The Miami Dolphins will be playing meaningful games for at least the next 2 weeks. We can only hope that they win one of them and make the final week of the season meaningful. In fact, it would be great if we get to see the Dolphins make the playoffs for the first time since 2008, wouldn’t it?

Our Pitiful Picks were….well….pitiful earlier in the season, but we’ve come on strong of late. We went 4-0 last week and will try to continue our hot streak. We’re 34-26 on the season, so lets see if we can put some more distance between us and the .500 mark (just like the Dolphins will attempt to do!)
The Miami Dolphins will be doing exactly what a lot of Dolphins fans will be doing on Sunday…..watching other teams play football. The Dolphins are still doing their soul searching, following their 19-14 loss to the Bills on Thursday night. The Dolphins preparations for the Seahawks will begin tomorrow and we’ll have a lot on that upcoming matchup later this week.
For today, we’re going to try to get back on the right track with our Pitiful Picks. Last week, they were….pitiful. We went 1-3 last Sunday, but were right to pick the Bills against the Dolphins on Thursday. Our season record now stands at 21-17. Time to get back on track people!
Green Bay Packers -3 over Detroit Lions
The Packers are coming off of a bye week and head to Detroit to take on their division rivals, the Detroit Lions. The Packers have Aaron Rogers and they’ve been playing better of late. Calvin Johnson still isn’t 100%, which hurts the Lions. I think this game is where the Packers start their playoff push and win this game by a touchdown. Packers 31 Lions 24
New Orleans Saints -5 over Oakland Raiders
In my opinion, this line says a lot about this game. The Saints are under .500 and yet they are a 5 point favorite ON THE ROAD. The Saints have been playing like the Saints in recent weeks and I expect that to continue. The Saints still need to sure up their passing defense, but if this game gets to be a shootout, I’ll take Drew Brees and Marques Colston over Carson Palmer. This game could be a high scoring one, so expect some fireworks. Saints 33 Raiders 27 (cont’d on page 2, click below)
