It's the Sports Guru here offering my analysis and picks on the Monday Night football game between the Giants and the Dolphins.
@mchlyang posted a challenge on this game and I'm taking a stand.

My pick? The Dolphins will take this one.

No, the Dolphins have not been great this season. Far from it, really. They are 5-7, but are coming off a good 15-13 win in Baltimore last week. It was a good performance for a team that has really struggled.
But QB Ryan Tannehill has proven that at times he can operate as a very solid NFL quarterback. He can make some really good throws, and with WRs Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker there to help him, Miami has lots of chances to spread the field and show off their speed.
The defense is nothing special, but I think the offense has it in them to put up points, especially against a bad Giants defense.

The Giants lost a heartbreaker to the Jets in OT last week, and I think it's time to face the facts with this team: they just aren't very good.

Sure, Odell Beckham may be the best WR in the league. But Eli Manning is always underwhelming and the defense often just fails to get it done. They've lost 3 in a row and have completely failed to take advantage of a super-weak NFC East, though they still have a shot at the division, somehow.
On the road on Monday Night, I just don't think the Giants have it in them to win this game.

I'm taking the Dolphins in a close one, 21-17.

RB Lamar Miller and Tannehill both have big games as the Dolphins beat up on the Giants injured defense and end New York's playoff dreams. It won't be a pretty game as neither of these teams is very good, but Miami will get the job done.

Who are you picking?

I'll go with the Giants.
@mchlyang thanks! i think the Dolphins can take it!
But overall, solid analysis!
Giants there will turn it around
