Cameron Wake sacked Andy Dalton for a safety with 6:38 left in overtime, and the Miami Dolphins beat the visiting Cincinnati Bengals 22-20 on Thursday night.

On third-and-10 from the 8, Dalton retreated to the goal line and was tackled by Wake coming up the middle for the third overtime safety in NFL history. The officials immediately signaled the score, which was upheld after a replay review.

Wake had three sacks, and Cincinnati committed four turnovers that might have meant a difference of 17 points.

The Dolphins (4-4) snapped a four-game losing streak.

The Bengals (6-3) had a four-game winning streak snapped and might have lost All-Pro defensive tackle Geno Atkins for the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee. Atkins came into the game with a team-high five sacks and added another in the first quarter.

Redskins: Coach Mike Shanahan leveled a scathing critique at Albert Haynesworth, saying the former Washington defensive lineman was "lazy" and had a "lack of passion" and "lack of character."

Shanahan was responding to comments made this week by Haynesworth, who told Tennessee Sports Radio that Shanahan is "conniving," self-centered and will run quarterback Robert Griffin III "into the ground."

Asked for his reaction, Shanahan said: "When you don't get along with somebody as a head coach or an assistant coach, it usually falls into one of those areas -- lazy, lack of passion, and a lot of times lack of character. And he fits all three."

Haynesworth signed a $100 million free agent contract with the Redskins in 2009, but he and Shanahan clashed frequently after the coach arrived in Washington a year later.

Haynesworth became an NFL punch line when he needed 10 days to pass a conditioning test at the start of training camp and lost his starting job. He was eventually traded for a fifth-round draft pick and is perhaps the biggest free-agent bust in league history.

  • Safety Brandon Meriweather issued an apology by proxy, with players union chief DeMaurice Smith releasing a statement saying Meriweather is "sorry" over comments made about targeting opponents' knees.

    Bills: Quarterback Thad Lewis (ribs) missed his second straight practice and remains questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City. If Lewis is unable to play, the Bills (3-5) will start either undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel or newly signed free agent Matt Flynn, the former Raider.

    Chargers: Outside linebacker Jarret Johnson, who missed two games with an injured hamstring, is expected to play Sunday against Washington. Johnson is tied for the team lead with three sacks.
