      Down two starters on the offensive line, the dolphins signed David Arkin, the Cowboys 4th round pick in 2011. Arkin 6-5, 306 pounds, played college at Missouri State. In his two years in the league, Arkin has spent the majority of his time on the practice squad.

      * Won the Turnover Differential 4-1. The difference in the game.
      * Cameron Wake....WOW! Walk off safety. 3 sacks and FF. Unbelievable impact.
      * Ryan Tannehill. This was the game I was looking for him to have. Managed the game beautifully. He went 20-28, 208 yards, a rush TD and NO TURNOVERS. He got the team into better plays during the game. He handled the offense so well. With about a minute left and one timeout RT leads the team down the field to get into position to tie the game with a field goal. Excellent night.
      * Mike Wallace. Great to see him comeback with a tremendous game. 82 yards on 6 catches. The PI he drew was a huge play in the game that it at least flipped field position that eventually pinned the Bengals to set up the Wake Safety. Wallace seemed much more comfortable tonight.
      * Lamar Miller. He has had two straight excellent games. Tonight, he went over the century mark with 105 yards on 16 carrries with a long of 41.
      * Brian Hartline's clutch catch on the sideline on the game tying drive. The toe tap was incredible.
      * THE OFFENSIVE LINE (yes, I was able to type "offensive line" under positives. 157 yards rushing for 5.2 a rush. The pass protection was solid. 3 sacks, but RT's pocket was pretty solid. The Bengals have an excellent Dline and the Fins big guys held their own.
      * Props to Tyson Clabo. The guy is at the end of his career yet he came in and gave solid effort.
      * Nate Garner. I am huge Garner supporter. I think he should have been starting. Be that as it may, Garner came in for Richie Incognito after he suffered an injury and Garner did not miss a beat. Nobody should be surprised that he was ready and played well. Solid pro.
      * Paul Soliai was a load inside. He had a sack and PD. He pushed the pocket well as well. Stout versus the run.
      * The pressure by the DT's made a huge impact tonight. Soliai, Randy Starks and Jared Odrick collapsed the pocket all night.
      * Dannell Ellerbe. The guy took some heat this week by "experts" in the national media. Ellerbe was awesome tonight especially in pass defense. He had 4 PD's and an interception.
      * On Ellerbe's pick, Jimmy Wilson had good coverage and separated the ball from the receiver as he juggled the ball.
      * Brent Grimes deserves a long day off. He played his butt off tonight. The 94 yard pick six was a huge play. He was gutsy taking on ball carriers. He took on the bigger A.J. Green all night and more than held his own.
      * Dimitri Patterson's interception at the end of the half. The Bengals inexplicably were trying to score at the end of the half, promptly throw a pick to Patterson. It sets up an important FG at the end of the half.
      * Olivier Vernon was very active today. He seems to be turning the corner for the team.
      * The Red Zone stop by the defense on the 3rd Cincinnati drive. Miami had just got a turnover, but missed a FG....Cincinnati was driving, but came up short of the end zone. Big stop when you look at the final result.
      * ALL defenders deserve credit. They played hard and a TON of snaps. They played their asses off.
      * Brandon Fields punted well all night. However, the last punt that pinned the Bengals back leading to the Wake Safety was most important.
      * Credit to Caleb Sturgis. No doubt he was in a slump, but missed his first attempt tonight...a chip shot. Yet, Sturgis came back strong later in the game with a field goal near the end of the half and a game tying FG at the end of regulation.
      * We must give credit to Mike Sherman. Sherman finally committed to the run and had great success. The run game design was awesome. Through formation variation, motion and going big up front using Will Yeatman, the Fins were creative with the running game. 30 running attempts to 28 passes. Outstanding.
      * Credit to Coach Turner for having back ups ready to play today. It has been a tough year for him, but tonight he should be proud.
      * Joe Philbin. In a crazy, crazy, crazy week, Joe found a way to keep the team together, fight hard and his team found a way to win a crazy one.

      The four game losing streak has been snapped. The Dolphins remained perfect on Thursday games in October and perfect in games played on Halloween. All thanks to star defensive end Cameron Wake, who sacked Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton for a safety during overtime. The safety gave the Dolphins a 22-20 victory and became the third team in NFL history to win a game in this fashion.

      The Dolphins entered Thursday's game in a slump having lost four straight after starting the season 3-0. After jumping out to a 17-3 lead, thanks in part to a 94 yard interception return for a touchdown by Brent Grimes, the Dolphins saw their lead evaporate for the third straight game as the Bengals pulled ahead 20-17 in the final two minutes. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill led an impressive two minute drive that allowed the Dolphins to tie the game at 20-20 and send the game into overtime. Then Cameron Wake did the rest and became the hero of the game.

      The 4-4 Dolphins head to Tampa Bay next Monday night to take on the 0-7 Buccaneers.
