Why? Are they coming to watch US play? They'll need luck to get good seats.

BTW: PLEASE, PLEASE, Miami - kick their butts

that "weak" defense is also 3rd in the league against the run

That defense is looking pretty damn good to me.

GO DOLPHINS!

I didn't see the game (i was at the bears game ) but it seems that they shut down ricky williams pretty well. too bad that other running back ran all over them apparently.

Williams ran over 100 yards. It's hardly a "shut down".

Thank god, we (the Chargers) still have a slim chance to make the playoffs. A must win at KC next week is gonna be tough.

Ricky Williams ran over 100 yards, and most of the first half they used ricky as a decoy by running many play action passes. I will take 100 yards in a victory over 220+ yards in a loss.

The Refs should have been wearing Black and Silver with the way they were calling that game.

Can't wait to see Chris Carter vs. the Vikings

Now if only Tennesse can beat New England

I should have said "contained". Compared to his last few 200+ yard monster games 101 yards seemed to be pretty low. (of course oakland's got a great rushing defense). Of course the victory is what matters and I predicted Miami would win although I like both teams.

Naah. The Dolphins will win in Minnesota where they will be protected from the elements.

New England will be very difficult; I just hope the weather isn't too bad. 40 degrees and sunny would be nice. But just in case there's a blizzard, keep that guy with the snow plow off the field!

If they win out they may very well get home field throughout the AFC playoffs and can avoid the Great White Northern part of the country.

Actually, you don't want Walt Coleman to be the referee in that game.

not really. the run defense didnt play all that badly. letting ricky get a little over 100 yards isnt that bad. the secondary is what sucked today. they put 3 different guys on chambers in the game and no one could seem to cover him well on a constant basis. it will be nice once charles woodson and tory james are back. it doesnt help the raiders top 3 corners are all hurt.
