Week 9: at Miami Dolphins

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Though Philip Rivers has slung 47/72 for 457 yards, five TDs and three interceptions over the past two games, the Chargers have dropped two straight. He's relied on Antonio Gates the most in scoring situations of late (with 13 targets for 8/115/3 receiving), while throwing double-digit targets to three other players over that two game span: Keenan Allen (23 for 15/131/1); Branden Oliver (10 for 9/38/0 receiving); and Malcom Floyd (14 for 7/108/0). The Chargers' pass offense is productive of late despite the slide in the W-L column. The Dolphins' pass D is ranked third in the NFL averaging just 211.6 net yards allowed per game, with 12 pass TDs given up, vs. six interceptions generated, and 21 sacks thrown down (tied for 17th- and ninth-ranked, respectively). Blake Bortles was sacked four times for -20 yards last week (18/34 for 201 net passing yards, one TD and two interceptions thrown). Jay Cutler was dumped three times for -18 yards two weeks ago (21/34 for 172 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown). This is one of the best pass defenses in the NFL folks, and they have the home crowd behind them this weekend. Advantage, Miami.
