MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Ryan Tannehill threw for 288 yards and three scores Sunday, and the Miami Dolphins forced four turnovers to rout the San Diego Chargers 37-0.
Tannehill went 24 for 34 and threw touchdown passes to Charles Clay, Rishard Matthews and Jarvis Landry. San Diego's Philip Rivers threw three interceptions, two to Brent Grimes, and was sacked three times.
The Dolphins (5-3) earned their third consecutive victory. The Chargers (5-4) lost their third game in a row and remain winless in South Florida since January 1982.
Every Miami victory this season has been by double digits, and this was the most lopsided yet. San Diego was shut out for the first time since 1999, and the Dolphins earned their first shutout since 2006.
