Game notes

After beating San Diego on Sunday, the Dolphins have their first three-game winning streak since November of 2003 when they beat Baltimore, Washington and Dallas in consecutive weeks. Speaking of streaks, Chris Chambers is on an amazing one, with three straight 100-yard receiving games.

It's the first time a Dolphins wideout has gone over the 100-yard mark three straight games since Irving Fryar did it in 1994.

In addition, Chambers' 121 yards against San Diego helped him set new franchise mark for most receiving yards over a two-game span (359) and a three-game span (460).

-- With the offensive line playing well at San Diego, there were no changes up front during the game. You may recall that Stockar McDougle replaced Damion McIntosh at left tackle for a spell during the Buffalo game.

-- The Dolphins inactives were CB Reggie Howard, LB Nick Rogers, G Joe Berger, G C.J. Brooks, T Anthony Alabi, WR Bryan Gilmore and DT Keith Traylor. Cleo Lemon again served as the third quarterback.

-- C Seth McKinney sustained a knee injury in the third quarter and was replaced by starting right guard Rex Hadnot, who slid over to center. Alonzo Ephraim took Hadnot's place at guard.

Coach Nick Saban said Monday that McKinney would undergo further tests but that the injury might require surgery. In any case, it's doubtful McKinney will be able to play Sunday against the Jets.

-- With the victory over San Diego, the Dolphins improved to a whopping 19-3 in their last 22 games against AFC West teams. That record includes games against Seattle, which moved to the NFC West when the NFL adopted its new divisional format.

-- This is why time of possession sometimes can be overrated: The Dolphins won Sunday despite having the ball on offense for only 19:43, as opposed to 40:17 for San Diego.
