Well it's again time to make our predictions on this week's game. Above are each team's offensive and defensive rankings. And below are a random sampling of "expert" picks:
|Chris Mortensen - Broncos||Peter King - Broncos|
|Tom Jackson - Dolphins||Jay Novacek - Broncos|
|Mark Schlereth - Dolphins||Pete Prisco - Broncos|
|Ron Jaworski - Broncos||Clark Judge - Broncos|
|Adam Schein - Broncos||Harmon Forecast - Broncos|
Just an interesting note about the above. Mortensen and Jackson are tied with the best pick record on ESPN. Mort, though, has correctly picked all but one of the Dolphins games this year. Let's make it two!
It's also interesting that two former Broncos, including the homer that is Mark Schlereth, both picked the Dolphins.
As for me, I started out 3-1 and have been wrong on the last 3, bringing my mark to that of the Dolphins (3-4). So what about this week?
For some reason, I feel good about this week. I'm confident that the Dolphins will get Ronnie Brown going. I see 100+ yards from Brown this week. The question will be if the Dolphins can slow down Denver's offense. Joey Porter has to get pressure on Jay Cutler - and I think he will, picking up at least another sack.
In the end, I have a feeling this game will come down to turnovers. Luckily, the Dolphins don't commit too many. If they can keep that trend up, I think the Dolphins can upset Denver.
I'll take the Dolphins, 27-24.
