CINCINNATI (AP) — Domata Peko got a sack on the first play, then popped up and did his rendition of a popular dance. He's not the Cincinnati Bengals lineman breaking out the moves.

The Bengals (3-1) lead the NFL with 17 sacks heading into their game Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium against the Miami Dolphins (1-3). They're getting sacks in bunches thanks to a young-and-improving line.

Tackle Geno Atkins had a pair of sacks of Blaine Gabbert during a 27-10 win over Jacksonville last Sunday. He leads interior linemen in the NFL with five sacks. The Bengals have had six sacks in each of their last two games — the first time they've done that since 2001.

Twelve of the 17 sacks have come from the linemen.
