In their matchup previous year, the Dolphins defeated the Chargers 31-24 as linebacker Kiko Alonso intercepted Philip Rivers' pass and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown with 1:01 left to give Miami the win.
Will the Los Angeles Chargers be able to have an impressive debut in their new home when they welcome the Miami Dolphins to town today at 4:05PM ET? That left Los Angeles with a No. 7 overall pick in this year's draft, where they selected WR Mike Williams out of Clemson.
But it doesn't really help when Los Angeles isn't welcoming the Chargers. For the next three years the Chargers will play at the almost 30,000 seat Stub Hub Center in Carson.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons shockingly took an unauthorized leave of absence from the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and as a result, failed to play in the team's game against the San Diego Chargers.
You have to ignore the final stats in the Chargers 24-21 loss to the Broncos last Monday night.
With some family members and friends still in Florida dealing with the remnants of Hurricane Irma, the Miami Dolphins began preparations for their first regular-season game with a practice here on Wednesday.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase will discuss Timmons' situation after the game, team spokesman Jason Jenkins says. Can Cutler return to some of the good years he had in Denver and Chicago, respectively, and give Miami a chance to top Tom Brady and New England?
Check out what happens when Cutler tries to throw the ball to the end zone in an effort to score a touchdown as the first half expired. Kenny Stills didn't have a huge game statistically but caught Jay Cutler's only touchdown of the day. "He missed two field goals".
Spanos may be the worst owner in sports but his team has one of the best tight ends in history.
The Chargers had one last opportunity for victory. Chargers QB Philip Rivers needs 209 yards passing to pass Vinny Testaverde (46,233) for 11th place in National Football League history.
It wasn't without weirdness, though; with no timeouts remaining, Rivers ran a QB sneak to the right in an apparent attempt to get the ball on the right hash for rookie kicker Younghoe Koo. The Chargers have now lost two straight and now must get ready for their AFC West rival in the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday.
