Pitiful Picks: Can the Dolphins pull off a big upset against the Patriots?

The Miami Dolphins losing streak may be at 3 games, but our Pitiful Picks are making a comeback!  We were 10-14 entering last week’s games and after a 4-1 week, we’re now just a game under .500 at 14-15.  This is the week where we break back on top….hopefully the Dolphins can do the same.  The Dolphins have lost 3 straight games and are in desperate need of win as they head to Foxboro this afternoon.

Here are our picks for week 8 of the NFL, GOOD LUCK!

Jets +6 over Bengals

When this game first came out, I thought it would be a 4 point spread.  With the 6 points, it’s hard not to like the Jets in this one.  I hate the Jets in general, but for this game, I’ll pick them with the points.  The Bengals are playing well of late, but the Jets defense is playing better than anyone thought they would this season.  As long as Geno Smith doesn’t turn the ball over all day, this should be a close one.  Prediction:  Bengals 24 Jets 20

Falcons +3 over Cardinals

I know the Falcons are under .5o0 and I know they are missing some of their weapons.  But getting points against the Cardinals is an insult.  The Cardinals are inconsistent if nothing else this season and I think the Falcons will find a way to win the game.  Prediction:  Falcons 27 Cardinals 26

Redskins +13 over Broncos

I know this is going to be a loss….I just know it.  But that’s why they’re called Pitiful Picks, people!  There are 2 ways to think of this game.  You either think Peyton Manning goes off after losing an emotional game to the Colts last week OR you remember how bad the Broncos defense has been in recent weeks.  I’m going with the later and trusting in RG3 to keep the scoring going.  Even if this is a shootout, I think the Redskins (or whatever they should be called now) will keep it within 2 touchdowns.  Prediction:  Broncos 38 Redskins 27  (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
