Rolf Benirschke's 29-yard field goal gives San Diego a 41-38 overtime victory over Miami in the Orange Bowl, capping one of the most sensational games in NFL history. The Chargers blow an early 24-point lead but rally to tie the AFC divisional playoff on Dan Fouts' nine-yard TD pass in the final minute. Tight end Kellen Winslow is heroic, catching 13 passes for 166 yards and a TD and blocking a Miami field-goal attempt on the final play of regulation.
