Pittsburgh wins a big game

Miami stays true to losing form

November 13, 2007|By ROBERT KELLER / Pulse Correspondent

Week 10 of the NFL season has finished, and the best teams are rising to the top while the worst are settling in at the bottom.

The best game this week was the Cleveland Browns visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cleveland came into the game second in the AFC North at 5-3, while Pittsburgh sat at the top at 6-2. The Browns capitalized early to go up 21-9 at the half against Pittsburgh. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't feel like losing this game, so he came out in the second half and brought the score to 31-28, Pittsburgh.

Well, I didn't do as well as Pittsburgh. I went 1-3 with my picks this week. Cleveland lost to Pittsburgh, the Cincinnati Bengals defeated Baltimore 21-7, and Washington lost to Philadelphia 33-25. I did correctly pick the Dallas at New York game, as the Cowboys beat the Giants 31-20.

This week, I predict Miami will stay winless and fall to Philadelphia, the Baltimore Ravens will fall to Cleveland, Carolina will fall to Green Bay, and Washington will rack one up in the loss column against Dallas. Philadelphia has been playing better lately, and Miami is awful. Baltimore has lost too many key players, and the team's offense keeps coughing up the ball. Green Bay has Brett Favre. Enough said. Dallas has an excellent team and if the Washington Redskins couldn't defeat an OK Philadelphia team, then the 'Skins can't beat a very good Cowboys team.

The unthinkable has happened this week: St. Louis has won its first game. How they managed to pull it off is still beyond me, but that leaves Miami as the last remaining winless team in the NFL. By going winless for a season, this year's Miami Dolphins could join the record books with an accomplishment that is the polar opposite of the undefeated '72 Dolphins' season. Will Miami be able to pull off a win? I don't think so, but the Dolphins do have games left against the struggling Ravens, Bengals and New York Jets, who sport a combined record of 8-19.
