IND 17 - MIA 20
Not totally sure why I am picking Miami in this one as they normally burn me when I pick them but I just have a feeling that they will have a good game against a team that we have in recent years had decent luck against, winning 4 out of the last 5. Despite the Dolphins being out of the postseason mix and the Colts still pushing to land a playoff spot the Dolphins do enough this week to narrowly edge out the Colts, 20 to 17.

IND 14 - MIA 24
This game is gong to be a barnburner. Not really. Only picking the Dolphins because I feel they are the better team, but I won't be disappointed if they lose. This game might be a struggle for both teams, offenses are bad, defesnes are bad. Still expect it to be a low scoring game and I see the Dolphins winning somehow. Maybe by allowing Lamar Miller to run more.
IND 24 - MIA 14
Miami were supposed to be a team destined for the playoffs this season. Once again, reality sinks in. Indy, at 6-8, still have plenty to play for this season, sitting one game behind the Houston Texans in the AFC South. Miami no longer have anything to play for. The team may surprise me, but I just cannot see this team winning again this season.

IND 10 - MIA 14
It makes me sad that I was looking forward to this matchup in the pre-season and now that's it here I have literally no desire to watch this game. I think Miami wins in a close one to get their last win of the season, and gets one step closer to putting a brutal year behind them.
IND 17 - MIA 13
This will be just an awful game to watch. Both teams suck, but the Dolphins suck more. Top 10 pick is now a real possibility!
IND 17 - MIA 20
At this point, I may as well just make homer picks. Why not take a shot at the Dolphins winning in Miami against a team using their backup quarterback?
