If the Dolphins are going to come back against the Falcons, they may have to do it without Cameron Wake.
Their star pass-rusher is out with a knee injury, and his return has been termed questionable.
The Falcons were ripe to be pressured without starting left tackle Sam Baker, but Wake’s absence will keep them from taking full advantage.
Of course, it helps the pass protection when you can run efficiently, and the Falcons have 97 rushing yards and 22:48 worth of possession. Atlanta’s up 13-10 at halftime of a game that’s flying by.
