There is little question about who the worst team in the NFL is. The Bengals lost their 14th game of the season, falling to the Dolphins 38-35 on the last play of overtime.

Depending on how you look it, the Bengals won as they will have the No. 1 draft pick this spring. The Dolphins (4-11) fell further down the draft order.

It was an entertaining game between teams that entered with a combined four victories.

The Dolphins should have won easily. They didn’t, needing an extra period before Jason Sanders kicked a 37-yard field goal with no time left in overtime.

The Bengals trailed 35-12 in the fourth quarter. They scored 23 points in the final 6:11 of regulation, tying it on a 25-yard pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Eifert on the final play of regulation followed by a Dalton run for the 2-point conversion.

Dalton completed 33 of 56 passes for 396 yards and four touchdowns. Tyler Boyd made nine catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 31 of 52 passes for 419 yards with four touchdowns and an interception. DeVante Parker caught five passes for 111 yards and a touchdown, Mike Gesicki making six receptions for 82 yards and two touchdowns, and Albert Wilson added seven catches for 79 yards.

  1. … and now… Bengals owner mike brown and family
    can pass up the talent of a Mark Andrews THREE TIMES
    when tight end need was glaring, draft some overrated receiving “talent”
    like embarrassments tyler boyd and john ross, and miss on any offensive lineman pick.

    REMEMBER: It’s all Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton’s fault

    Trade the pick because the team has WAY MORE holes than Swiss cheese.

    The 32nd ranked team in sacks sacked Dalton 4 times today!!!

  2. Of course… Dalton’s lucky.

    Dalton was benched for a bunch of games
    and he still has the 8th most sacks in the nfl.

    10 sacks less than the most in the nfl.

  3. My condolences to Joe Burrow and the entire Burrow family on the tragic loss of Joe’s career.

  4. That was the worst display of play calling by the Miami D coordinator in the last 2 minutes of the game
    That prevent defense only prevents you from winning the football game
    It almost makes me think that Miami wanted to lose the game once it got to one score.
    If they would of lost that game there would of been some serious questions being asked in that locker room to the coaches
    Well actually there should be some serious questions asked.
    To give up the entire field like that for 2 drives is embarrassing as a professional.

  5. The Dolphins will be fine. I think their target will be Tua. I don’t think any other tm will trade up to get ahead of them to take him. Cincy will take Burrow. Wash or Giants will take Chase Young. Wash, Giants or Det aren’t taking a QB. So I am not worried. Phins will draft 5th and take a chance on Tua. That’s it.

    If I wanted a QB I wouldn’t want to pick behind Detroit. They might be a perfect landing spot for Tua. He can heal for a year behind Stafford. Part of me wanted the Bengals to win yesterday so the Phins could pick Burrow and The Bengals would have to take Tua. I’m still not sure a healthy Tua is worse than Burrow.
