MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins were playing to win on Sunday and it worked.

Head coach Adam Gase talked about the team's improbable comeback in the 4th quarter against the Rams in Los Angeles.

Miami was down 10-7 in the final minute.

Gase was asked if he would have been happy playing for a tie. 

Gase said, "Nope.  It was either going to be a pick or a touchdown.  That's how we were going to... that game wasn't going into overtime.  That's how it was going to be."

The Dolphins comeback was led by Ryan Tannehill who threw two 4th quarter touchdown passes.

Gase said he has total confidence in his quarterback late in games.

Gase said, "He hasn't done anything to show me that he can't do things in the 4th quarter.  What your experiences are and what my experiences have been have been completely two different things.  I guess when we get into the 4th quarter and it's a close game, I feel confident.  Between him  being able to play in the 4th quarter and the deep balls, I'm kind of questioning your guys' evaluation skills right now.  I'm just glad you're not in personnel."

The Dolphins host the 49ers next Sunday.

San Francisco has a 1-9 record.

Right now, the Dolphins are just half-a-game out of the final playoff spot.
