The Miami Dolphins appeared poised to blow a second-straight 17-point lead, but the team was able to dig deep and find a way to pull off the overtime win against the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals late in overtime.

After the two teams were trading possessions in overtime, the Dolphins passed up on a 57-yard field goal attempt in order to play the field position game and punt.

The ball landed inside of the 10-yard line, which left the Bengals deep in their own territory as they looked for some late-game heroics.

Unfortunately for the Bengals, it was Miami who was able to find a way to win.

On third-and-eight, the Dolphins rushed Andy Dalton who was dropping back to pass, when Cameron Wake was able to come crashing through the line to sack Dalton in the endzone for the walk-off safety. It was just the third time in NFL history that a game ended on a safety in overtime.

    The ball didn’t just “land” inside the 10 yard line. Jimmy Wilson made and awesome special teams play and downed it there, avoiding a touch back and setting up the opportunity for a game winning safety.
