Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Dolphins at Bengals

530PM
Miami Dolphins (1-2) at Cincinnatti Bengals (1-2)
(-7.5) (O/U 44.5) 

Really rough start to the season for both of these teams. Not so much because they are bad, but because they have both played brutal schedules. 

Miami played in Seattle and in New England their first two games and gave both teams a fight, before struggling to an overtime win in Cleveland last week at home. 

Cincinnati’s two losses come at the hands of Denver and Pittsburgh, two of the AFC’s best.

Hawks NFL Picks: Week 9 (Thursday Night Football)

Hawks-NFL-Picks-Week-9-tnf
By Brent “The Hawk” Walker
Cleveland Browns (2-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (7-0)
Line: CIN -11.5
O/U: 44.5
 Two teams going in completely different directions face off in this one as the Bengals remain one of only four undefeated teams left, and the Browns have lost 3 straight.
Last week the Bengals won an ugly game against the Steelers as Andy Dalton and Ben Roethlisberger combined for 5 picks.
In their game against Arizona, Cleveland was in control early, leading 20-7 before the Cardinals scored 27 unanswered points for a 34-20 final.
There isn’t really a whole lot more to say as it is a complete mismatch that favors the Bengals in just about every category. It’s even in Cincinnati.
At first glance picking this game is probably the easiest Thursday Night game yet. Cincinnati should win easily but damn this season has been unpredictable, to the point that I won’t be all that surprised if Cleveland somehow pulls it off.
Still going with the safe pick though.
Bengals 31 Browns 17

Like they so often do the Ravens slipped into the playoffs as a wildcard team once again. In fact since John Harbaugh became head coach 7 years ago they have only missed the playoffs once, in 2013, and have been a wildcard team in 5 of those 6 playoff years. They would go to Pittsburgh in 2014 as a 6 seed and defeat the 3rd seeded Steelers 30-17,  then fall to the Patriots in the Divisional round 35-31.
QB Joe Flacco will enter his 8th year as the Ravens QB and had his best year to date in 2014 throwing for 3,986 yards. 27 Td’s and only 12 Int’s for a QB rating of 91.0. Flacco’s numbers have never been eye popping but he limits his mistakes and has proven himself over and over again to be clutch come playoff time.
Fiery, shit talking veteran Steve Smith had yet another great year in 2014 with 79 catches for 1065 yards and 6 Td’s. After 15 years of consistently being one of the league’s best receivers, Smith has decided that he will retire at the end of this season.
