Dolphins vs Chargers: Prediction Time

As usual, it's time for some picks.  First we have some "expert picks" which are followed by my pick and my week 3 locks (though my week 2 locks were anything but locks).  Then, finally, be sure to give us your predictions below.

Chris Mortensen - SD Adam Schefter - SD Ron Jaworski - SD
Tom Jackson - Mia Pete Prisco - SD Harmon Forecast - SD
PFT - Mia Peter King - SD Jason Cole - SD
Steve Wyche - SD Clark Judge - Mia Mark Schlereth - SD

I didn't think the Dolphins would get much love this week coming off of a tough loss, on a short week, heading out to the west coast to play a talented Chargers team.  And you know what - I see where these guys are coming from.

That's why I'm going to take the Chargers to win as well.  I just think that the Dolphins will have a hard time recovering from Monday night's crushing loss.  And I don't see a much better performance from Miami's defense this week against Phillip Rivers, Antonio Gates, and company.

The Dolphins will be able to run the ball, but I think they'll struggle to get key stops defensively and that will lead to a Chargers win, 27-23.

My Week 3 Locks
Texans -3.5 over Jaguars
- Houston's offense finally got going last week while the Jaguars continue to struggle.  This should be a double-digit win for the Texans.
Titans +2.5 over Jets - I just don't see the Titans falling to 0-3 to start the year.  They'll stop NY's run and force Mark Sanchez to beat them...and he won't.
Bears -1.5 over Seahawks - Playing in Seattle is never easy.  But the Seahawks will likely be without their QB and I expect Matt Forte to finally get going on the ground.

Last Week: 1-2
Season: 1-2
