MIAMI GARDENS — Jarvis Landry set a Miami Dolphins record with his 111th reception on Sunday against Buffalo.
On the play that set the record, Landry appeared to fumble, with the Bills going 99 yards for a touchdown recovery.
But the fumble was overturned, and the ball was ruled out at the half-yard line.
A few minutes later, Landry scored on the 112th catch of his career, as Miami cut its deficit to 22-9.
Then, a brawl ensued.
As a result of that melee, Landry was ejected for disrespecting an official. And Drake was ejected for throwing a Bills helmet about 20 yards.
Landry finished his season 13 yards shy of 1,000. If he had reached 1,000, he would have been the first Dolphin to reach the plateau in three straight seasons.
