Greg Cote’s Thursday night NFL pick

This begins the 95th season for the NFL, the 49th for the Dolphins and (hard to believe) the 24th year for me predicting games every week in the Miami Herald. But here’s the real milestone, and here comes the wave of time-flies sadness: this is also the 30th season since Miami last appeared in a Super Bowl. Hallmark should make a specialty card for that kind of anniversary. Suggested verse: “Miami has the Dolphins, the greatest football team but that was so long ago it makes me weep and scream.” Dan Marino was a young man back then, now he’s a spokesman for AARP. Seriously. But enough of that sober reality. On to happier stuff, please. Football is back and it is Kickoff Weekend launching with a marquee Thursday night game so let the predicting begin. Ready set guess!
