Greg Cote’s Week 12 NFL picks

What a weird week in what has been a weird, depressing season of picks for me. Enjoyed a solid and needed 11-4 mark overall, which normally bodes well for the against-the-spread record, too. But not for me last week. Of course not! I nailed two outright upset picks with Dolphins over Chargers and Steelers over Lions but not enough else went right. The three pushes were 3-point wins by the Colts, Bears and Saints. I was on the right side of all three games, meaning one point each cost me. Story of my season. The goal now: To not set personal career lows across the board. Incentive doesn't get much sadder, friends. [Note: Thursday-game pick was Saints (-9) over Falcons, 34-20].
