DAVIE, Fla. – Adam Gase said winning the turnover battle has been the key for the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins (6-6) beat the Buffalo Bills 21-17 on Sunday, despite being outgained by 240 yards.
"Turnover margin," Miami's head coach said. "The amount of turnovers that our defense is getting is what we need, and then we don't turn it over a whole bunch. I think the guys have done a good job ball security-wise of making sure we don't have fumbles."
The Dolphins host the New England Patriots (9-3) this weekend and remain on the fringe of the playoff race.
Gase talked about how New England forces turnovers.
"It's just one of those those things that you just look at records off of that," Gase said. "It's insane, probably, with us. I think New England is probably -- that's crazy, their plus-minus. Just the wins that they get. When they end up winning the turnover margin, they're not going to lose a whole bunch."
