Dolphins Riding Four Game Winning Streak After Win Over Chargers

The Miami Dolphin intercepted San Diego Charger quarterback Philip Rivers four times just in the fourth quarter to earn their fourth straight win, a wild 31-24 victory in San Diego on Sunday. Miami linebacker Kiko Alonso returned the last interception into the end zone for his first career interception of his life to lead the Dolphins to the win.  Alonso said he observed as Rivers motioned to Tyrell Williams to get in position for a pass and he said he jumped the route, picked off the pass, and then outraced San Diego’s offense for 60 yards to the end zone with only a minute left in the game.

Miami was down 24 to 21 with four minutes left until quarterback Ryan Tannehill lead his team into field goal range. Kicker Andrew Franks made a 27 yard attempt to tie it up. Running back Jay Ajayi ran for 79 yards in the win, ending his streak of three straight 100 yard plus games. Miami head coach Adam Gase credits this win to his defense.

The Dolphins are now 5-4 on the season; the team will stay on the west coast to take on the LA Rams next Sunday.  The Chargers fall to 4-6.
