Dolphins LB Lawrence Timmons inactive after unexpectedly leaving team
Sep 18 2017 by Dustin Murphy
Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers are ready for the week 3 of the 2017 National Football League season when they clash on Sunday at 4:05 PM EST in StubHub Center, Carson, California.
Parkey's third field goal, this one from 35 yards, pulled the Dolphins to within 17-16. The drive stalled after the Dolphins had a first-and-goal from the 6-yard line and they settled for a 28-yard field goal.
For stretches Sunday, Philip Rivers and the L.A. offense clicked against a Miami defense that was down two regulars at linebacker.
Rivers then ran right for no gain to give Koo a better angle.
Linebacker Jatavis Brown consoled Koo, an undrafted rookie who was chosen over incumbent Josh Lambo at the end of the preseason.
Several teammates piled on Gates in the end zone following the record- setting catch. Miami will get its first look at Jay Cutler as the starting quarterback today. But Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram sacked Cutler for a five-yard loss on a third-and-goal play from the five-yard line, preventing Miami from scoring a game-tying touchdown.
According to a Sunday morning report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons is not now with the team at its California hotel. We were getting a lot of information about what was going on, and we had a lot of guys scattered throughout Florida, too. The only reason the Chargers made that 4th quarter nearly comeback was Denver committed a pair of turnovers. Phillip Rivers, meanwhile, completed 14 of 17 passes for 152 yards. Fouts finished 33-of-53 for 433 yards, three touchdowns and one pick.
The 34-year-old Cutler came out of retirement in August, signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Dolphins after Ryan Tannehill went down with a season-ending knee injury. The Dolphins took a fourth quarter lead on a Tony Nathan 12-yard run. The Carson, Calif., stadium has a capacity of 27,000.
Approximately 500 seats are reserved by law for people with disabilities, the majority of which went unsold for Sunday's game. "You wait all year for the first game of the season". Parkey, claimed off waivers from Cleveland on September 3, is now 6-for-6 in his career on field goals of 50 yards or longer.

Los Angeles scored 10 points in the second quarter.
