Dolphins' ground game on pace to be team's worst

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins are on pace to break the 25-year-old franchise record for fewest rushing yards in a season.

With 22 yards in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, the Dolphins increased their season total to 348, or 69.6 per game. That's not a recipe for success, and the Dolphins (3-2) take a two-game losing streak into this week's bye.

Ryan Tannehill has been sacked an NFL-high 24 times, in part because opposing pass rushers aren't worried about Miami's ground game.

So far the Dolphins are less productive on the ground than even the 1988 team, which had the only sub-.500 finish in the Dan Marino era. Their rushing yardage is skimpy in part because at their current rate, they'll break the 1967 team record for fewest carries in a season.
