Jarvis Landry questionable for Dolphins regular season opener Sunday

Jay Cutler will make his highly-anticipated Dolphins debut on Sunday when Miami travels to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers. Of course, you cannot forget about running back Jay Ajayi who rushed for 1,272-yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Miami holds a 15-13 all-time series advantage over Los Angeles.

Series: Dolphins lead series 15-13 in the regular season, and that includes a 31-24 victory on the road a year ago. Hull is an outstanding special teamer, but Miami had hoped Raekwon McMillan (since injured) would handle the middle of Miami's defense and perhaps still hope Rey Maualuga (not dressing Sunday) will still eventually do it. Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke notes that Hull has very sound technique and instincts.

Miamie head coach Adam Gase left South Florida last week when it became clear the hurricane was coming.

DYNAMIC DUO: The marquee matchup pits the Dolphins' rebuilt offensive line against Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa, the Chargers' intimidating pair of pass rushers.

March-Lillard played in five games for the Chiefs last season and started all of them, producing 22 tackles and two passes defended. That Miami has yet to play a game means players will be fresher - but perhaps a bit rusty.

The safety spot will show progression from a year ago as well.

As Miami prepares to face Los Angeles, it won't have to deal with a huge and/or hostile crowd in Carson come Sunday. While Timmons appeared to be excited for the season and to join his new team, as it appeared on his social media, someone must have hit a nerve. We'll focus on the kicker and punter and note that if this game is close, as expected, they could play a pivotal role. He was sacked just once, but threw a costly interception on the opening drive of the second half that led to a Broncos touchdown and gave them a 21-7 lead. The Dolphins made big additions - SLB Lawrence Timmons, DE William Hayes, DTs Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor - to stop the run. Verrett returned to practice roughly a month ago after starting training camp on the PUP list.

When asked after practice Thursday what kind of problems the former Bears' QB presented the Chargers' defense, Ingram was concise in his answer.

Miami's offensive line didn't look particularly good during the preseason as Ja'Wuan James and Laremy Tunsil both struggled at times.
