Ricky Williams called himself a 'beast' with good reason, running for 143 yards and two TDs.
Not necessarily. This result was a surprise to me -- the surprise of the week, really. Knowing the problems Miami QB Ray Lucas has had, I expected the Chargers to be able to focus on Ricky Williams and slow him down. Instead, he had a breakout game, which helped keep Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson off the field.
Question on the Dolphins: How important was it psychologically for Miami to pick up these wins the past two weeks?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Chargers leading receiver Curtis Conway aggravated a shoulder injury, saw limited action and didn't catch a pass. ... Chargers cornerback Ryan McNeil hurt his right forearm and was taken to the locker room on a cart in the first quarter. Tackle Ed Ellis also left on a cart with a high ankle sprain to his right ankle. The Chargers' last win at Miami came in the playoffs, a 41-38 overtime victory on Jan. 2, 1982 that is considered one of the NFL's greatest games.
