The Miami Dolphins offense had one of their worst showings of the year when they lost to the San Francisco 49ers this past weekend. Tua Tagovailoa did not look comfortable with both his starting tackles out, but there were still plenty of chances for plays to be made. The Dolphins are going up against a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is terrible against the run and allow a ton of points. This is the perfect game, during primetime, to get the Dolphins offense back on track hopefully.

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