The Miami Dolphins topped the Cincinnati Bengals 22-20 at home Thursday night, getting the win on a safety in overtime. The winning two points came with 6:38 left in OT when Miami’s Cameron Wake sacked Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who’d retreated to the goal line on third-and-10 from the eight-yard-line. It was just the third overtime safety in NFL history. That winning sack came after Miami had gotten the game to overtime with a tying 44-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis with just 11 seconds left in regulation. Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill was 20 of 28 for 208 yards, while Dalton went 32 of 53 for 338 yards.
