Miami snuck past Seattle, 24-21 Sunday. A late-game charge rallied the Dolphins to the win with 17 points scored in just over the final eight minutes of the game. Dan Carpenter‘s 43-yard field goal on the final play clinched it, and Miami advanced to 5-6 on the season.

Seattle was ahead with eight minutes left thanks to a kickoff return for a touchdown from Leon Washington, but Ryan Tannehill stepped up in the final 92 seconds, driving 65 yards to set up Carpenter’s kick and snap a three-game losing streak for the Dolphins.

He became the first Washington quarterback to throw four touchdown passes in consecutive games.
