Cameron Wake described it as a movie moment.
If so, it would have to be classified as a drama. Third down, getting late in overtime, and the Miami Dolphins had the Cincinnati Bengals pinned deep in their side of the field.
And in the final scene of the night, Wake stole the show.
Somehow unblocked and unnoticed, Wake sacked Cincinnati's Andy Dalton for a safety with 6:38 left in overtime, giving the Dolphins a wild 22-20 win over the Bengals and getting Miami to .500 at the midpoint of its season.
''We don't get too many opportunities to do things like that,'' Wake said.
It was just the third time in NFL history that an overtime game ended on a safety, and it came from a Pro Bowl end who had 2 1/2 sacks in Week 1 and pretty much spent most of the next two months fighting his way through an injury. But he finished with three sacks on Thursday night, the fourth time in his career that he had that many in a game.
Dalton said his eyes were elsewhere on the last play.
