Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins Pick & Prediction DEC 22TH 2019


The Cincinnati Bengals can clinch the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft with a loss to the host Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Cincinnati is two games clear of Miami, Washington and the New York Giants - who play each other Sunday - for the worst record in the league, and Dolphins coach Brian Flores has made it clear that his club won't be lying down.

"I don't know whose narrative that is," Flores told reporters about tanking. "Like I've said all year, try to win every game. That's kind of my thought process." The Bengals' path to the top pick may be a little easier if running back Joe Mixon - a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday with a calf injury - cannot play or isn't 100 percent. Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been running for his life lately - he leads the team in rushing - while being sacked 30 times in the last eight games. Flores said he will stick with his 37-year-old over Josh Rosen, 22, telling reporters: "I think that is in the best interest of this team. So I think this is, philosophically, I think people are going to feel differently about it."

TV: 1 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Pick O/U: 46.5

ABOUT THE BENGALS (1-13): Mixon has rushed for 282 yards in his last two games and is 75 shy of his second straight 1,000-yard season. Andy Dalton sat for three games as Cincinnati took a look at rookie Ryan Finley but Dalton returned three games ago to engineer a 22-6 victory over the New York Jets. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had six tackles, a sack, forced fumble and pass defended in last week's 34-13 loss to New England, and has five sacks and five PDs in his last four contests.

ABOUT THE DOLPHINS (3-11): Fitzpatrick has thrown 12 touchdown passes against seven interceptions in his last eight games, totaling 279 yards and two TDs in a 36-20 loss at the New York Giants last week. DeVante Parker (eight TD receptions this season), who scored twice last week, has 20 receptions for 294 yards and two TDs in his last two home games, and is 46 yards away from his first 1,000-yard season. Tight end Mike Gesicki is Fitzpatrick's second-most popular target with 41 catches with his first two career TDs coming in the last four weeks.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Dalton has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 11 straight games versus the AFC East.

2. Fitzpatrick has rushed for 219 yards and is one of three quarterbacks leading his team in rushing along with Baltimore's Lamar Jackson and Arizona's Kyler Murray.

3. The Bengals have won the last two meetings, including 27-17 last season with Dalton throwing a touchdown pass to Mixon and Cincinnati scoring on a punt return and a fumble return.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins

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.
