Greg Cote’s Week 14 NFL picks

We shatter the record for “accentuating the positive” by mentioning, in the context of yet another lousy week, that we nailed the Dolphins' upset win in New York and also had four other ‘dogs-with-points including Texans over Pats. Now, the reality check. At the season's three-quarters mark, we are cascading to an historically bad year. Our overall .571 mark would be our worst in 23 seasons doing this (.573, 2008), and our sub-Mendoza .393 mark against the spread would be our worst by a ton (.449, 2006). I lead the league in woe. [Note: Thursday-game pick was Jaguars (+3) over Texans, 24-20].
