Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins Recap DEC 6TH 2020

Jason Sanders kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired in overtime to lead the host Miami Dolphins to a 38-35 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon.

Cincinnati forced overtime with a wild, 23-point, fourth-quarter rally that included three touchdowns in the final 6:11 and two in the last 29 seconds. The Bengals also made a pair of two-point conversions after the latter two touchdowns.

Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick passed for 419 yards and four touchdowns, including two to tight end Mike Gesicki.

Miami (4-11) also got a big game from wide receiver DeVante Parker, who made five catches for 111 yards and one touchdown. He surpassed 1,000 yards for the first time in his five-year NFL career. In addition, his nine TD grabs this season matches the combined total from his first four years.

With the loss, the Bengals (1-14) clinched the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. One of Cincinnati's highlights was Randy Bullock's franchise-record 57-yard field goal to end the first half.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton passed for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He now has 203 career TD passes. Tyler Boyd caught nine passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns for the Bengals.

Miami, which dominated early, led 21-6 at halftime. Rookie first-round pick Christian Wilkins -- a defensive tackle -- caught a 1-yard TD pass for a 7-0 lead.

The Dolphins made it 14-0 on a 7-yard pass to Parker. That touchdown was set up by another trick play, as Patrick Laird took a handoff and flipped the ball back to Fitzpatrick, who tossed a 51-yarder to Parker. It was Miami's longest play of the season.

In the second quarter, Cincinnati got first-and-goal at Miami's 4. But the Dolphins stopped three straight Joe Mixon runs, and the Bengals settled for Bullock's 20-yard field goal.

After a 31-yard TD grab by Gesicki, Bullock made his career-best 57-yarder after missing on his first two tries. Dolphins coach Brian Flores called timeout before the first kick, and the second miss was negated by penalty.

The teams traded TD passes in the third quarter: Gesicki for Miami, and Boyd's fingertip catch for Cincinnati.

Miami went up 35-12 when rookie running back Myles Gaskin got his first NFL touchdown, a 2-yarder with 11:12 left in the fourth.

But Cincinnati forced overtime with TD passes to C.J. Uzomah, Boyd and Tyler Eifert.

The play to Boyd came on fourth down, a 3-yarder with 29 seconds left. Eifert grabbed a two-point conversion pass.

The Bengals then recovered an onside kick for the first time since 2010, which led to a 25-yard TD pass to Eifert with no time left on the clock. Cincinnati still needed a two-point conversion, and Dalton ran to his right to force OT.

The expected battle between top-five pick rookie quarterbacks won't happen this Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Miami Dolphins.

Cincinnati's Joe Burrow -- the first overall pick in this year's NFL draft -- injured his left knee on Nov. 22 against Washington and is out for the season.

Miami's Tua Tagovailoa -- the fifth pick in April -- has an injured thumb on his throwing hand and was limited in practice this week. He missed last week's win over the New York Jets and is questionable against the Bengals (2-8-1).

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who opened this season as the starter before giving way to Tagovailoa, led Miami to a 20-3 victory over the winless Jets. Fitzpatrick is 4-3 as Miami's starter this season. Tagovailoa is 3-1.

But Dolphins coach Brian Flores said there is no quarterback controversy in Miami.

"If (Tagovailoa) is healthy," Flores said, "he's the guy."

Miami improved to 7-4 and is a game behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East standings.


NFL Point Spread and Over/Under Picks


Miami's defense is second in the NFL in points allowed (18.6). In fact, the defense has virtually carried the offense.

The Dolphins played the Jets without their top two running backs -- Myles Gaskin (knee) and Salvon Ahmed (shoulder). The next two running backs on the depth chart -- Matt Breida and Patrick Laird -- both lost fumbles against the Jets. Two more Dolphins running backs were out for at least some of this week's practices as DeAndre Washington (hamstring) and Malcolm Perry (foot) battled injuries.

In the Miami passing game, DeVante Parker has been targeted 79 times, turning that into 52 catches for 642 yards. All three of those figures lead the team, and his four touchdowns tie him with Preston Williams for the team lead.

Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is Miami's second-leading target (51 times). He has 30 catches for 449 yards and three touchdowns.

Flores said Tagovailoa is getting more comfortable with his pass-catchers. Fitzpatrick appears to be ahead of him in the "chemistry with receivers" category.

"I think (Tagovailoa) is getting better at it," Dolphins offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said. "He doesn't have that type of experience yet with these receivers."

For Cincinnati, this will be the Bengals' second straight game without Burrow.


Are You Ready for the Upcoming NBA Season?


Brandon Allen, who had been on the practice squad, vaulted over Bengals backup Ryan Finley and got the start in last week's 19-17 loss against the New York Giants.

Allen, selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the sixth round (2016) out of Arkansas, was 17-of-29 passing for 136 yards and a touchdown. He was also sacked twice and intercepted once.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Allen will get the nod against the Dolphins in what will be his fifth career start in the NFL.

"He gave us a chance," Taylor said of Allen. "He's a good decision-maker. Not everything was perfect. We knew there were going to be challenges. We needed guys around him to lift him up, and we didn't get enough of that, to be honest."

Like Miami, the Bengals have issues at running back, as leading rusher Joe Mixon is out with an injured right foot.

Veteran running back Gio Bernard -- a South Florida native -- is next on the depth chart, but he has been held to a total of 80 yards the past three games.

The Bengals' top two wide receivers are veteran Tyler Boyd (93 targets, 72 catches, 725 yards and 3 touchdowns) and rookie Tee Higgins (76 targets, 48 catches, 673 yards, 5 TDs).

We like the Bengals as underdogs to cover the NFL point spread.
