Wrap-up: Chargers 23, Dolphins 13

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

This was an impressive win for the Chargers.

They made the key plays when they had to in beating the Dolphins.

It seems games are going to be tougher for San Diego to win in 2009 than we all expected because of the glut of injuries the team sustained. But the Chargers are proving to be gutsy.

They worked hard to come back against Oakland on Opening Night and they played well against Baltimore.

Now, they slugged out a win to go to 2-1. This was a pivotal game for San Diego. It couldn’t go to Pittsburgh next week with a 1-2 record. Denver looks good at 3-0 and the Chargers needed to keep pace.

San Diego will need to learn to play through its injuries, but it avoided going under .500 Sunday and that could loom big down the road.
