For all the talk about the multiple looks the Dolphins gave the Patriots last Monday, one thing remained constant. Every time Tom Brady looked across the line of scrimmage, he saw Ndamukong Suh, T.J. McDonald, Reshad Jones and Kiko Alonso. That’s 61 snaps. It was a trying night for all four Dolphins defenders — even more so, coming at the end of a regular season with no bye week — but for a player like Suh, it can’t get much more demanding than playing every snap at defensive tackle. Cameron Wake, the guy who lines up to Suh, knows this, and his respect for Suh’s stamina couldn’t be greater. “Out of this world,” Wake said. “Obviously I’m tremendously honored and pleased to have him on my side and playing on the good-guy Dolphins. It’s incredible, but again, surprising? No. I’ve been with him long enough to see what he’s capable of. I’m not shocked.” This isn’t just about quantity, but quality. Suh had three tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, two quarterback hits and one pass defensed in the 27-20 victory over New England.
Dolphins’ Ndamukong Suh never came off field, and Cameron Wake can’t stop being impressed
