Success in the NFL basically comes down to what happens on 3rd Down. Offenses that convert 3rd Downs are usually very good. Defenses that stop offenses on 3rd Down are usually very good. Considering offenses throw over 80% of the time on 3rd Down, getting a sack is very important for a Defense.
Miami Ranked 3rd in the NFL in getting sacks on 3rd Down. Imagine how good they could be if they had another pass rusher besides Wake?
