In light of the World Series being over with, Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake demonstrated his own walk-off sack to end a back-and-forth game between his Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night at Sun Life Stadium. Wake was able to manhandle his way through a fatigued Bengal's offensive line to wrap up Andy Dalton for his third sack of the game. Take a look:
The game ending on a sack for a safety was the second time in NFL history. According to ESPN, there were two other times that a game ended on a safety.
The first was in 1989. The Minnesota Vikings beat the Los Angeles Rams 23-21 when Mike Merriweather blocked Dale Hatcher's punt and the ball rolled out of the end zone. The second time was in 2004. Alex Brown (Chicago Bears) sacked Billy Volek (Tennessee Titans) in the end zone and knocked the ball loose. Tennessee tackle Fred Miller recovered the ball, but was tackled by Adewale Ogunleye for a safety to give the Bears a 19-17 overtime win over the Titans.
Dolphins went on to erase their four game losing streak by beating Cincinnati Bengals 22-20. Not a good night if you are a Bengals fan.
Bengals lost on a safety in OT and they lost Geno Atkins to a torn ACL... Happy Halloween. — NFL Retweet (@NFLRT) November 1, 2013
