MIAMI, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Olindo Mare kicked a 51-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining Sunday night to give the Miami Dolphins a 10-7 win over the Cleveland Indians.

A.J. Feeley, who passed for 176 yards and a touchdown, directed the game-winning, 40-yard drive inside the final two minutes.

Randy McMichael caught nine of Feeley's passes for the Dolphins (4-11), who improved to 3-3 under interim Coach Jim Bates.

The win came a day after Miami reached an agreement with Louisiana State's Nick Saban to take over the team for the 2005 season.

For the Indians (3-12), Lee Suggs ran for 143 yards and broke Jim Brown's 45-year franchise record with 38 carries in Cleveland's ninth loss in a row.

Luke McCown completed 9-of-16 attempts for 161 yards and was intercepted twice. He threw a 58-yard TD pass to Dennis Northcutt in the first quarter.
