Miami Dolphins Sack Andy Dalton for Game-Ending Safety in OT

In a night of mistakes by Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, he was sacked in the end zone by Cameron Wake in overtime that gave the Miami Dolphins the 22-20 win on Thursday Night Football.

The two teams traded punts throughout extra time before the Bengals made a costly mistake. On 3rd-and-10 from Cincinnati's 8-yard line, Dalton couldn't find a receiver on the dropback and was sacked for the game-ending safety with 6:38 remaining in OT.

In case you were wondering, this doesn't happen very often:
