Following the Gesicki TD, a successful 2-point conversion tied the game at 17-17.

Miami had cut the score to 17-9 with just over one minute remaining in the half, after a 50-yard punt return by Cedrick Wilson was followed by Jason Sanders ' third field goal of the game. Holland then intercepted Josh Allen on the Bills' third play of the following drive to set up Gesicki's touchdown. Thompson found wide receiver Tyreek Hill on the two-point conversion attempt to tie the game at 17. Buffalo answered right back with a 39-yard field goal to take a 20-17 lead into halftime.
