CHIEFS (3-2) @DOLPHINS (2-3) Time, line -- 7 p.m., Dolphins by 1 1/2 Skinny -- Hurricane Wilma postponed Dan Marino's Hall of Fame celebration and chased the Dolphins and Chiefs into a Friday night special. The Chiefs are tougher against the run this season, not so hot against the pass. Miami's Gus Frerotte is little more than serviceable in the passing game. Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown will have to make the difference for the Dolphins. Pick -- Chiefs

Browns 7, Chargers 6 Strategy: The Cleveland Browns haven't significantly altered their philosophies since they traveled to M&T Bank Stadium in Week 4, but they are executing much more efficiently. On offense, they want to pound the ball with rookie running back Trent Richardson and attack defenses with quick throws, screen passes and deeper throws off play action. Defensively, they usually rushed four or five defenders on Sunday and mixed up their coverages behind their 4-3 front.

John Harbaugh may have raised some eyebrows - or at least spurred some speculation - when he said at the owners meetings yesterday that former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is “definitely” on the team's list. I don't want to put words in Harbaugh's mouth, but I didn't come away from that statement believing that the Ravens have legitimate interest in Jacobs, one of many accomplished running backs on the free-agent market. I thought Harbaugh was simply affirming that Jacobs is out there and available and he is one of many options for the Ravens in trying to find a veteran backup running back and insurance if youngsters Anthony Allen and Damien Berry don't seize the opportunity behind Ray Rice . Cedric Benson , Ryan Grant , Joseph Addai , Jackie Battle , Ronnie Brown , Justin Forsett and many other ball carriers are also available as the free-agent running back market has moved at a glacial pace.

THREE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO RIGHT ... 1 Dominate with the running game. The Dolphins have been susceptible against the run, allowing more than 120 yards on the ground in four of their past eight games. Suddenly-disgruntled Willis McGahee has averaged 94.4 rushing yards for the Ravens in five games in his hometown of Miami. 2 Cage up "The Wildcat." The Ravens were the first team to solve Miami's gimmick offense. The Dolphins' Wildcat offense - which is a direct snap to running back Ronnie Brown - produced 4 yards on five plays.

Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft. Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick.

Among the holes left to fill for the Ravens, who have endured a mass roster exodus in free agency, is at running back, where the team has gone from having a three-headed monster to one proven back in Ray Rice. It's a lower priority behind adding a veteran wide receiver and another potential pass rusher, and it's on par with bringing in a reliable backup for quarterback Joe Flacco. But the market is drying up, so they better move quickly before the few solid remaining free-agent backs who are still out there sign elsewhere.

Like the old Mad Magazine cartoon of Spy vs. Spy, the Miami Dolphins' gadget Wildcat offense and the Ravens' complex defense offer an intriguing matchup of clever schemes. The first time around, Oct. 19 in Miami, it was clearly advantage Ravens as they held the Dolphins to 4 yards on five plays run out of the Wildcat in a 27-13 win; all five were rushes. Before their game with the Ravens, the Dolphins had averaged more than 10 yards per Wildcat snap (and scored six touchdowns) on 25 plays over a three-game span against the New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers and Houston Texans.

An offensive wrinkle that had spread through the NFL over the past two seasons appears to be losing steam within the very team that introduced it to the league in 2008. The Miami Dolphins kick-started the employment of the Wildcat, a formation that usually entailed a direct snap to running back Ronnie Brown and gave him the freedom to either run with the football or pass it to an open receiver. After employing the tactic more than 170 times in the previous two years, the Dolphins have run the Wildcat just 20 times this season.

In the midst of being tackled Sunday, Eagles running back Ronnie Brown tried to throw the ball away and fumbled. This will be the most idiotic thing you see on a NFL field this season now that Channing Crowder has retired .

The mystery of Ricky Williams turned out not to be a mystery at all. World traveler, former Heisman Trophy winner and onetime NFL rushing champion, the Ravens' newest running back was anything but enigmatic Tuesday in his first meeting with the press. He was insightful, reflective and engaging, seemingly content with life. In an 8-minute interview conducted under a tent top in the middle of a downpour, Williams acknowledged past indiscretions but avowed few regrets. He said he was still a rebel at heart, but one who had learned to channel the rebelliousness.

To beat the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens defense must tame the "Wildcat." The Wildcat formation is Miami's version of the single wing created by Pop Warner at the turn of the 20th century. The alignment - which uses the abilities of running backs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams - has helped the Dolphins win two of their past three games. "It's been highly successful up to this point, so it's definitely going to change some things, and we definitely have to look at some things," Ravens linebacker-defensive end Terrell Suggs said.

When the cheering is replaced by silence or even boos, the Miami Dolphins know they're in control. This season, the Dolphins are 4-0 on the road, turning opposing stadiums into destinations as intimidating and forbidding as rose gardens and amusement parks. So when Miami visits M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday for a showdown with the Ravens , quieting the fans will be part of the objective. "That feels good," Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown said during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday.
