That was a badly needed win for the Miami Dolphins.

What a great game by the defense. They made plays everywhere, and that's what it takes to win in this game. Make some plays and you have great chance to win. Not enough can be said about Cameron Wake. What a difference maker he is. Wow! He had three sacks, a strip, a fumble recovery, and the nail in the coffin safety to win the game in overtime. Whew, that is a full night's work.

Honorable mention must go to Brent Grimes, Dimitri Patterson, Jared Odrick, Dannell Ellerbe, Phillip Wheeler, and Olivier Vernon. On a night that the Bengals ran over 90 plays this defense stood up and made play after play when it counted. That is how you win games. They actually played exactly as the words in the Dolphins Davie practice facility say: "Sound, Smart, Tough"

This is what I expected when this season began. A kick-ass defense and an offense that could get the job done when it was needed. I have nothing more to say. This week the Dolphins did the talking.
