Dolphins vs Steelers: Prediction Time

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable New Year's holiday. Let's get to the "expert" picks for Sunday's game:

Chris Mortensen - Mia Adam Schefter - Pit Ron Jaworksi - Mia
Cris Carter - Pit Tom Jackson - Pit Peter King - Pit
PFT - Mia Sporting News - Pit Jason Cole - Pit
Harmon Forecast - Mia Pete Prisco - Pit Clark Judge - Mia

I thought we'd see far fewer picks in favor of the Dolphins. But it seems like, of nothing else, the media at least respects this Dolphins team. That's nice for a change.

The way I see it, this game is going to be a shoot-out. I don't think either team will run the ball effectively well, meaning Chad Henne will have to out-gun Ben Roethlisberger. Will he do it? It sure won't be easy.

In the end, I see a tight, high-scoring game. 31-28 Dolphins.

Week 17 Locks
Jaguars +1.5 over Browns
- With Jacksonville clinging to slim playoff hopes, the Jaguars get the job done behind MJD.
Titans -4.5 over Seahawks - Seattle has packed up already for the offseason and I expect to see a big game out of Chris Johnson, as he breaks 2,000 yards rushing.
Ravens -10.5 over Raiders - Baltimore is playing for their playoff lives and the Raiders, while playing better of late, just won't be able to slow Ray Rice and the Ravens.

Last Week: 3-1
Season: 26-26-1
