Two four win teams will be doing battle in California in the tenth week of the NFL season. The Miami Dolphins will leave South Beach and head West where they will take on the San Diego Chargers. The Dolphins won their third straight game a week ago, as they defeated the New York Jets. The Chargers are coming off a victory of their own, as they defeated the Tennessee Titans in week nine.
The Dolphins have been playing well as they have three straight wins. But those wins were not exactly convincing, as they featured margins of victories less than five in the last two. All of those games have come at home as well, and the Dolphins have yet to pull out a win while on the road yet. The team started the season playing highly inconsistent, and I am still not convinced they have totally righted the ship just yet. This week will be a very telling sign for the club, as they head across the country and search for their first road win.
As for the Chargers, they typically benefit from playing at home. They have played four home games up until this point in 2016, and have won three of those games, with their only loss coming by a single point in what was a heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints. The team has one of the more high powered offenses in the league, with Philip Rivers regularly putting his team above the 30 point mark. Running back Melvin Gordon has been on an absolute roll as well. So look for the team to do just that this week as they take down the road Dolphins.
