Dolphins vs. Chargers: Highlights, game tracker and more

The Chargers defense played very well throughout the game, setting the tone, however the offense continued to struggle and didn't assist themselves with several penalties that killed them on their first two drives of the opening quarter.

They draw nearly three times as many fans as the Chargers in a much larger stadium.

The Chargers moved up the coast just a few months ago and San Diego Chargers fans still can't accept it. It's been dubbed the "Epic in Miami" since in league lore.

Cutler escaped pressure and found Kenny Stills on a pretty play-action TD pass to tie the game in the third. Miami is coming off a 2016 season in which it went 10-6 and returned to the AFC Playoffs for the first time in eight years. He appeared in control of the Dolphins offense from start to finish and played mistake-free. He hit his second field goal of the game in the third quarter which had Miami trailing 17-13.He also hit a 35-yard field goal in the fourth quarter that cut the Miami deficit to 17-16.

In Week 1 the Bengals were trashed 20-0 by the Baltimore Ravens, and Andy Dalton was only able to average 5.5 yards per pass through the game, accumulating an horrendous 28.4 passer rating. No one ever walked in to Qualcomm Stadium and said, "I love L.T. and Philip Rivers and Mike Goff".

While Rivers and the Chargers didn't have to use a silent count at home, Cutler and the Dolphins didn't either as the road team, so the noise level cut both ways.

Can Los Angeles contain all of Miami's weapons?

He was the No. 1 target for Jay Cutler all game long, and came up with some huge catches throughout.

The 40-year-old completed 30 out of 39 passes for 447 yards without an interception. "I think our guys are just ready to get going". The Dolphins have an explosive receiving corps in Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVonte Parker to also go along with a risky tight end in Julius Thomas. You're used to the National Basketball Association being a make-or-miss league.

You have to ignore the final stats in the Chargers 24-21 loss to the Broncos last Monday night. The one Chargers turnover cost them seven Denver points, but they turned those two takeaways into 14 points. Rivers ran out of time, but threw three touchdowns but only amassed 192 yards.

The Chargers will get a piece of revenues in the new stadium they will share with the Rams, but much of it is earmarked to pay off the cost of the estimated $2.6 billion stadium.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn does not agree.
