MIAMI -- Dan Carpenter kicked a 43-yard field goal on the final play Sunday, and the Miami Dolphins scored 17 points in the last 8:08 to rally past the Seattle Seahawks 24-21.

Rookie Ryan Tannehill drove Miami 65 yards in the final 92 seconds to set up the winning kick. He finished completing 18 of 26 passes for 253 yards and a score.

Leon Washington returned a kickoff for a touchdown for the eighth time to tie the NFL career record and put Seattle ahead with eight minutes left. Miami answered with an 80-yard drive capped by Tannehill's 29-yard scoring pass to Charles Clay, making it 21-all.

The Dolphins (5-6) broke a three-game losing streak. The Seahawks (6-5), who are unbeaten at home this year, lost for the fifth time in six road games.
