The Los Angeles Chargers take down the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night, 23-17.
LA enjoyed a near-perfect first half that allowed them to jump out to a 10-point lead. Justin Herbert missed only five of his 29 throws through the opening two quarters and the offense had outgained Miami by nearly 200 yards. As the Chargers were moving the ball with relative ease, Miami’s offense was a different story entirely. The disjointed rhythm between Tua Tagovailoa and his receivers that we saw last week against San Francisco carried over into this game. Tagovailoa completed just three passes in the first half and the offense had 55 yards of total offense.
Three teams can clinch playoff berths today:@Eagles: Win or tie at Giants, or 49ers loss to Buccaneers plus a Seahawks loss to Panthers@Vikings: Clinch the NFC North with a win or tie at Lions@Chiefs: Clinch AFC West with a win at Broncos and a Chargers loss to Dolphins

FINAL: #Chargers 23, Dolphins 17
A marquee win for Brandon Staley to keep his team firmly in the playoff hunt. LAC improve to 7-6. The defense held Tua Tagovailoa to just 10 completions, four of which came on the final Miami drive. Justin Herbert was lights out in all phases.
