Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Miami Dolphins-San Diego Chargers Week 10 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Miami Dolphins (4-4) at (-3.5) San Diego Chargers (4-5) Sunday, 4:05 p.m.
Mike: Dolphins. Miami hasn’t turned the ball over and has allowed just two sacks during its three-game winning streak. Sure, those were all home games, but I still think the Dolphins have figured out enough to keep this game close.
Andre: Dolphins. Jay Ajayi had 111 rushing yards against a Jets rush defense that’s actually decent against the run. He makes life easier for Ryan Tannehill, too. He hasn’t thrown a pick since Ajayi began his torrid pace. Miami is also third in the league in defensive hurries (62) so I expect them to make life tough for Philip Rivers.
Ricky: Chargers. The Dolphins rank 30th in the NFL in run defense, allowing 136.1 yards per game on the ground. Good luck stopping Melvin Gordon, who’s been a stud all season.
