NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins start their 2017 regular season later than any other team in the NFL, waiting until the late time slots in Week 2 to see their first game action of the year. After Hurricane Irma postponed their Week 1 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and forced the Dolphins to spend the entire week in Oxnard, California, practicing at the Dallas Cowboys’ training camp facilities, they will finally get on the field with today’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The game will also mark the Dolphins debut for quarterback Jay Cutler, who was signed in training camp to replace an injured Ryan Tannehill.

This is also a debut game for the Chargers, who lost last week at the Denver Broncos. This week, they will be playing at their new (temporary) home in Los Angeles, the 30,000-seat StubHub Center, a stadium beuilt for the LA Galacxy of Major League Soccer.

The Dolphins are 15-13 all-time against the Chargers, along with a 2-2 record in playoff appearances against them. Miami beat the Chargers last year in San Diego during a Week 10 contest, coming away with a 31-24 victory. Tannehill threw for 240 yards with two touchdowns and a 130.6 passer rating for Miami, while the Chargers’ Philip Rivers threw for 326 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions, ending the game with a 61.4 passer rating. Miami running back Jay Ajayi ran for 79 yards, while Damien Williams scored once on the ground and once through the air. Jarvis Landry led the game with six receptions, on six targets, picking up 53 yards, while DeVante Parker added 103 yards on his five receptions and Kenny Stills had 47 yards and a touchdown on two catches. On the Chargers’ side of the ball, Melvin Gordon picked up 70 yards on the ground and 62 receiving, while Tyrell Williams picked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions from 11 targets, Aontonio Gates added a touchdown with 63 yards receiving, and Hunter Henry picked up a score.

For the defense, Cameron Wake ended the game with 1.5 sacks, while Andre Branch, Mario Williams, and Ndamukong Suh each had a half-sack. Kiko Alonso had a 60-yard pick-six, while Tony Lippett had two interceptions, and Byron Maxwell added one of his own. Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram had the only sack of the game for the home team.
