3. The LA Chargers desperately need to add speed in the future after seeing the Miami Dolphins win

This is something that has been surrounding the LA Chargers for quite some time and it is something that the team is not going to fix during the course of the season. That being said, the Miami Dolphins-Baltimore Ravens game should start planting the seeds for the Chargers' front office in what they can add in the offseason.

That game was all about speed on both sides of the football. Lamar Jackson and his weapons are looking to take the top off of defenses while the Dolphins are looking to manage Tua Tagovailoa's skill set and get the ball to playmakers.

Tua had the best game of his young NFL career in this one as he did something that Justin Herbert has never done: throw six touchdown passes. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill absolutely feasted in this game and fueled the comeback for the Dolphins.

Just imagine if Justin Herbert had those kinds of speed weapons in his offense. While Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are great, Joe Lombardi's offense is built on having guys that can get off the line quickly and get separation. The Chargers do not have much of that.

MUST-READ: Should the Chargers bring in Philip Rivers if Justin Herbert can't go?

Tua is ultimately going to be the aspect that holds the Dolphins back, regardless of how well he played on Sunday. The fact that Miami was able to mount that kind of comeback should catch the Chargers' attention, especially considering they play each other later in the season.
