The Miami Dolphins are looking to keep pace with the field in the AFC today, before they head into the bye week. Like the Dolphins, we want to keep pace with the imaginary field in Pitiful Picks. Last week we went 2-2, giving us an overall record on the season of 10-7. The Dolphins need to be consistent and so do we. We’ve had 4-0 weeks and we’v had 0-4 weeks. Hopefully both the Dolphins and PhinNation can put together a solid effort this week!
New York Jets -3 over Indianapolis Colts
I really, really, really hate picking the Jets, but I think the line is too low and the Jets will give a good effort with their season on the line today. The Jets have lost 2 straight and their season could spiral out of control with a loss at home to the Colts. Mark Sanchez answers more questions each week about Tim Tebow and I think he’ll give a good effort today. The Colts are coming off of a very emotional win on Sunday at home against the Packers. So call this a bit of a let down game. Add to this that the Colts are pretty banged up, injury-wise, and I think the Jets take this game by more than the 3 points. Jets 24 Colts 17
Arizona Cardinals -4 over Buffalo Bills
Staying in the AFC East, but this time we’re picking against a division rival. The Cardinals are not THAT good, but at home, I think they’ll be able to put up some points on the Bills. I know, Arizona’s offensive line is terrible, but so is the Bills defense. The Bills traveled to San Francisco last week and lost by 40 points. They have to travel all the way across the country again to play a solid opponent. I don’t necessarily think this is a blow out, but I think the Cardinals cover the 4 points.
