GAME DAY! Dolphins at Chargers

Written by Finatic Dave

Dolphins ChargersThe Dolphins will head out west for the next two weeks as they begin a West Coast swing with a game at San Diego on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 4:05 p.m. ET. Miami played in San Diego last year, dropping a 30-14 decision in Week 15.

This will be the fourth consecutive year the Dolphins have played San Diego as Miami posted wins at home in 2013 (20-16) and 2014 (37-0) against the Chargers. The Dolphins are also slated to visit San Diego again in 2017 as part of the NFL's schedule rotation.

The Dolphins have not turned the ball over a single time in their three game winning streak. It's just the fourth time in franchise history that the team has not had a turnover in at least three-straight games and the first since 1997. The other streaks were: Sept. 21, 1997 - Oct. 12, 1997; Oct. 31, 1976 - Nov. 14, 1976; Oct. 17, 1971 - Nov. 7, 1971 (four games). Miami's last turnover came with 2:20 left in the fourth quarter against Tennessee in Week 5, giving the Dolphins a total of 182:20 minutes without a turnover. In that span, the Dolphins have run 197 offensive plays, gained 1,202 yards and the team has scored 85 points.

Jets vs Dolphins GAME DAY!

Written by Finatic Dave

JetsThe Dolphins stay home for their fourth consecutive home game when they host the N.Y. Jets on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 1 p.m. The contest wraps up a home stand that spanned 44 days between road games for Miami. Miami is 1-1 in AFC East play this season with a 28-25 win over Buffalo in Week 7 and a 31-24 loss at New England in Week 2.

The Dolphins have won four of their past five home games, dating back to the 2015 season finale against New England. The last time the Dolphins won four of five home games was during the 2012-13 seasons. The Week 7 vs. Buffalo was also the Dolphins' third home win of the 2016 season. It matches the team's total from 2015.

The Dolphins have dominated the time of possession for two consecutive games, the first two times the team has won that statistic under Head Coach Adam Gase. In Miami's Week 6 matchup against Pittsburgh, the Dolphins had the football for 36:30. Miami continued the trend even further in Week 7 vs. Buffalo, when the offense had the ball for 37:02. It was the third-longest time of possession the Dolphins have had since 2012, and the largest disparity since Oct. 19, 2014 at Chicago. The Dolphins have now posted two of the team's four longest time of possession games since 2012 in their past two games.
