This is the 5th straight season Miami has played the Chargers. They are 3-1 and have forced Philip Rivers to throw 10 interceptions in those games. The defense has to get pressure on him and force those errant throws he seems to consistently sling against Miami. The Chargers ranked dead last in committing turnovers last year.

Last year on offense the Chargers ranked 26th in yards rushing with a 3.8 YPC. Even more importantly, they ranked 22nd in rushing TDs by only scoring 10 times on the ground. So bottle up Melvin Gordon and pin your ears back for Rivers.

Conversely, the Chargers defense was pretty good at slowing down by ranking 10th in yards allowed. However, they ranked 30th in rushing TDs allowed by giving up 20 ground TDs to opponents. So again, be aggressive driving the ball down field and letting Ajayi punch it in.

If what we witnessed in the 3rd preseason game is any indicator of a game 1 offensive blue print then Miami can be in good shape. Cutler can chuck it better than any Dolphins QB since Dan Marino and he has a big target in Devante Parker. Drive the ball downfield and let Ajayi clean up the mess.

I'll post more about the matchup tomorrow in the blog. The Chargers are playing tonight so obviously a lot can change. They are currently -4 in the Vegas odds. Let's hope Gase is ready to unleash an aggressive Cutler so that Rivers will in turn fall back into turnover mode that Miami has force him into.
