The Los Angeles Chargers sit 1-2 as they head to Miami to take on the Dolphins. Here are the bold predictions for this game between the two AFC rivals.
The Chargers have had a slow start to the season yet again, but heading to Miami may be what the team needs to get right. The Dolphins have had a historically bad start to the season, and they are taking their tanking to a new level after trading some of their best players for draft picks.
Let’s review the predictions from last week before getting into the predictions for this week:
- Jerry Tillery gets his first two sacks: Wrong
- Ty Long is perfect for the game: Right
- Travis Benjamin scores a touchdown: Wrong
Tillery had a relatively quiet game, only getting two pressures and failing to appear on the stat sheet. The Chargers struggled to put pressure constantly on Deshaun Watson, and Tillery wasn’t the exemption.
Long bounced back from a bad game against the Detroit Lions where he missed two field goals. Against the Texans, Long was perfect on four kicks, a pair of extra points and a pair of field goals, with a long of 43 yards.
Benjamin had another quiet game. He only made two catches for five yards but had a few key drops that could have changed the outcome of the game. He has had plenty of playing time to prove his talent, but ultimately has little to show for it. Benjamin is likely to miss the game against the Dolphins, so this is the perfect opportunity for Dontrelle Inman or Andre Patton to supplant him on the depth chart.
