It's time to make our Dolphin predictions for week 10. As usual, above are each team's rankings on offense and defense. And below are a sampling of "expert" picks:
|Chris Mortensen - Dolphins||Jay Novacek - Dolphins|
|Tom Jackson - Dolphins||Pete Prisco - Dolphins|
|Ron Jaworski - Dolphins||Clark Judge - Dolphins|
|Mike Ditka - Dolphins||Harmon Forecast - Dolphins|
|Peter King - Dolphins||Adam Schein - Dolphins|
If nothing else, I think the above picks just emphasize what we already know: the Dolphins are supposed to win this game. That in itself makes this a dangerous situation for a team like the Dolphins - one that is still learning how to win.
So now I have to make my pick. Last week, I improved to 4-4 (just like the Fins) with Miami's victory in Denver. So what about this week?
I think this is a dangerous game for the Dolphins. When was the last time they were ever supposed to win a game...and then actually did? But I do think they will do enough to pull off the win. I think that Chad Pennington will go over 280 yards passing for the 5th straight game - mainly because I still feel like opponents will continue to stack the box against Ronnie Brown. And I think this defense will get after Seneca Wallace and force a couple of turnovers.
In the end, I'll say that the Dolphins will improve to 5-4 with a 23-13 win over Seattle.
