COOKIE’S PIGSKIN PICKS FOR WEEK FIVE

Cookie, The Good Luck Gnome is healing from his fall but he did get the game right last week. (Cookie’s record: 2-1)

THE PICK:
Bills 24, Titans 17

Here’s what others think:

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports:

This looks like a be-careful game for the Titans. They are coming off two tough, physical games, both victories, and now must go on the road to face a team they should beat. I think they win it, but this will be close.

Titans 17, Bills 16

Ryann Wilson of CBS Sports:

The Titans are the best team no one’s talking about. Mike Vrabel has gotten off to a start start in his first month as coach and Marcus Mariota had one of the best games of his career in Sunday’s overtime win over the Eagles. Also awesome: rookie second-rounder Harold Landry, who was inexplicably overlooked as a first-round talent, leaving many teams now regretting the decision to pass him over. The Bills’ Super Bowl unexpectedly came two weeks ago when they went into Minnesota and whipped the Vikings. It has otherwise been a disaster in Buffalo, where only the Cardinals have been outscored more (minus-57 to minus-56). When you’re losing by an average of two touchdowns, things are so far off the rails you can no longer see the tracks./

Titans 28, Bills 10

David Steel of Sporting News:

Speaking of sacks … Josh Allen didn’t even play all of the Bills’ season opener, and he’s been sacked more than any quarterback in the league so far. The Titans are stingy on defense — mostly against less-than-potent offenses, but the Bills fit that description. Back-to-back wins over the Jaguars and Eagles have the Titans reaching for bigger things, and Marcus Mariota’s elbow seems to be healed. The Bills have had their unpredictable moments, but this week seems pretty predictable.

Titans 23, Bills 6

Patrick Webb (Head Honcho, CBBB):

(Patrick’s record this season: 0-4)
