The Miami Dolphins, currently sitting at 0-3 on the season, will host the Los Angeles Chargers (1-2) on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.
Despite the poor start to the year, Miami believed there was reason to be optimistic going into the game.
For one, wide receiver Albert Wilson was expected to play, after straining his calf during the disastrous 59-10 game against the Baltimore Ravens. The team had hoped his return could give the offense the push it needs.
However, it was announced just before game time that Wilson would again sit out Sunday’s game.
So far, the Dolphins have been outscored 133-16 during the first three games of the season, which makes for the worst start in NFL history.
On another note, Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers is ranked 5th in the league with 944 passing yards, and their linebacker is currently ranked 4th in the NFL, with 34 total tackles.
In addition, the Dolphins’ defense needs to pay attention to Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, who leads the league with 404 receiving yards for the season.
Also missing from the Dolphins sideline on Sunday will be cornerback Jomal Wiltz and left tackle Jesse Davis.
The odds are in Los Angeles’ favor by 15.5, and the Over-Under is 44.5.
Still, anything can happen!
Kick off is at 1 p.m.
