The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football for NFL Week 14. The game is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 11 while airing on NBC. The Dolphins check in as 3.5 point road favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is 52.5 points.

The Dolphins are currently one game behind the Buffalo Bills for first place in the AFC East. As it stands, Miami is holding onto the second of three Wild Card spots in the AFC. That’s despite losing to the San Francisco 49ers last week, which snapped the Dolphins’ five game winning streak. Can Miami get back on track in this AFC showdown with the Chargers on Sunday Night Football?

The Chargers need to start winning games if they want to think about the postseason. As it stands, Los Angeles is three games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West title race. The Chargers’ best path to the playoffs is by grabbing a Wild Card spot, and they are one game behind the Jets for the final No. 7 seed in the AFC while tied with the New England Patriots as well. Because of this, the Chargers’ have a very low margin for error through the rest of the season.
