MIAMI

[WR] Tab Perry IR - Achilles - 07/27/08

Prediction:

The Dolphins are coming off a bye and before that, Ronnie Brown totaled five touchdowns (4 rushing, 1 passing) as Miami shocked the New England Patriots. The Dolphins will probably try to use Brown in the single back formation again like they did against New England, but San Diego will be more prepared for the offensive strategy than the Pats were. And while Philip Rivers has been turning the ball over more the past couple weeks, he should have no problem picking apart the Dolphins’ secondary. LaDainian Tomlinson also looks healthy again after battling with a toe injury the first couple weeks of the season. Miami might keep things close at first, but we expect San Diego to pull away in the second half. We predict the Chargers over the Dolphins 27-16.
