BRONCOS O-LINE PREPARES FOR MIAMI PASS RUSH
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) – The Miami Dolphins are among the league leaders in quarterback sacks and this Sunday they are facing the quarterback who has been sacked the least in Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos. Miami’s defensive ends – Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon – have combined for 14 of the team’s 30 sacks. Wake has 8.5; Vernon 5.5. The Dolphins are tied for third in the NFL with Kansas City and Minnesota. They trail Buffalo (39) and Philadelphia (33). Manning has been sacked just 11 times in 10 games, fewest among all quarterbacks. The combination of good blocking and Manning’s effectiveness in getting rid of the ball quickly has helped keep that number down, but the Dolphins will certainly look at how St. Louis pressured him last week.
