LAS VEGAS — Ryan Fitzpatrick completed a 41-yard pass to Mack Hollins while being dragged down by the facemask and the Miami Dolphins moved one step closer to a playoff berth when Jason Sanders' 44-yard field goal with 1 second remaining gave them a 26-25 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders chose to run down the clock for a go-ahead field goal instead of trying for a touchdown with Josh Jacobs going down on purpose at the 1-yard line and Derek Carr taking a knee to set up Daniel Carlson's 22-yard field goal with 19 seconds left.

But the Dolphins had some late-game magic from Fitzpatrick and moved a half-game ahead of Baltimore in the AFC playoff race.
