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.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs OAK (5 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)

Nearly half of Green's receiving yardage came on his first catch of the game, a crossing route that gained 27 yards. Most of his damage was done over the middle rather than on deep routes, but his ability to pick up yardage after the catch means he can turn even the smallest pickup into a big gain.

2014 Week 8 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Green has all but disappeared from the offense in recent weeks with the emergence of so many receiving options and the re-emergence of veteran TE Antonio Gates. Green's first and only catch came on a crossing route with about five minutes left in the game. It was a key first down that kept the drive moving following Denver's missed field goal, but it was really the only time Green's name was even mentioned all night.


Latest News

Chargers | Ladarius Green not involved (Mon Oct 20, 04:29 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green hasn't seen his role expand this year after head coach Mike McCoy expected him to earn a much bigger role in the offense in the offseason. Green wasn't thrown to at all in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs after being featured extensively against them last year.

Our View: The Chargers barely had the ball against the Chiefs. We'll see if they can get Green more involved on Thursday night against the Broncos.
