The Miami Dolphins have a very good football team, but recently they cannot escape the off the field scandal involving bullying and hazing on the team. The rest of the team are hoping to fight on and get some wins and perhaps even make the playoffs. The San Diego Chargers are also hoping to make the playoffs but are looking up at the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos in the standings. The Chargers hit the east coast again and are looking to make a run at making the playoffs.

The opening NFL point spread for this game will change leading up to game time as the off the field scandal is affecting the offensive line of the Dolphins. This unit was not good enough to begin with. So with that in mind this line could change leading up to kick off so make sure to look for the latest line when it is released by the top rated online sportsbooks.
The Chargers moved the ball well against the Broncos but could not finish the deal. The Chargers closed the gap late in the second half but couldn't catch up. The Chargers were inside the Denver 23 three times in their first four possessions and had to settle for field goals of 26 and 40 yards by Nick Novak. Novak was wide left on a 37-yard attempt with 1:38 left before halftime. That would not be enough and Peyton Manning pulled away crushing the Bolts in this game. Now the Chargers are in a must win spot against the Dolphins.
