No NFL team has ever had the leading rusher and sack leader in the same season, but the Dolphins have a great shot at becoming the first after this weekend.

Jason Taylor is almost a lock to win the sack title, as he enters the final weekend with 18.5 sacks, three more than Tampa Bay's Simeon Rice.

Meanwhile, Ricky Williams enters the last game with 1,668 yards, 52 more than San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson and 53 more than Kansas City's Priest Holmes.

Holmes won't be a factor because he's not playing Saturday when the Chiefs travel to Oakland. As for Tomlinson, his Chargers face Seattle on Sunday afternoon.

Barring a disaster, it appears history will be made one way or another.

The Dolphins have never had a player lead the league in rushing. Larry Csonka had the best finish ever, coming in third in 1971.

As for sacks, the closest a Dolphins player has come to leading the league was in 2000 when Trace Armstrong finished with 16, half a sack behind New Orleans' La'Roi Glover.

Keep in mind, though, that sacks became an official NFL stat only in 1982.
