Dolphins vs. Chargers preview:

Miami is the hottest team in the NFL. Wait, what? The Dolphins have won three straight games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets, and is now 4-4 on the season after a poor start. The offense is clicking, with at least 27 points scored in Miami's last three games. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been serviceable, while running back Jay Ajayi has been a revelation in the Dolphins last three games.

The Chargers dropped four of their first five games, and blew several fourth quarter leads after dominating the first half. Now, Phillip Rivers and San Diego sit at 4-5 after winning three of its last four games against the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons, and Tennessee Titans. The Chargers offense is very good, and second-year running back Melvin Gordon is lightyears ahead of where he was last year.

The Dolphins and Chargers have played each other 31 times, with the Dolphins holding a 14-13 advantage in the regular season. The teams split four playoff games.

Dolphins vs. Chargers prediction:

Miami has rattled off three straight wins on the legs of Jay Ajayi. The Chargers exist on the arm of Phillip Rivers. Which one will carry their team to victory?

Rivers should be able to exploit a suspect Dolphins secondary and lift the Chargers to a much-needed victory.

Chargers 38, Miami 30
