Greg Cote's Week 5 NFL picks

Our 25th season of Friday NFL picks continued on the upbeat last week at a solid 12-3 overall and a marginally acceptable 8-7 against the spread. We bull's-eyed our Upset of the Week with Giants winning at Bills ("Aawwk!") and nailed another outright upset with Bears over Raiders. Also had Jaguars with points over Colts. We will only mention the highlights, because to mention lowlights here typically would take up far too much space. (Note: Thursday-game pick was Colts (off board) over Texans, 24-17.)tmpplchld ___tmpplchld Cote's recordtmpplchld When _ Overall _ Pct. _ Vs. spread _ Pct.tmpplchld Last week _ 12-3 _ .800 _ 8-7 _ .533tmpplchld Season _ 43-20 _ .683 _ 36-26-1...
