The Chargers will play the AFC East and NFC North this year while having nine home games and eight road games. The schedule includes four AFC teams, including Miami, who made the playoffs last year.
The two teams played one another in 2022, with the Bolts earning a 23-17 win in Week 14 on Sunday Night Football in a game that had massive implications in the AFC playoff race. The Chargers were led by their defense in that game as they held an explosive Dolphins offense to just 219 net yards.
Both teams would end up as Wild-Card participants in 2022. And with the AFC crowded with talent again this season, Shook believes this will be another good game between two possible playoff contenders.
This matchup didn’t produce a ton of points in Inglewood last year, but we did get to see a wacky Tyreek Hill touchdown and a one-score finish. We should be in for another good one this time around. Both teams are looking to push past the Wild Card Round, and both figure to play a notable role in how the loaded AFC shakes out.
