Greg Cote’s Week 5 NFL picks

I could sugarcoat or equivocate, but what would be the point. I had another lousy week, OK? Had the Saints-Dolphins game pegged and had Browns-with-points over Bengals, but not a lot else went right. I did get unlucky, with at least four teams I’d picked blowing late leads. (Thanks for that, choking Texans and miserable Matt Schaub! Not that I’m bitter). Now hopefully some of that luck will turn. The past two weeks have been a freefall, but I trust the bungee cord is about to kick in. Optimism: The Last Resort of the Hopeless. (Note: Thursday-game pick was Bills (+4) over Browns, 23-20).
