THE TEAM NEWS

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS

  • Los Angeles Chargers failed to hold on to a half-time lead of 10 points as they were beaten by Houston for a second successive loss and they will be under pressure to get back to winning ways against the struggling Dolphins.
  • The Chargers may have issues at TE for this game with Virgil Green potentially set to join Hunter Henry on the injury list and his absence from the first practice of the week will be a cause for concern ahead of Sunday’s contest.
  • Despite the issues at TE, the Chargers are set for a significant boost at RB with star man Melvin Gordon set to end his holdout and return to practice on Thursday, although he is not expected to play until Week 5 at the earliest.

MIAMI DOLPHINS

  • Miami were competitive early on against Dallas but were ultimately condemned to a third consecutive heavy defeat to begin the season, conceding over 44 points per game so far.
  • Despite the introduction of off-season recruit Josh Rosen to the side, the former Arizona QB was unable to guide his side to their first TD of the season although they did finally end their scoring drought with two first-half FGs.
  • The Dolphins have had to place RG Danny Isidora on IR due to a foot injury whilst WR Allen Hurns will have to come through the concussion protocol after suffering a heavy head knock against the Cowboys.

THE PREDICTION

Los Angeles Chargers have not had the start to the season they envisaged and sit at 1-2 after three games. They head to 0-3 Miami which should represent a good chance to turn their fortunes around and with how poor the Dolphins have looked through Week 3, the Chargers should be comfortable winners. The Dolphins have only managed two FGs from three matches and unless they fix their issues on both sides of the ball, another big defeat could be on the cards.
