This week Dominick predicts the outcome of the Giants -Dolphins and the Colts-Buccaneers.

Run Ricky Run is the Dolphins key to victory in this Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.

Williams needs to carry the ball at least 25 times against the Giants if they want to have a chance.

We all saw what happened on opening day against second-year expansion team, the Houston Texans, where Williams carried the ball only 13 times for 36 yards in a loss.

The Giants have one of the most underrated running backs in the league with Tiki Barber. Can the Giants inexperienced offensive line create some running lanes for Barber against a stiff and aggressive Miami defense?

It will be a big test for them.

Another big question is can Kerry Collins find success against an All-Pro Miami secondary, which held Drew Bledsode to 95 yards passing two weeks ago?

Don’t look for a high-scoring affair in this one. Look for one of the kickers to be the hero of this game.

Prediction:

Giants 13 Dolphins 10

This week’s big Monday night game is between the Super Bowl champion Buccaneers and Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. The big question is can Indy’s offense find any success against one of the all-time great defenses? The Bucs are a pass-rushing team with speed at every position. So far this year we have only seen two weaknesses, which are the special teams and run defense.

If Edgerrin James can find some success with the running game, and Manning works his audible call magic, then they have a chance. But if the Colts O-line doesn’t create any openings for James, and Manning is constantly under pressure, then it will be a long day for the Indy. I see the Buc’s winning with defense.

Prediction:

Bucs 20 Colts 10
