It's time to make our humble predictions for this game on Sunday.  But, as tradition here, let's first take a look at who some "experts" are picking:

Chris Mortensen - Dolphins Pete Prisco - Bills
Mike Golic - Bills Harmon Forecast - Bills
Mike Ditka - Bills Peter King - Bills
Tom Jackson - Bills Jay Novacek - Bills
Adam Schein - Bills Sean Leahy - Bills

What happened to all those people on the Dolphins bandwagon?  I guess they all fell off when we hit this little pothole.

As for me?  I fell to 3-3 on my picks after the Dolphins decided to take last week off against the Ravens.  This week? 

I'm not sure I can convince myself that the Dolphins will pull this game out.  I have no reason to think that this Miami secondary will play any better this week than they did the past 2 weeks.  The best I can do is hope that the pass rush can be a big factor and consistently pressure Trent Edwards.

Offensively, the running game has got to get going.  And I think it will - with runs to the outside (away from Marcus Stroud).  But I don't think the offense will do enough.

In the end, it'll be a close game - with the Bills pulling out the win.  Bills 23 - Dolphins 17
