SAN DIEGO -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was on the sideline telling his offensive teammates to get ready to go back in if the San Diego Chargers scored in the final minute.Turns out it was the Dolphins who would score, on Kiko Alonsos electrifying 60-yard interception return with 1:01 left that gave them a 31-24 victory Sunday, their fourth straight.Two weeks in a row, to have a defensive and a special teams touchdown to take the lead is huge, Tannehill said.Last week, Kenyan Drake returned a kickoff 96 yards with 5:15 left for a 27-23 victory over the New York Jets.Alonso deked Philip Rivers into thinking he was going to cover a slot receiver, then broke off, jumped in front of Tyrell Williams for the interception and outraced everyone to the end zone.Maybe he was expecting me to go up the seam, Alonso said.He didnt. Once he had the ball, all Alonso needed to do was outrun Williams for the score.I mean, thats my first touchdown on defense ever, like high school, college, he said. I felt good.The Dolphins (5-4) intercepted Rivers four times in a 13-minute span in the fourth quarter.San Diego, which had a 10-point lead in the second quarter, fell to 4-6.Here are some things to know about the Dolphins win:TEAM CULTUREFirst-year coach Adam Gase has instilled a different mindset coming off a 6-10 season.I think its just a belief in each other, Tannehill said. Theres no panic if things dont go well, especially in the last month. Weve seen guys face adversity and we just keep fighting. Theres been a few games where weve been down 10-plus points, but on the sideline you cant tell that were down.WEST COAST WEEKSince the Dolphins are playing at the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday, theyre staying this week in Carlsbad in northern San Diego County. That gave receiver Kenny Stills a chance to show some teammates where he went to high school and to make a special visit. I got to see my dog for the first time in like a year and a half, said Stills, who stayed in Miami last offseason to work out.Stills, who went to La Costa Canyon High, caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from Tannehill in the second quarter.SEE-SAW RIVERSRivers tied his career high with the four picks.Obviously it cant happen down in there, Rivers said. There were two of them when we were fixing to score, and then obviously the last one there with a chance to win the game with a field goal. The guy made a great play.He also threw three touchdown passes to move past John Elway for eighth place on the career list with 301.Rivers 51-yard touchdown pass to Williams with 4:04 left gave the Chargers a 24-21 lead.Rivers threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Gates in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead. It was the 82nd time those two connected, extending their NFL record for a quarterback-tight end duo. Gates needs two TD catches to tie Tony Gonzalezs NFL record for touchdown grabs by a tight end (111).DOLPHINSDamien Williams scored on a 2-yard run and on an 18-yard pass from Tannehill. Jay Ajayi ran for 79 yards, ending his streak of three straight 100-yard games, but he had big runs to set up two touchdowns by Williams.MOMENTUM SWINGThe Chargers blew a great opportunity to jump back into the lead after Jakeem Grant muffed a punt and Darrell Stuckey recovered it at the Miami 5. The Chargers had five chances from the 5 or closer -- thanks a holding call against Byron Maxwell -- and ended up with Rivers being intercepted by Lippett in the end zone after forcing a pass into double coverage.After Miami went three-and-out, Rivers gave it right back when he was intercepted by Byron Maxwell with 6:49 to go. The Dolphins failed to capitalize.Losing this way was like a shot under the chin, Stuckey said. Its a tough one. Weve got to find a way to take advantage of opportunities we get. Its the same old, same old story every time, for us, not taking advantage of opportunities.---For more NFL coverage: and White Sox Jerseys Outlet . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record.

Big Ten football is coming to Friday nights in 2017 and beyond.The conferences new TV contract, which begins next season, will include a package of six Friday night games. The news was first reported by the Chicago Tribune?and later announced by the Big Ten.The Friday night games will be limited to September and October and wont include every team. Schools with huge stadiums, such as?Penn State and Ohio State, wont be asked to host them. And Michigan has declined to participate in Friday night games at home or on the road, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany told the Tribune.The Big Ten plans to announce the 2017 Friday night schedule within the next four to seven days.Several assistant coaches in the Big Ten told ESPN that they thought Friday night games would negatively affect recruiting. Friday nights are traditionally high school football nights.Friday night games would put the Big Ten in a recruiting disadvantage, said one Big Ten assistant coach. No other conference has the game-day atmospheres of this league. Combined with two teams, or whoever is playing, would not have the opportunity of going to recruit on Friday nights, as well [as] to watch prospects play.As another assistant said, It kills us with recruiting. One of the best things about our place is the game-day environment. Those kids wont be able to experience that, because they will all have their games.And another assistant added, There is [no advantage]. Most, if not all, high school kids play on Friday nights, which means you would lose one game for recruiting.Both the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association and the Michigan High School Athletic Association expressed disappointment about the decision.?The Friday night games will continue through at least 2022, the Big Ten said.We had hoped that the Big Ten Conference would stay above this, MHSAA executive director John E. Jack Roberts said. We think this cheapens the Big Ten brand. Fans wont like this. Recruits wont like this. And high school football coaches wont like this.?Penn State released a statement on Wednesday making it clear that if Delany changes his mind about not asking the school to host a Friday night game, it would decline the request.?Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told ESPN that the school would be able to host a Friday night game only during its autumn break, which typically occurs the second week of October.We dont have classes on campus that Thursday or Friday, so operationally, it works because were not dealing with parking issues or classes or any of those conflicts that aa game would get in the way of.dddddddddddd.Ohio State would be open to playing Friday night road games in September.Michigan State said Wednesday it would agree to host a Friday night game -- but only on Labor Day weekend. The Spartans previously have hosted Friday night games on that holiday weekend; but according to the MHSAA, that didnt conflict with the high school schedule in Michigan, because most of the states prep games are played that week on Thursday.?Wisconsin also said?it is open to hosting games at Camp Randall on the Friday night of Labor Day weekend in selected years, but it has not committed to hosting them at any other time.Badgers athletic director Barry Alvarez said he had great respect for the tradition and importance of Friday night high school football games in the state of Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest. But he also said it was the right time to explore additional opportunities for exposure on Friday nights on a limited basis.Indiana AD Fred Glass told the Indianapolis Star that the Hoosiers have agreed to play a conference opponent on Friday night once every three years.Glass told the Star that he and Purdue counterpart Mike Bobinski spoke with the head of the states high school athletic association before agreeing to play occasional Friday night games.

Manuel said his chief concern was more for fans that would have to make long trips to the games earlier in the week.With our large fanbase, Michigan fans and alumni travel significant distances to attend games, making Saturdays our preferred day for all football games, he said.The Friday night slate will include three nonconference games and three conference contests. Until now, the league has resisted playing on weeknights, with the exception of the opening week of the season. The Big Ten has no plans to play on Thursday nights, senior associate commissioner Mark Rudner told the Big Ten Network.ESPNs?Tom VanHaaren, Adam Rittenberg, Dan Murphy and Jesse Temple contributed to this report.
