Just three weeks ago the San Diego Chargers seemed to control their destiny as they looked toward the NFL playoffs. Today they travel to Miami in a game that could have playoff implications if both they and the Dolphins need to rely on a wild card spot. If that proves true, you’ll want to watch San Diego Chargers vs Miami Dolphins online free live or watch the Chargers / Dolphins game on CBS to see who gets the tie-breaker.
Recent and year-old history favor the Dolphins. Miami won the last time these teams met, a 20-16 victory last November that dealt the Chargers their third loss in a row. In that game Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 22 of 35 passes for 268 yards and a touchdown, and Miami’s backfield ran for 104 yards.
The Chargers enter today’s game having lost two in a row, much as they had last year. Their loss two weeks ago against Kansas City was a 23-20 heart-breaker, while last Sunday’s 21-35 loss to the Denver Broncos was a bit less draining.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers passed for 252 yards and three TDs in the loss, which left San Diego potentially reliant on an AFC wild-card playoff slot. Miami may be too, so as we watch San Diego Chargers vs Miami Dolphins online free live streaming, we could very well see a game with big playoff implications.
With Rivers and Tannehill both passing well, the deciding factor could be who wins the ground. Miami’s been on a roll with Knowshon Moreno, Lamar Miller and even Tannehill, who has three runs of 30 yards or more in the past three games. San Diego hasn’t had the same success, and since their D allows 110.9 yards on the ground, that could be all the edge Miami needs.
