Miami Dolphins vs Cleveland Browns: Prediction Time

The Dolphins will look to win consecutive games for just the second time this season when they welcome in the Browns on Sunday. So let's see what the usual cast of writers and analysts are saying, keeping in mind that ten of the twelve "experts" below did pick against the Dolphins a week ago:

Adam Schefter - Cle Chris Mortensen - Mia Tom Jackson - Cle
Ron Jaworski - Mia Peter King - Mia Mike Florio - Mia
Gregg Rosenthal - Mia Jason Cole - Mia Pete Prisco - Mia
Solomon Wilcots - Mia Michael Lombardi - Mia Brian Baldinger - Mia

I'm not exactly sure what to think of this. On one hand, I'm a little surprised that there are analysts out there who think that the Browns will actually win. On the other hand, I'm never comfortable when the Dolphins are the consensus favorite.

With that said, this is a game the Dolphins should win. On paper, they match up well with the Browns. I don't believe any of Cleveland's corners can cover even a slowed Brandon Marshall - whom I expect to play despite his hamstring injury. None of Cleveland's receivers worry me. And I believe the Dolphins will be able to get pressure on Jake Delhomme, generating some opportunities for turnovers.

Assuming the Dolphins do not fall behind early and can contain Peyton Hillis, this should be a win.

Should be.
