Dolphins Lawrence Timmons not with the team

Dolphins Lawrence Timmons not with the team

29th regular-season meeting.

The Dolphins will finally play their first game of the young National Football League season and will likely have to shake off first-game jitters in order to be competitive. To commemorate the special occasion, there will be many festivities and highlights throughout game day. Rivers will be hoping to avenge a 31-24 defeat against Miami previous year, which was punctuated by an Alonso pick-six late in the fourth quarter. James knows he'll have to pay attention to who is in front of him because the Chargers will switch defensive end assignments based on opposing formation or just feel. If Miami can run the ball and stop the run, life will be easy.

Miami hired Adam Gase over Lynn two years ago, and ended up going to the playoffs for the first time in almost a decade. Chargers - WR Mike Williams (back), CB Jason Verrett (knee) and S Reyshawn Jenkins (concussion) have all been ruled out.

What problems does Jay Cutler present to Chargers? Miami will not only be fresh, but it will offer a balanced offensive attack led by new quarterback Jay Cutler and bruising running back Jay Ajayi. If they continue missing tackles and not getting to the outside, Miami will beat them.

At this moment in time, we have Landry down for 5.2 receptions, 61.0 yards and 0.39 touchdowns on 8.0 targets against the Los Angeles Chargers. Tunsil, a starter at left guard last season, is a first-round pick who has loads of potential but did not have a great preseason. I've got all the good pass rushers. He had 1.5 sacks last week against Denver.

The total has gone under in 13 of the Dolphins' last 14 games against the Chargers. Gordon was limited to 70 yards on 24 carries a year ago against Miami.

A 41-year-old man sprayed them with hydrochloric acid from a spray canister which is available in DIY shops. Acid attacks have become particularly common in the United Kingdom over the past few years.

Even in a lame-duck situation past year with fans understanding the team was likely headed to Los Angeles, the Chargers still averaged 57,204 fans in eight games at Qualcomm Stadium.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Chargers TE Hunter Henry.

The Chargers are seeking their first win after dropping their opener at the Denver Broncos on Monday night. Not only didn't he have a catch in the loss at Denver, but he wasn't even targeted.

The NFL team was forced to leave their facility due to Hurricane Irma.

The Dolphins' support staff then made sure Gase, his coaches and players had everything they needed throughout the week. Needs one to break tie with Tony Gonzalez (111). Maybe he just wanted some In-N-Out burgers or maybe he woke up and realized he's playing for the Dolphins.
