Chargers take the Dolphins Dip in South Beach


IT Sports Wire

The Chargers head to South Florida for the second time in as many seasons, kicking off on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 1:05 p.m. from Hard Rock Stadium.

The Chargers won, 30-10, at Miami last year, the largest win for the Bolts in Miami and the largest in the series since a 25-point home win in 1993. The Dolphins hold a 16-14 all-time advantage, including an 8-4 record at home.

The Chargers sport the AFC’s top-ranked offense behind Justin Herbert’s conference leading 306.6 passing yards per game. The No. 6 overall selection from April’s draft is on pace to break the NFL rookie record for touchdown passes in a season, having thrown 17 already to rank tied for fifth in the AFC. Keenan Allen keeps climbing record books and is tied for No. 2 for receptions in team history.

In last week’s game, practice squad call-up Kalen Ballage ran for a team-high 69 yards and for a score.

Winners of four straight, Miami looks to continue the streak under Tua Tagovailoa, the No. 5 overall selection in April’s draft.

Through three career games he has 350 passing yards and three touchdowns for a 103.8 passer rating.

The Dolphins defense is led by Emmanuel Ogbah’s seven sacks and Xavien Howard’s four interceptions.
