NFL Week 4: 5 Reasons Why the Miami Dolphins Will Beat the San Diego Chargers

"Seriously Tom, how could you expect the Dolphins to go to San Diego and beat the Chargers?"

Everyone will ask me that as I say it. It's not like I've been Mr. Positive. On Monday I suggested trading Brandon Marshall mainly because the team's not going anywhere this season and needed to pick up some assets. On Tuesday I stated that Miami's problems weren't just Sparano, but also Ireland and the rest of the mess Bill Parcells left down here.

But yet I have a strange feeling that come Sunday, the Dolphins will take the field at Qualcom Stadium, formerly known as Jack Murphy Stadium, forever to be known as my personal house of horrors (my Cubs choking there in 1984 when I was but a year old, the Dolphins choking there with thanks to a defense that allowed 16 unanswered points in the second half of the 94 Divisional round followed by a bad snap and Stoyonovich missing a field goal) and somehow move to 1-3 on this young 2011 season. 

Now if only I could find some statistical reasons why and not just base this on a feeling. 

Yeah, I'm going to have to make this a slideshow, let's get it started. 

Right now San Diego is favored by seven over the Dolphins this Sunday (4:15pm EST, CBS). So what chance does Miami have?

Better than you would think.
