Miami Dolphins under enormous pressure today vs. Chargers

Miami Dolphins under enormous pressure today vs. Chargers

The Chargers' offense and defense seemed to begin to gel by the end of the fourth quarter, allowing the Bolts to make the comeback.

Yet, he is not expected to play Sunday versus the Los Angeles Chargers, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. They must be present and not absent. "These guys move quickly and they get things done at an extreme rate". Parker should still be able to put together a very good game despite the Chargers' most recent upgrades in their secondary.

Hopefully for the Dolphins, he resembles the Broadway Joe who led the Jets to an upset win over the Colts in the Super Bowl and not the one finishing his career with the Rams with creaky knees. The latest ever opener for the Dolphins came in 1975 when they face the Buffalo Bills on September 22. 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. Therefore the Chargers need to be wise in all they do.

Rookie Desmond King, a fifth-round pick out of Iowa who was a preseason standout but played only three defensive snaps Monday night, will see more action.

Dolphins (+4) over CHARGERS: The second-half energy expended by Los Angeles' old-and-new National Football League team may not be available here against one of the sides whose opener was postponed by Irma. Hence, if they expect to win, on offense they need to run the ball to open up their brilliant passing attack.

Last week against Denver, Gordon finished with 54 rushing yards on 18 carries. The only reason the Chargers made that 4th quarter nearly comeback was Denver committed a pair of turnovers. The Dolphins' season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was postponed Sunday, so it will be an eager club at the ready for the Chargers in their first home opener in L.A. since 1960. They were getting beaten off the edges and letting interior pressure up the middle, which gave Philip Rivers zero time to throw and Melvin Gordon without any running lanes.

The defense, which has been a strong point in past seasons, picked off two MI passes and returned them for scores - but also gave up 33 points in the loss. This because there a few players out with injury and that leans in favor to Miami.

In a wild season opener against the division rival Broncos, the Chargers very almost rallied from a 24-7 fourth quarter deficit only to come up short in a 24-21 loss.
