Let's exorcise all the demons
I have the exact prediction. With them already having seen Miami this season.. all be it without judon and gonzo this time. I think defensively they can limit big plays.. but it's all on the offense to score and attack Miami's defense.

Post your predictions here for Week 8, New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins

This contest is open to everyone, it's both a weekly and a season-long contest. Stakes are bragging rights.

*********** PLEASE NOTE THE SLIGHT CHANGE FOR THIS SEASON *********

******** Above the reply box is now an area to make your score prediction: ************

Here's an example of what it looks like:

You just slide the red markers and select your score, and then post your reply with your prediction and any additional comments in this thread so we can keep it the same way it always has been, with the exception of having you pick your score. This allows either me or @alamo to update the results much faster, ie: I've been posting the results within a day or two after the game :)

You will also want to drop a comment with your prediction as well for the sake of keeping the spirit of this contest intact as that's how @alamo has always done it. The scrollbars are just to make it easier for it to be tallied.

Getting back to the rules, as a one-time allowance for computer problems, forgetfulness, or whatever, one week can be missed and will be assigned that week's average score.

SCORING:

Your score is the COMBINED deviation of your predicted score for the Pats and opponents REGARDLESS OF DIRECTION.
For example, if you predict Patriots 31 Dolphins 23 your score is how many points off of 31 the Pats are (over or under does not matter) PLUS how many points off of 23 the Dolphins are (over or under again does not matter). Game winner does not matter. Lowest score wins.

You may change your prediction at any time before kickoff, which the window will close at that time and your selection will stand. Please keep this thread to predictions only (after you make the pick), no back-and-forth discussion of the game. A short comment explaining your pick is OK and encouraged after you've made your selection.

Good Luck!

Hoping that last week wasn't a fluke, rather a beginning

Just imagine for a minute.. if this team can somehow go on a run.. and get back into the conversation of a contender.. this would be one heck of a season for the history books.

It'd be a helluva story, as Jules would say.

Absolutely! It feels different for some reason.. this team desperately needed that win in that fashion.. they need to attack Miamis defense.. as long as Parker isn't targeted Mac should be mistake free.

Pats are going to win a hard fought game. The Dolphins won't lose on porpoise.

Wildly over-optimistic pick again.

(I don't know how I did in points last week, but I do know that there weren't many others who picked the Pats! :whistle: )

Thanks, Ian!
