San Diego Chargers Defeat Miami Dolphins 23-13

Whew, so that was a bit of a whirlwind.  Because of a prior engagement, I was only able to see the first quarter and the fourth quarter (plus the end of the third) live.  I'll completely re-watch the game before posting the Bolts & Dolts tomorrow.

Based on what I saw, I was right.  The defense did just enough and the offense could not be matched by Miami.  The offensive line looked terrible, but Philip Rivers took what shots he could and made huge throws downfield when he could.

I heard the Steelers again lost to an inferior opponent in the Bengals.  It seems they're really struggling without Troy Polamalu.  If he's out against the Chargers next week, Norv's crew will have a chance at eventually getting to 6-1.  That'll put the team in a good spot when players like LaDainian Tomlinson and Nick Hardwick are getting healthy again.

So, BFTB faithful, what did you think of the game?  Who belongs on Bolts & Dolts tomorrow?
