Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins will face a tough test this afternoon.  Not only are they welcoming in the defending Super Bowl Champions, but they will do so coming off of a bad loss just 6 days ago.  On Monday Night, Tannehill turned the ball over 4 times and the Dolphins went on to lose by 3 touchdowns.  This week, the Dolphins need a strong bounce-back performance, as they try to improve to 4-1 on this young season, before heading into their bye week. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Our pitiful picks have continued to be…well….pitiful.  If you are looking to us for advice, please use our picks and select the opposite.  We’ve been bad so far this season.  We’re 6-11, which is obviously terrible. We’re going to try to get back on the winning track this week.  We need a 4-0 performance to get back in the game.  Let’s see what we can do: Colts +3 over Seahawks I realize the Seahawks are 4-0, but I think playing back to back weeks away from their fortress in Seattle, will catch up with them.  Truthfully, they shouldn’t have won last week against the Texans.  The Texans were up 20-3 and ultimately lost 23-20.  The Colts and Andrew Luck wouldn’t blow that type of a lead. The Colts have been playing well and I expect them to keep rolling this week. If this was -3 I’d consider taking the Colts, but since we’re getting points, this is a no-brainer.  Prediction:  Colts 27 Seahawks 23 (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
