Series Trend: The Dolphins and Chargers linked up for games every year between 2013-2017. Miami was winners in four of those five contests including a late game-winner in 2016 to give the Dolphins their fourth-straight victory courtesy of a 60-yard interception returned for a touchdown by linebacker Kiko Alonso. After taking 2018 off in the series, the Chargers came to Hard Rock Stadium last September in a game won convincingly by the visitors.

Chargers Scouting Report

Los Angeles' Record: 2-6

Last Game: Lost 31-26 vs. Las Vegas

The Chargers are 3-14 in one-score games over the last two seasons. Despite the undesirable conclusion of many of those tight contests, the roster is chock full of talent. Los Angeles features the 13th and 14th-highest rated deep ball threats (yardage gained on passes 20-plus yards downfield) in wide receivers Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton. Veteran wide receiver Keenan Allen is second in the NFL with 62 receptions, and rookie quarterback Justin Herbert has thrown 17 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Defensively, no team blitzes less than the Chargers (11.9 percent blitz rate), but Joey Bosa (37 quarterback pressures, per Pro Football Focus) and Melvin Ingram (23 pressures in five games) provide plenty of pass rush. Per Pro Football Reference, the Chargers' 22.9 percent pressure rate is 11th in the NFL.
