Wake offIt was lights out on Halloween night at Sun Life Stadium.  The Miami Dolphins vs. Cincinnati Bengals game earns the No. 3 spot on the Top 10 Moments at Sun Life Stadium in 2013.

The Thursday night game started by turning the lights off at Sun Life Stadium, with an electric player introduction through smoke and fireworks, accompanied by a special cheerleader Halloween performance.

The excitement extended on to the field of play as the Bengals and Dolphins battled to a 20-20 tie to end regulation.  The night was filled with thrilling plays; including Brent Grimes 94-yard interception return for a touchdown that gave the Dolphins a 17-3 lead in third quarter, his first touchdown of his career.

But no one was prepared for what was about to come in overtime.

With 6:38 remaining in overtime, Cameron Wake sacked Bengals’ quarterback Andy Dalton in the west endzone of Sun Life Stadium, resulting in a safety and giving the Dolphins a 22-20 victory.  It was Wake’s third sack of the evening.

Cameron Wake’s “walk-off” sack marked only the third time in NFL history that a game had ended with a safety in overtime.

The electric atmosphere and historical ending is well deserving of the No 3. Spot on the Top 10 Moments at Sun Life Stadium in 2013.
