The Los Angeles Chargers have lost all of their games this season by one possession, and it's been the same song and dance with this team, a club that can't finish games or sustain their level of play for 60 minutes. The Dolphins have won four straight with one of the best defenses in the league and a young star quarterback in Tagovailoa who is coming off a brilliant performance in his second career start. The Dolphins are the more complete team here, are riding a wave of momentum and are catching a west coast team on east coast time. You can't confidently back the Chargers with how consistently they blow leads.
Give me the Dolphins and the small chalk.
