Miami vs Minnesota Expert Vegas Breakdown: NFL Week 2 Picks: The Miami Dolphins (1-0) visit the Minnesota Vikings (0-1) in this week two NFL predictions match-up of non-conference foes. The last time these two teams faced each other in a NFL picks contest was in 2006 and the Dolphins won 24-20. Las Vegas odds experts have picked the Vikings as -6(-105 point favorite at home.
The Dolphins struggled in their 15-10 week one NFL picks victory over the Buffalo Bills on the road. Miami, for once, had a balanced attack, mixing the pass with the run to grind out just under 300 yards. Chad Henne, now the starting quarterback, had a solid but unspectacular day with 182 yards and no picks or TD passes. Brandon Marshall, in his Miami debut, was the go-to receiver in the NFL picks contest, as thought, with 8 catches but only 53 yards. The Dolphins running game, though, delivered with Ronnie Brown returning from a serious knee injury to lead the team in the week 1 NFL picks match-up with 65 yards and a touchdown.
TheMinnesota Vikings specialize in stopping the run so Henne is going to have to prove he can throw the ball against the Vikings in this week 1 NFL picks contest. The Vikings held the high-powered Saints offense on opening night to just over 300 yards, including just 79 rushing yards. Drew Brees was efficient in the NFL picks contest with 237 yards and 1 TD, but Henne is not Brees. The Vikes barely touched Brees so they’ll need to put some heat on the Dolphins’ young quarterback in Sunday's week 2 NFL picks contest. Linebackers Chad Greenway and E. J. Henderson were active against the Saints, combining for 21 tackles, and will be so again against the Dolphins. Miami will have a tough time running the ball against the Vkings in the NFL week 2 picks match-up so look for Henne to attack through the air – which could spell the Dolphins doom or make their day.
In this NFL week 2 picks contest, the Dolphins seem too one-dimensional to win this type of game. They brought in Marshall to pair with Henne for a more dynamic look but the offense hasn’t quite evolved yet to tackle the Vikings in Minnesota.
