Our Week 5 picks

The Brett Favre Show is coming to town on Monday, and this time, the gunslinger is toting a new friend. And no, I'm not talking about the friend he may have showed off to Jenn Sterger.

Yes, Randy Moss will be playing his third game at the New Meadowlands Stadium (including the preseason) when his new/old team, the Vikings, takes on the Jets.

So who do our "experts" like in that one? Rock, Boone, Glauber and myself all like the Jets, while Boell, who went 6-8 in his first week at the helm of the picks column, likes Minny. Too bad we'll have to wait until late Monday night to see if Boell gets bragging rights over us.

Anyway, here are the rest of Glauber's (and my) picks, including our best bets and season records.

Good bounce back week from Glauber last week. He went 10-4 to improve to a Newsday best 34-22-2, although his best bet (Green Bay) did not cover. Me? Another .500 week, and my best bet (Indy) didn't cover for the first time this year.

(All picks against the spread. Miami, New England, Pittsburgh and Seattle are all on a bye.)
