Last week, Oakland kept Mike Francesa's NFL picks from perfection. This week? The Bills. But he had another 4-1 week. 18-16-1 for the season. Probably celebrated by flying his private jet up to see his old place in Saratoga.Amazing how Francesa tried the old, "I'm no longer taking the Bills because Jeff Tuel is the QB." No, sorry. Picks in on Football Friday are the picks - no disclaimers.

The Buffalo Bills’ record in Stevie Johnson’s five-plus seasons with the team is 32-57.
