DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Amid rumblings of dissent within the Miami Dolphins, they've managed a memorable overtime win that might save their season.

The question now is whether the team's first victory in 39 days will quell any discord.

When coach Joe Philbin was asked Friday if he's satisfied with the Dolphins' chemistry, he referred to their 22-20 win over Cincinnati 12 hours earlier, saying the character of the team was revealed.

Cameron Wake became only the third NFL player to end an overtime game with a sack when he tackled Andy Dalton at the goal line in the 69th minute Thursday.

The victory put the brakes on a tailspin by Miami (4-4) that included a four-game losing streak and talk of dissension between coaches and among players.
