Dolphins Win in Overtime on Cameron Wake Walk-Off-Sack (GIF)

Heading into last night, only two NFL games had ever ended in overtime on a walk-off safety.  The first took place in 1989, when the Vikings defeated the Rams, 19-17.  The second occurred in 2004, during a 23-21 victory for the Bears over the Titans.

And now you can add a third to that list.

With 6:38 left in overtime during last night’s Thursday Night Football match-up between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked in his own end zone by Cameron Wake on 3rd & 10 from their own eight-yard-line.

Safety.  Game over.  Dolphins win, 22-20.

Check it out:

That safety from Wake ended the Dolphins’ four-game losing streak.  He would finish the game with three sacks, two tackles-for-loss, five solo tackles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.

With numbers like that, it’s awfully hard to make fun of the dude for walking around in a sports bra after the game.
