I'm always worried when everyone likes the Dolphins in a game. And we've seen 2 times the last 3 weeks that the Dolphins don't usually perform well in games when they are heavily favored. Let's hope that all changes this week in St. Louis.
This week, I would hope that the Dolphins can finally get a solid running game going - out of their base formation. Ronnie Brown could use a big game this week as well.
Defensively, I expect the Dolphins to get after the quarterback. Joey Porter will likely pick up at least another sack, putting him back on top of the league after DeMarcus Ware took the lead from Porter on Thanksgiving.
I'll take the Dolphins, but I don't expect it to be easy. Dolphins win 27-20.
