Dolphins CRUSH Chargers

This was the start of a tough four game stretch for the Dolphins and they couldn't have started off any better. In one of their most complete games in a long time, the Dolphins crushed the Chargers 37-0. It was so bad for the Chargers that Phillip Rivers was on the bench at the end of the third quarter.

San Diego had one good drive, their opening drive. They drove to Miami's 22 where they had a fourth and one. They went for it and Rashad Jones dropped Branden Oliver for a one yard loss and that was pretty much it for the Chargers on this day. The Dolphins forced Rivers into four turnovers, sacked him three times and were in his face all game long. Brent Grimes had two picks, Rashad Jones had the other and Olivier Vernon forced Rivers fumble.

On offense the Dolphins were almost unstoppable. The only negative in the first half was a missed 45 yard field goal by Celeb Sturgis and time ran out in the first half. Ryan Tannehill had one of his finest days, going 24 of 34 for 288 yards and three TD passes. He also tacked on 47 yards on the ground.

This was a good win against a good team and a QB some consider one of the elite QB's in the NFL. If the Dolphins can continue to play at this level, the playoff drought could come to an end.
