Quick highlights from the Buffalo Bills' victory over the Miami Dolphins in Ralph Wilson Stadium ...

What it means: The Bills are 6-9. They have matched last season's win total, swept the Dolphins for the first time since 2007 and posted their first shutout in Ralph Wilson Stadium since 2006 (also against the Dolphins).

Offensive player of the game: Playing with sore ribs that limited him in practice throughout the week, Fred Jackson posted his first 100-yard game of the year. He ran 19 times for 111 yards and the only touchdown.

Defensive player of the game: Undersized and undrafted cornerback Nickell Robey was a big hitter. The rookie notched a pair of third-down sacks. With the Dolphins driving for points at the end of the first half, Robey tackled Daniel Thomas for a 1-yard loss and, on the next play, sacked Ryan Tannehill for a 7-yard loss that took the Dolphins out of field-goal range.

Drive of the game: The Bills kept the ball for 11:07 in the third quarter and took it into the fourth quarter with a 19-play, 92-yard drive that lasted 9:16 and ended with a Dan Carpenter field goal for a 13-0 lead.

Thad Lewis wins again: The Hialeah Miami Lakes grad beat his hometown team for the second time with EJ Manuel sidelined by a knee injury. Lewis did so this time without Stevie Johnson (mother's death), Marquise Goodwin (injured in the first quarter) and Robert Woods (ejected in the third quarter). Lewis was 15 of 25 for 193 yards and no touchdowns with one interception.

Defensive milestones: The Bills have three players (Mario Williams, Jerry Hughes, Kyle Williams) with double-digit sacks for the first time since 1995 and four players (Jairus Byrd, Aaron Williams, Kiko Alonso, Jim Leonhard) with at least four interceptions for the first time since 1965.

Preliminary injury report: Goodwin was injured on the Dolphins' sideline when he got tackled on an end-around run with 2:59 left in the first quarter. ...

Coming up: The Bills will conclude their season at a place they've never won. They'll play the New England Patriots next Sunday in Gillette Stadium.
