The Dolphins called on Stills to make a game-changing play against the Bills. He delivered

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills faced double coverage — Jordan Pryor in front of him, Michah Hyde to his side — as quarterback Ryan Tannehill heaved the ball to the left corner of the end zone midway through the fourth quarter on Sunday.

It was a tough play by anybody’s standard. Coach Adam Gase was merely hoping for an incompletion.

Anything short of a perfect throw and catch could have been disastrous for a Dolphins offense that struggled for most of the game against the Buffalo Bills.

“It’s just one of those things. The ball’s in the air. [I’ve] got to go get it,” Stills said. “Just try to take advantage of all my opportunities.”

In the end, Stills did just that, hauling in the 13-yard touchdown pass to give Miami the go-ahead touchdown in its 21-17 win over the Bills at Hard Rock Stadium.

“Just all the repetition that we got and the time at practice that we’ve spent together,” Stills said of his relationship with Tannehill. “I know when in the ball’s in the air that I trust him to make a play and I know he feels the same.”

Added Tannehill: “It’s a play we’ve been working for a while. The safety played more to the left than we wanted him to. It took a while for Kenny to get around him and make the play. I just trusted him that he was going to get around that guy. He did a great job of getting around and making that play on the football.”
