Greg Cote’s Week 6 NFL picks

I have been writing these Friday Page NFL predictions for 23 seasons now, since 1991, and last week continued the worst three-week slump of my career. Somehow, I have turned into the Jacksonville Jaguars. Last week’s records both straight-up and against the spread were so bad I cannot bring myself to say them aloud. I did nail my Upset of the Week – Colts over Seahawks, “Aawwk!” – and had Cowboys-with-points over Denver, but that was it, friends. Everything else was a freefall on a defective bungee cord. But I’ll bounce back like Wile E. Coyote. Smashed in the ravine one minute, good as new the next. [Note: Thursday-game pick was Bears (-8) over Giants, 34-23].
