of around Orchard Park. It was the first time in nine games that Miami gave up a first quarter touchdown.

The touchdown run capped a quick three play, 42 yard drive that was set up by a Miami turnover. Reggie Bush fumbled for the fourth time this season, and the Bills pounced on it at the Miami 42 yard line. Spiller has five carries for 57 yards with five minutes still to play in the first quarter. The Spiller run was one of the few big plays in a relatively uneventful first quarter.
