MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins finally won one, thanks to a break and a big play in overtime.

After Baltimore's Matt Stover missed a 44-yard field goal try in the extra period, Miami's Greg Camarillo turned a short completion into a 64-yard touchdown pass play and the Dolphins beat the Ravens, 22-16.

With the 1972 perfect-season Dolphins cheering them on, Miami rallied from a 10-point third-quarter deficit and ended a 16-game losing streak.

Camarillo sprinted to the end zone for his first NFL touchdown, and his jubilant teammates ran after him to create a mob scene in the corner of the stadium.

With their first victory since Dec. 10, 2006, the Dolphins (1-13) avoided matching the worst start in NFL history. Cam Cameron earned his first victory as an NFL coach.

The Ravens (4-10) lost for the eighth time in a row, extending a franchise record.

Quoteworthy: "In my suite it was like winning the Super Bowl." -- Wayne Huizenga, Dolphins owner
