Free NFL Picks Week 7 Analysis: Former Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall could put the screws to his former team with Miami missing a starting safety from a pass-defense that is suspect in coverage. Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler (97.4 passer rating) should out duel streaky Dolphins signal-caller Ryan Tannehill (81.2 passer rating) who is battling a calf injury. The Bears pass-rush led by All-Pro DE Jared Allen should also be able to harass the erratic Tannehill into mistakes. Miami Dolphins vs Chicago Bears Vegas Odds Total is at 47.5 points
Miami plays with a lack of passion at times which reflects the personality of their head coach who is anything but a “fireball.” Chicago head coach Marc Trestman is a sharp offensive mind and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker was able to hold Atlanta to just 13 points with an undermanned unit. The Dolphins special teams are among the worst in the NFL and their vaunted pass-rush has unperformed.
