The Patriots Will Lose to the Dolphins

Rob SteeleCorrespondent ISeptember 21, 2008

Are you still laughing? Well, as I'm watching the game with only one quarter down, it appears that the control is in the hands of the "defeated" Dolphins.

I'm not going to write much about the game right now, but I'd like to throw this prediction out there and I'll follow up after the Dolphins win, of course.

If there wasn't a better time for the Dolphins to step up and start winning, it's now. Ronnie Brown is healthy, and he and Ricky Williams make up the NFL's most underrated tandem.

Running shouldn't be an issue with the Dolphins, but with a non-existent passing game, a lot of attention has been put on the Miami rushing attack. Look for Chad Pennington to take some attention off of the running game by making a couple throws down the field.

The Dolphins' defense is looking sharp, and it seems like Joey Porter is backing up his mouth.

Final score: 28-23, Phins.
