The San Diego Chargers have now dropped three straight games since coming off their bye week, and their most recent loss to the Miami Dolphins may have sealed their fate in the running for a wild-card slot.
The Chargers managed to score just one touchdown in addition to three field goals, while the Dolphins scored 10 points in the second half to nab the win. Philip Rivers threw for 298 yards and a touchdown, outdoing his competition in Ryan Tannehill, who finished with 268 yards and a touchdown.
Tannehill, however, came out the victor, as the offense combined for 435 yards and a 39-yard touchdown by Charles Clay in the third quarter that gave Miami the edge on the scoreboard.
Here are takeaways from the Chargers' 20-16 loss to the Dolphins, who had lost three of their last four heading into the matchup with San Diego.
