Cameron Wake sacked Andy Dalton in the end zone, and the Dolphins beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 22-20, in overtime in Miami on Thursday night. Miami (4-4) let a 14-point second half lead evaporate, but they rallied to beat Cincinnati (6-3) in the extra session thanks to Wake’s sack.

When Miami’s Brent Grimes returned an Andy Dalton interception 94 yards for a touchdown midway through the third quarter, the Dolphins were in command 17-3. The Bengals rallied behind two rushing touchdowns from rookie running back Giovani Bernard, the last of which knotted the score at 17 early in the fourth quarter.

After a Mike Nugent field goal pushed the Bengals into the lead, Miami’s Caleb Sturgis kicked a 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds to play to help send the game to overtime tied at 20.

On a third down and 10 with under seven minutes to play in overtime, Wake pushed through the middle of the Cincinnati line to record his third sack of the night on Dalton.

Dalton completed 32 of 53 passes for 338 yards, three interceptions and a fumble. Bengals receiver A.J. Green caught 11 passes for 128 yards.

Running back Lamar Miller carried 16 times for 105 yards for Miami.
