NFL: Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2023 NFL regular season is finally here. The Miami Dolphins kickoff their 17-game, 18-week schedule with a Week 1 visit to the Los Angeles Chargers. Today’s game is a rematch of a Week 14 meeting between the two clubs, when the Chargers beat the Dolphins 23-17, also in Los Angeles. Can the Dolphins avenge that loss and get the 2023 season started off with a win?

The game will feature the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, against the sixth pick from that year, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. Heading into the selection process, there was plenty of debate over which of the two quarterbacks was the correct pick for the Dolphins. Now, the Chargers and Dolphins will be linked throughout the careers of the two quarterbacks, with plenty of debate over which pick was the right one in hindsight.

Tagovailoa has played in 36 games in his three seasons in the league, starting 34 of them. He has thrown for 8,015 yards on a 65.7 percent completion rate with 52 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He has a career 95.0 passer rating. In 2022, he led the league in yards per attempt (8.9) and passer rating (105.5).

Herbert has appeared in 49 games, all starts, since being selected one pick after Tagovailoa. He has thrown for 14,089 on a 66.9 percent completion rate with 94 touchdowns and 35 interceptions. He has a career 96.2 passer rating. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2021.

Both the Dolphins and Chargers are expected to have high-powered offenses and compete in the AFC this year. Which team will be able to jump out with an early advantage on the season? Today’s game could have season-long implications when it comes to tiebreaks in the playoff hunt.
