Time again to make our predictions for Sunday's game.  Above are each team's offensive and defensive rankings.  Below, as always, are some "expert" picks:

Tom Jackson - Miami Jay Novacek - Miami
Chris Carter - Miami Pete Prisco - Miami
Mike Ditka - Miami Harmon Forecast - Miami
Ron Jaworski - Miami Michael Silver - Miami
Peter King - Miami Jason Cole - Miami

It's never good when everyone is picking your team.  It creates a feeling of uneasiness, you know?

But who am I to go against the grain here?  I don't think this game is going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination.  But I just don't think the Dolphins will let themselves lose this game with so much on the line.

I think the Dolphins will finally get the running game back on track.  Ronnie & Ricky should get a solid workload - which will be important in the cold and wind at Arrowhead.

Defensively, I'd by lying if I didn't say that KC's offense worries me.  Tony Gonzalez and Dwayne Bowe will create matchup problems for the Dolphins.  And I do think that this defense's "no TDs allowed" streak will come to an end on Sunday.

But the Dolphins will do enough to leave KC with the win, 20-13.
