Orchard Park, NY (.com) - The Dolphins controlled their postseason destiny entering Sunday's action, but a second loss to the Buffalo Bills and backup quarterback Thad Lewis has put Miami's playoff hopes in serious jeopardy.

Fred Jackson ran for 111 yards with a touchdown, Dan Carpenter kicked four field goals and the Buffalo defense came up with a season-high seven sacks in the Bills' 19-0 triumph over the Dolphins on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Lewis, whose lone career win came in a 23-21 victory at Miami in Week 7, was back under center with rookie EJ Manuel sidelined by a knee injury. The Duke product threw for 193 yards with an interception for the Bills (6-9), who were coming off a win at Jacksonville last week and have captured two in a row for the first time this season.

Miami (8-7) had won three straight entering the contest, including a 24-20 victory over New England last Sunday. The Dolphins could have reached the playoffs for the first time since 2008 by simply beating the Bills and Jets in their final two games, but instead could be eliminated from postseason contention by the end of the day.

The Dolphins' loss also gave the Patriots the AFC East crown.
