Miami Dolphins vs Los Angeles Chargers Live Stream: Watch NFL Football 2017 Online

The Miami Dolphins and the Los Angeles Chargers will go head to head on Sunday in one of five late afternoon starts in the NFL 2017 regular season for Week 2. The game has a scheduled start time of 4.05 p.m. ET and takes place at the StubHub Center in Carson. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).

The Miami Dolphins were unable to play their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, and the game was postponed till later in the season. That means today's game is effectively the season opener for the Dolphins and they will want to get things off to a winning start against a strong Chargers team.

The Los Angeles Chargers proved that will be no pushovers this season, as they made the Broncos give everything to overcome them last week.

Opening up the season with a road game at Sports Authority Field is always something teams would prefer to avoid, however, that was the challenge awaiting the LA Chargers last week.

For three quarters it looked like the Broncos would ease through to victory, however, a stunning comeback in the fourth saw the Chargers pile on 14 unanswered points to push the game all the way. But despite all their efforts, the Chargers were ultimately to fall short, and the game ended 24-21.

Leaving Denver with a narrow loss might seem encouraging for the Chargers, but in the end, a loss is a loss, and if they lose again here today against the Dolphins they will drop to 0-2 and their season will already seem like a long way back even to get to level par.

However, if the Chargers can perform at the intensity they showed in the final quarter against the Broncos, then they should be able to win this home game today.

Earlier this week, the Houston Texans went on the road to Ohio to play the Cincinnati Bengals on NFL Thursday Night Football. The Texans prevailed 13-9 in a low-scoring and close encounter.

Both teams had lost in Week 1 and so both were intent on avoiding falling to 0-2, however, it is the Bengals that find themselves the first team of the new season to drop to 0-2. The Texans meanwhile move to 1-1 and will look to push on from here.

In Week 1 the Bengals were trashed 20-0 by the Baltimore Ravens, and Andy Dalton was only able to average 5.5 yards per pass through the game, accumulating an horrendous 28.4 passer rating.

The Texans meanwhile suffered an embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, in what was a disastrous opening showing for the team. They gave up 10 sacks as well as 29 points, and were forced to bench Tom Savage for rookie Deshaun Watson midway through the game.

Watson struggled through his first ever start in the NFL, however, he did produce the only moment that really mattered in the game as he ran for a 49 yard touchdown after breaking free from the Bengals defense.

That proved to be the difference between the teams and was enough to get the Texans season kick-started with their first victory.

But on the evidence of Thursday's match up, both the Bengals and Texans look like they can have reasonable defenses, however, both will have to do something drastic about their offenses, as both looked far from NFL-level performances. If things do not improve quickly for both teams in that area then it could end up being a long season.
