Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will be facing off against the Los Angeles Chargers tonight on primetime. After losing this past weekend, the Dolphins would love to get a win to build some confidence before traveling to take on the Buffalo Bills for another night game on Saturday. Plus a win always helps with playoff chances. The Chargers are just trying to stay afloat right now as they deal with a ton of injuries. They will be getting some players back, like wide receiver Mike Williams, but could be missing one of their star players on defense in safety, Derwin James. It should be a fun one tonight with the spotlight on the quarterbacks, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
