Sacks, defeats mounting for Dolphins DE Wake

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — While Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake accumulates sacks at a rate unprecedented in franchise history, his team keeps getting thrown for losses.

Barring a late-season surge starting Sunday at San Francisco, the Dolphins (5-7) will finish with a losing record for the fourth consecutive year. It so happens Wake, one of the NFL's premier pass rushers, joined Miami four years ago.

The Dolphins are 25-35 since 2009, but don't blame Wake. During that span he's tied for fourth in the NFL with 38½ sacks, and ranks fourth in this year with 10½.

This season, 7½ of his sacks have come in defeats, including one Sunday against New England. But he keeps trying.

Wake and the rest of the run defense will be seriously tested by the 49ers, whose ground attack ranks second in the NFL.
