Dolphins vs Ravens: Prediction Time!

It's time for our first (and hopefully not only) post-season edition of "Prediction Time."  Below are a random sampling of "expert" picks:

Chris Mortensen - Ravens Jay Novacek - Ravens
Tom Jackson - Ravens Pete Prisco - Ravens
Mike Ditka - Dolphins Harmon Forecast - Ravens
Ron Jaworski - Ravens Michael Silver - Ravens
Peter King - Ravens Jason Cole - Ravens

It should come as no surprise that the Dolphins are not being picked by many people.  But it's been that way all season - people doubting the Fins - so it's no big deal.

Here's what I know.  The Dolphins are a far better team than they were back in week 7.  So are the Ravens.

While many think the key is for the Dolphins to run the ball, I think it'll be the other way around.  The must stop the run - but must be able to pass the ball effectively on offense.  That's how the Dolphins will win this game.

I think the Dolphins will play smart, mistake-free football.  Chad Pennington will throw for 250 yards or so.  And this Dolphin defense will make a key play or two that will really change the game.

In the end, the Dolphins will win 17-13.  That's my pick.

But what's your pick?  Of course, you'll all be picking the Fins.  So tell us how.  Which Dolphin will be the difference maker? 

We want to hear your thoughts...
