It's almost here!!!
Kick-off is now inching ever so close. So now is the time to make some predictions. And to start, let's take a quick look at some picks made by random media members:
|Bill Simmons - Dolphins||Greg Cote - Dolphins|
|Scouts, Inc. - Dolphins||Armando Salguero - Jets|
|Merrill Hodge - Jets||The Harmon Forecast - Dolphins|
|Ron Jaworksi - Jets||Pete Prisco - Dolphins|
|Mark Schlareth - Jets||Clark Judge - Dolphins|
|Chris Mortensen - Dolphins||Adam Schein - Dolphins|
|Mike Golic - Jets
||Jay Glazer - Jets|
|Peter King - Jets||Alex Marvez - Jets|
Clearly, this game isn't as cut and dry as some seem to think it will be. So now, I guess it's time for me to make my pick.
As much as it pains me, I do think the Jets will pull this game out. But it's going to be a close game, I feel, and it will be determined in the 4th quarter. Generally, that would be a good thing for the Dolphins because of the heat taking its toll on the opposition. But I can see the Jets making a few more plays in a tight game than the Dolphins make, whether they are long scoring plays or conversions on 3rd down. Even though the "homer" in me want to pick the Dolphins, with a gun to my head, I'd have to say the Jets find a way to just squeeze out the win.
But more importantly, what do you all say? Now's the time to make your picks. Tell us who wins and why - and even tell us your "player of the game" prediction.
