Dolphins hammer Bills on ground to tune of 250 yards, 3 TDs to pick up first win
MIAMI -- Terrell Owens made three catches Sunday -- not great, but not bad considering his team seldom had the ball.
Terrell Owens averaged 8.2 passes targeted at him last season with the Cowboys. So far in 2009 with the Bills, he hasn't been targeted eight times yet in any of Buffalo's four games.
