Serious Business: 9/29 San Diego Chargers Links

Bob Sanders' body betrays him again - Bill Williamson
"All we wished for Bob was good health and hoped to turn him loose to do his thing, which was being one great, physical, highly-competitive player," Smith said. "It didn’t work out for him or us, and we wish him the very best. He was with us a very short time, but made a positive impact with our team in many ways, and I’ll always appreciate that."

Can the Dolphins score in the red zone? That’s another big question as Miami currently ranks 29th in the NFL in red zone scoring efficiency. Keep in mind that the Dolphins are 5-1 against the spread in their last five games against the Chargers.

"Although they're not lost, you have to treat them as if they were," Rivers said. "I lost one in the pocket we were lucky to get, and the other with Patrick. We have to make sure the ball's in our hands at the end of the play."

Confident in Rivers - Christopher Smith
Philip Rivers’ six interceptions are unprecedented for him during a three-game span, but Head Coach Norv Turner expressed confidence in the Pro Bowl quarterback who leads the NFL in fourth-quarter passer rating this season
