The Los Angeles Chargers will play their first regular-season game at StubHub Center Sunday after losing both preseason games in the 27,000-seat stadium with crowds almost 6,000 short of capacity. Ajayi is more risky than Jamal Charles and CJ Anderson, especially because he has had an extra week off.
The NFL team was forced to leave their facility due to Hurricane Irma. Miami will not only be fresh, but it will offer a balanced offensive attack led by new quarterback Jay Cutler and bruising running back Jay Ajayi. Needless to say, they have had time to prepare and watch film. The Chargers must contain him to have a chance of winning their season opener. Chargers QB Philip Rivers needs 209 yards passing to pass Vinny Testaverde (46,233) for 11th place in National Football League history. The only reason the Chargers made that 4th quarter nearly comeback was Denver committed a pair of turnovers. The only way they will be able to win this game is if they get into a shootout, which is hard to see Miami's defense allowing.
They returned, some after long vehicle trips that began the previous day, late Tuesday for a walk-through practice.

Better understanding of hurricane-climate relation is needed, as ultimately that knowledge can help serve society. Early on, the Trump administration systematically removed information about climate change from federal websites.
Despite the 24-21 setback in the Mile High City this past Monday evening, the Chargers do have an opportunity the next two weekends to take advantage of some "home" cooking. All night Rivers was throwing passes too early and he did not look comfortable in the pocket. Anthony Lynn reiterated this week that he wants to run the ball, so don't be surprised if Melvin Gordon tops 20 carries for just the seventh time in his career. That said, Miami is coming into this Week 2 matchup with fresh legs and confidence after beating the Bolts three out of the last four years.
"It's just back to business as normal", Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh said in a conference call with reporters. Williams was a limited participant, getting some work in with the receivers and quarterbacks during individual work. "I'm just trying to learn the offense right now, get in shape, be ready to play when my time comes".
The Gators will stick with Feliepe Franks at quarterback, who got his first start in the opener against MI before being benched in place of Malik Zaire. Look for the offensive scheme to swing his way as the team tries to get him involved.
