Glauber's hot start fizzled a bit last week, and he was overtaken in the Newsday competition by Rod Boone

I have to eat some crow too, because I ripped him for picking the Jets to cover last week. Oops.

This week, he loves the Patriots. And who can blame him against Ryan Fitzpatrick (a Harvard man) and the woeful Bills. I'm going a different route for my "best bet," although I too like the Pats to cover.

Anyway, here are the rest of his (and my) picks.

(All picks against the spread)

Giants (-3) over Titans

49ers (-2.5) over Chiefs

Vikings (-11) over Lions

Patriots (-14) over Bills, best bet

Falcons (+4.5) over Saints

Steelers (-3) over Bucs

Bengals (-3) over Panthers

Ravens (-10.5) over Browns

Cowboys (+3) over Texans

Redskins (-3.5) over Rams

Eagles (-3) over Jaguars

Broncos (+5.5) over Colts

Raiders (+4.5) over Cardinals

Chargers (-5.5) over Seahawks

Jets (+2.5) over Dolphins

Packers (-3) over Bears

Best bet: Patriots

Best bets: 1-1

Last week: 7-8-1

Season record: 16-14-2
