In a meeting of two AFC foes, the experts like the Dolphins this weekend at home in their game against the Tennessee Titans.
The Miami Dolphins need to get back to winning if they are going to catch the New England Patriots in the AFC East. That task gets underway on Sunday afternoon at home against the Tennessee Titans, and experts seem to like 4-4 Miami to get back above .500.
The Titans come into the game at 3-6, losers of two straight. The two teams seem relatively evenly matched on offense, both coming into the game scoring right around 20 points per game.
So, it's defense in this one that could prove to be the difference. Tennessee gives up 34 per game, compared to just over 18 for the Dolphins.
On the national side, the experts unanimously went with the Dolphins. All five experts who have made picks for ESPN like Miami at home.
The folks at Yahoo! agree. Jason Cole and Les Carpenter have both picked this one, and both like the Dolphins to move to 5-4 after this week.
