Dolphins defeated by the Chargers, 23-17

By Nitin Singh

On Sunday Night Football at SoFi Stadium, the Miami Dolphins suffered their second straight defeat, falling to the Los Angeles Chargers, 23-17.

With 1:10 left, kicker Jason Sanders made a game-tying 55-yard field goal, but Los Angeles (7-6) recovered the onside kick on the ensuing play to secure the victory.

The Dolphins (8-5) recorded four sacks and gave up just six points in the second half as a result of several crucial stops on defence throughout the game.

Los Angeles quarterback Justin Herbert had a great night despite Miami's ability to limit the damage.

The Chargers outgained the Dolphins 432-219, with Herbert passing for 367 yards and one score.

Los Angeles had the ball in their possession for more than 19 minutes longer than the Dolphins.

The Chargers defence applied relentless pressure, making it difficult for Miami's offence to overcome it.

Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback, completed 10 of his 28 throws for 145 yards and one touchdown, a deep toss of 60 yards to Tyreek Hill, the receiver.

Miami's defence made several key plays to step up and stop Los Angeles from taking the lead after a poor offensive start.
