The Miami Dolphins are on a hot streak, but can it continue against the Oakland Raiders? Let's see what the experts have to say.
Oakland Raiders (7-4) at Miami Dolphins (3-8)
Talk about history meaning nothing: In Week 12 last year, the Dolphins beat Oakland by 16, with Ricky Williams rushing for 95 yards, Chad Henne outdueling Bruce Gradkowski, and the Dolphins holding Darren McFadden to two yards rushing. This year, in Week 13, you can substitute Reggie Bush, Matt Moore, Carson Palmer and Michael Bush in. And the result will be the same.
The experts at ESPN are a bit split on who they think will win the game.
Peter Schrager of Fox Sports like the Raiders to win in the cross country trip:
Oakland at Miami: There was a great moment in the NFL Films' footage from the Raiders locker room after Sunday's 25-20 win over the Bears. Coach Hue Jackson brought Sebastian Janikowski and Shane Lechler to the front of the locker room and as the only remaining members from the last time an Oakland squad was 7-4, asked them to say a few words. Lechler spoke, saying they still had a long road ahead and then looked to Janikowski. Sea-Bass sort of nodded, then shrugged off the opportunity to address the team with some long-winded speech, instead muttering, "I'm good." Incredible. Love Lechler and Janikowski. They need a movie, They could be the best comedic duo since Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
The Pick: Raiders 24, Dolphins 17
