Pitiful Picks: Dolphins will keep it close against Cardinals

The Miami Dolphins had a bad week 3….so did our Pitiful Picks, as they truly lived up to their name.  The Dolphins were left heartbroken at home when usually reliable, Dan Carpenter missed 2 field goals.  Our picks last week weren’t really heartbreaking, they were just pitiful.  After starting 4-1 on the season, we dropped to 4-5 after losing all 4 games last week.  Like the Dolphins, we’ll try to rebound this week:

San Fransisco 49ers -3.5 over New York Jets

The Jets looked pathetic last week.  If Dan Carpenter would have made the game winning field goal in overtime, the Jets would probably have heard about Tebow again all week.  But he didn’t and the didn’t.  So the Jets sit at 2-1, yet they look like a pretty sad football team.  Their opponents, the 49ers, are coming off of a humbling loss to the Vikings.  The 49ers will be focused for this game, as they didn’t even fly home after their loss to the Vikings.  The 49ers stayed in Ohio this week to avoid multiple cross-country flights, so they’ll be ready.

I watched the Jets last week and 2 weeks ago against the Steelers.  The Jets simply aren’t that good.  Their offense is anemic at times and will struggle against the 49ers defense, which is one of the NFL’s best.  I can see Mark Sanchez having a long day and the 49ers winning this game by at least a touchdown….say 20-13.

New England Patriots -3.5 over Buffalo Bills

The Patriots are 1-2 and currently occupy the basement of the AFC East with our Miami Dolphins.  This week they head to Buffalo and face a Bills team that they have had their way with recently.  I can’t see the Patriots falling to 1-3, I just can’t see it.  The Bills are 2-1 following victories over the Browns and Chiefs.  The team that beat them was the Jets, who we’ve already said, suck!

The Patriots offense has looked good, despite losing their last 2 games.  I think Tom Brady will have a solid day and the Patriots will rough up the Bills, in Buffalo.  I’d say the score will look something like 31-17.  (cont’d on page 2, click below)
