Dolphins vs Titans: Prediction Time

New, comments

Last week, there was a pretty even split among the "experts" about the Dolphins/Jaguars game. This week, I get the feeling that it'll be another close split between the Dolphins and Titans. Let's see:

Chris Mortensen - Ten Adam Schefter - Ten Ron Jaworski - Mia
Tom Jackson - Mia Cris Carter - Mia Peter King - Mia
PFT - Ten Jason Cole - Ten Michael Silver - Ten
Pete Prisco - Ten Harmon Forecast - Ten Clark Judge - Ten

A lot of people seem to like the Titans here. And I'll admit - this Titan team is a lot closer to least year's 13-3 team right now than they are to the 0-6 team that started this season.

With that said, I don't know what to make of this game. I don't think Vince Young will be playing at 100% - which certainly helps the Dolphins. But even an 80% Young is athletic enough to give this defense headaches.

I guess what this game comes down to is how well the Dolphins can contain Chris Johnson and how well the offense can move the football. For some reason, I just have this feeling that we're in store for a high-scoring 30-27 kind of game. I think Chad Henne will play well and I expect the Dolphins to score points. If they can just limit CJ's impact, the Dolphins have a good shot at leaving Nashville with a win.

My Week 15 Locks
Saints -6.5 over Cowboys - I really love the Saints in this spot. They're going for 16-0 100% and I think Drew Brees will have another big game.
Cardinals -10.5 over Lions - The Cards bounce back in a big way with a win over the lowly Lions. There's no chance Detroit contains Arizona's offense and I don't think the Cards will turn the ball over a ridiculous amount of times like on Monday night.
Texans -9.5 over Rams - The Rams are just terrible - and now they have a swine flu issue. Houston will roll big in this game.
Chargers -6.5 over Bengals - I'd love to see Cincy win this. But the Charger are really hot right now and emotion can only carry you so far. The Chargers are the better team and they'll win this game and take command of the AFC's #2 seed.

Last Week: 2-2
Season: 23-21-1
