Dolphins survive snow, wild finish

PITTSBURGH — Charles Clay bulled through safety Troy Polamalu and cornerback Cortez Allen to score a 12-yard touchdown with 2:53 left to put the Dolphins in front to stay and Miami survived snow and a wild finish for its first win in Pittsburgh in 23 years.

"I think I need some blood pressure medicine or something," Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. "That's December football."

On the final play, from the Pittsburgh 26-yard line, Ben Roethlisberger passed 20 yards to Emmanuel Sanders, who flipped the ball to Jerricho Cotchery, the first of five laterals that ended with Antonio Brown racing down the sideline to the end zone. But an official ruled Brown's left foot was out of bounds at the Miami 12. "What do you guys want me to say?'' Sanders said. "I'm going to stop playing football? No."
