Dolphins edge Bengals in OT

By Dedrick D. Henry, Sr.

     MIAMI GARDENS, FL – When the Bengals started from their own 15 with no timeouts and 45 seconds left, they decided against running out the clock. This aggressive approach back-fired when Dalton’s pass was intercepted by CB#24 Dimitri Patterson, setting up a 36-yard field goal by K#9 Caleb Sturgis to put Miami up 10-3 at halftime.CB#21 Brent Grimes returned an interception 94 yards for a touch-down to put the Dolphins up 17-3 midway through the third quarter, but they squandered a two-touchdown second-half lead. Cincinnati’s Giovani Bernard scored on a 35-yard touch-down run in the third quarter.

The Bengals drove 64 yards for a field goal in the second quarter to take a 3-0 lead, and mounted an 80-yard drive for a touchdown in the third quarter. But CB#21 Grimes’ interception represented a potential 14-point swing, because the Bengals were at the Miami 10 yard line. Mike Nugent kicked a 54-yard field goal with 1:24 remaining in regulation to put the Bengals ahead, but Miami answered with a 50-yard drive, and Sturgis made a 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds left to force overtime.

The teams traded punts to start overtime. After Cincinnati’s Terence Newman was called for a 38-yard pass interference penalty forcing another punt that pinned them deep, setting up the safety byDE#91 Wake.

DE#91 Cameron Wake sacked Bengals QB Andy Dalton for a safety with 6:38 left in over-time, and the Dolphins beat the Cincinnati Bengals 22-20 on Thursday night.
