PicksDOLPHINS-JETS, GAME OF WEEK, BIG UPSETS AND ALL OF OUR NFL WEEK 14 PICKS: Off our record-setting 2018 season we've had a solid 29th year of NFL picks thus far in the Miami Herald. Last week was a tough 9-7 overall and a solid 9-7 against the point spread. We didn’t see the Dolphins’ exhilarating upset of Philly coming, but counter-punched by hitting another Upset of the Week with winless Bengals beating Jets (“Aawwk!”). Also nailed a mini-upset with Steelers over Browns, a dog-with-points on Bills, and a rare Exacto with Packers’ 31-13 win over Giants. Alas our Week 14 got off to a thud of a start last night. I've been slow to quit on the Cowboys --to my detriment. Lesson learned? For all of our Week 14 picks, including Dolphins at Stinkin' Jets, our Game of the Week, our Upset of the Week and all the rest, please visit the motherlode of prognostication that I like to call NFL Week 14 Gems.

APSE-HONORED WORK: The Associated Press Sports Editors 2018 writing awards ranked us a Top 10 national sports columnist in the major-outlet category. Thanks, APSE. Here are the five nominated columns that earned the honor: At Doral, an annual tradition since 1962 is replaced by silence, and by what's missing / Marlins' Jose Fernandez statue is divisive yet has a chance to serve a greater purpose /NFL has moral obligation to help Buonicontis and Kiicks while it limits future suffering / What led to El Clasico Miami began with Joe Robbie's unlikely, accidental love of soccer / With 59 home runs, Stanton still had a magic season. Just hope this wasn't goodbye.
