Five things to watch: Dolphins vs. Chargers

Five things to watch: Dolphins vs. Chargers

The Chargers welcome the Dolphins, who will play their first game of the season on Sunday.

The total has gone under in 13 of the Dolphins' last 14 games against the Chargers. Take a look at both team's keys to victory on Sunday afternoon.

The Chargers' offense was stop-and-go in Denver this past Monday, but that was against a top-tier Broncos defense. They lost at Pittsburgh in their first postseason game in almost a decade but now look forward to taking the next step this year.

That being said, they are going up against another rough and physical defensive-line this weekend.

Cutler will have to be wary of the Chargers' pass rush, which is led by Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. They will need any and every person to be a source of noise in order to make the game hard for their opponents and increase the energy. It turns out the Chargers have a few big receivers (Keenan Allen, 6-feet-2, Tyrell Williams, 6-feet-4 and Dontrelle Inman 6-feet-3) and so it would seem Maxwell will get a chance to play on Sunday. If Miami provided Jay Cutler with a running game, things could get very interesting for the former Chicago Bears franchise quarterback.

The Dolphins defense was in the bottom three in the National Football League allowing 140 yards rushing a game to opposing offenses last season. The Bolts were down 24-7 in the fourth quarter with Denver in complete control.

Steve King , a Republican congressman, said: "The Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix ". Yes, that's a possible scenario, one among many that to me all lead back to my previous paragraph.

"Well, we'll always have a plan for that, but if he can make it back, that would certainly help", Lynn said.

For now those are not answers we know but we will let you know as soon as more information becomes available.

Gase said players did a good job of checking in with the organization if they did not travel on the team charter and then getting to Los Angeles by Tuesday. Two years later, Verrett's 2016 season was cut short because of a partially torn ACL in his left knee, sustained in a game against the New Orleans Saints.

Despite its limited size, there are many who are hopeful that the potential of the petite space will be an asset to the Chargers as they try to become relevant to the Los Angeles sports market and gain a fan base.

In fact, Ingram was particularly blunt Thursday when asked what problems Cutler poses: "None. He's kind of a wild card". Maxwell really struggled at the start of last season and struggled in the preseason this year.

Can Los Angeles contain all of Miami's weapons?

The only reason the Chargers made that 4th quarter nearly comeback was Denver committed a pair of turnovers.
