I'm going to keep this prediction post short and sweet because quite frankly, I'm about as sure about this game as I have been about a Dolphins game in some time.
Miami will win this game easily.
Wow. When is the last time anyone could legitimately say that and not be thought foolish?
But it's true. Miami is a pretty good team right now and the Buccaneers are putrid. There really shouldn't be any trouble leaving this week behind with a win.
If Miami should somehow struggle, or even lose, well, the season's pretty much over at that point, I'd say. But I'm not worried about it. I don't view this as a trap game or anything like that. Miami just has to go out there, put in a hard day's work, and take care of its business.
I'm confident they will. I'm picking Miami to win. My season record predicting the Dolphins is 5-3.
After last week's loss, Miami's playoff chances fell to 14%
