NOTES: I feel like we say it every week, but here we go again – the Chargers were devastated by another last second loss. This time against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9, and they have fallen to being the best 2-6 team of all time. With the Chargers, no matter the opponent, you can always rely on an entertaining and close battle. This game will be extra special, as we have two of the top three rookie QBs dueling it out in Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa. For Herbert and the Chargers, this is the game where they decide if they are going to allow the heartbreaking results define them as a team and give up on the season, or if they can use them to battle back and find some wins. Their running game and secondary have been weaknesses that led to these blown leads, so we’ll see if they have anything figured out and improve in order to take down this scorching hot Dolphins team that’s on a winning streak.

2020 has been weird, but did you ever think the Dolphins would be on a four-game winning streak? Well here we are, and they came through against the Los Angeles Rams on the defensive side and last week against the Arizona Cardinals on both the offensive and the defensive side. This really does look like a team that can fight for a wild card spot, or maybe even shock the Buffalo Bills and take the division. However, they can’t overlook the Chargers as this could be the perfect trap game where the Dolphins just glance at the Chargers record and gain all the confidence in the world. I don’t expect that to be the case with a disciplined head coach in Brian Flores, but just had to put it out there. Tagovailoa had to do everything for that offense in Week 9 as their top two RBs were hurting, which might be the case again. I do believe the Dolphins have what it takes to avoid an upset, but this will be a close affair.
