Quick Take: Chargers (2-2) at Dolphins (1-2)

Last meeting
In 2005, current Chargers wideout Chris Chambers caught eight passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns to help Miami knock off the Chargers, 23-21, in San Diego.

The Dolphins have beaten the Chargers six straight times, and lead the overall series, 11-10.

Last week
Behind 106 yards and two touchdowns from LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego defeated division rival Oakland, 28-18, at McAfee Coliseum. ... The Dolphins had a bye.

Keep your eye on ...
Miami's running backs: Coming off a career-high five-touchdown performance (four rushing, one passing) against the Patriots, Ronnie Brown appears to have returned to the form he displayed before going on injured reserve last season. Though Brown is not likely to repeat his Week 3 totals, the Chargers will surely take notice that he, along with running mate Ricky Williams (4.1 yards per carry), are a force to be reckoned with.

Porter coming off the edge: Before Week 3, Joey Porter had not recorded three sacks in a game since his free-roaming days in Pittsburgh. In coach Tony Sparano's 3-4 scheme, Porter is better able to play the role of hybrid OLB/DE, keeping defenses guessing as to where he will rush from on blitz packages.

L.T.'s return to the end zone: Tomlinson's nagging toe injury has led to more carries for backup RB Darren Sproles, but L.T. has still found a way into the end zone, as evidenced by his four touchdowns over his last two games.
