ESPN experts pick Dolphins over Ravens

By James Walker

The Miami Dolphins (3-1) are still getting respect from ESPN experts, despite their 21-point loss to New Orleans on “Monday Night Football.” Most pundits believe the Dolphins will bounce back in Sunday’s AFC clash with the Baltimore Ravens (2-2).

Eight of 12 ESPN experts pick the Dolphins to beat the defending Super Bowl champions at home this weekend. Both teams are coming off bad losses. The Ravens lost to Buffalo in Week 4.

This is a big character game for Miami, the first hint of adversity for the Dolphins after starting the season 3-0. They were embarrassed on national television and have a short week of preparation for a veteran Baltimore team. Miami has a lot of challenges this week.

Although I am 4-0 picking Dolphins games this year, this is a tough one to predict. I will make my pick here Friday afternoon.
