Dolphins defense Wake-ing up in Week 6

(It had to be done)

The Miami Dolphins have opened their Week 6 contest against the Tennessee Titans aggressively. The offense is doing its part on the way to a 17-3 lead with 5 minutes to go in the first half. The defense, though, is starting to look like the defense everyone expected to see when the season started.

Cameron Wake has taken the lead for the defense today, recording three sacks, with two forced fumbles, already on the day. The play above is the second of the sacks and the first fumble. He backed that up a possession later when he again stripped Marcus Mariota on another sack.

The Dolphins have 224 yards of total offense in the first half, with 120 of those coming on the ground. The defense has allowed 136 yards thus far, though Tennessee is currently moving the ball into Miami territory.
