Melvin Ingram not in the least bit concerned about facing Jay Cutler

Melvin Ingram not in the least bit concerned about facing Jay Cutler

The last time the Chargers played at home Los Angeles was on December 18, 1960, a 50-43 win over the New York Titans at the Coliseum to advance to the AFL Championship game.

Stay Committed to Running the Football: Let's be honest with ourselves here; even though the Chargers made a great comeback against the Denver Broncos in week one, they still were dominated at the line of scrimmage. Yes, there have been some roster changes since then, but not enough for Los Angeles to finally overcome their woes against the Dolphins.

But the Chargers stuck around San Diego another year and got stuck in the ribs by Miami last season with Ryan Tannehill throwing for two touchdowns and 240 yards.

He was located Sunday, according to The Miami Herald and Fox Sports. After coming out of retirement on August 6 to replace an injured Ryan Tannehill, Cutler played sparingly in two preseason games for the Dolphins.

Lynn's coaching staff doesn't know exactly what to expect from Adam Gase's team, but the Chargers are expecting the Dolphins' layoff to be a positive for Miami.

-Dolphins LT Laremy Tunsil vs. Chargers DE Melvin Ingram. After combining for 18.5 sacks a year ago, the duo teamed up for three more on Monday night against Denver. Despite breaking out a 21-yard run on the Chargers first play of the game, Gordon didn't start to find his rhythm until late.

The Chargers lost eight games by seven points or fewer a year ago, one of them to the Dolphins. Additionally, the Chargers ruled out safety Rayshawn Jenkins, who will miss Sunday's game due to a concussion/shoulder injury. It got to the point where team officials notified the authorities of Timmons' disappearance. On the other hand, their could be an emotional hangover from the heartbreaking the way they lost the game. Philip Rivers failed to get over 200-yards passing and Melvin Gordon only rushed for 54-yards.

During the pre-draft process Verrett had surgery on a torn labrum in his right shoulder and was a limited participant during training camp.

Miami's offensive line didn't look particularly good during the preseason as Ja'Wuan James and Laremy Tunsil both struggled at times.

Melvin Ingram isn't anxious about Jay Cutler. The Dolphins have won three of the last four between these two and they have hit the under in nine of their last 10 meetings.
