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.
