The LA Chargers are back in Miami to face the Dolphins in Week 7 of the 2020 NFL season.

The LA Chargers traveled to Miami, Florida, last season to take on the Dolphins and emerged victorious in Miami for the first time since the 1982 NFL Playoffs. The Chargers had an eight-game losing streak against the Dolphins when they had to travel to Florida.

The Chargers are going to get a chance to flip that eight-game losing streak in Miami to an actual winning streak in Week 7 of the 2020 season as the Chargers are traveling to Miami yet again as part of their AFC East slate of games. This also happened in 2013 and 2014, with the Chargers losing 37-0 in the second year they traveled to Miami.

Let’s hope that does not happen again.

This will be an intriguing matchup as well as the Chargers and Dolphins have been intertwined a lot this season as the Dolphins had the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Whatever Miami did in the draft had a direct impact on the Chargers, which led to the team getting Justin Herbert.

Just as we have with the other opponents leading up to Week 7, here is our breakdown of the Dolphins’ key additions and subtractions this offseason as well as what it will take for the Chargers to beat Miami.
