Colin started this week’s segment lamenting his 2-3 record from last week, saying how he should have gone 5-0 but Seattle blow the huge lead and Rams missed 3 field goals and threw a redzone pick…yada yada yada. Better luck on this week’s picks Herd!
Quick note, as you may have noticed, we usually combine Cousin Sal’s picks with this weekly column, but Cousin Sal has just been too flaming too not get his own column. So in case you’re interested, you can find Cousin Sal’s Picks for Week 6 in his own column going forward (Spoiler alert…Cousin Sal took the same 3 plays).
Onto the picks:
The Herd’s Blazing 5 Picks NFL 2015 Week 6:
[Loser] Denver (-4) at Cleveland – Browns run defense stinks, which should help CJ Anderson get back on track. And browns are having problem running the ball themselves. McCown should watch out for Denver’s pass rushers, might be a long day for him in the pocket. Per the Herd….”Swallow the 4, 26-17 Broncos roll” (Same pick as Cousin Sal here by the way).
[Winner] New England at Indianapolis (+10) – public is heavily taking the Patriots here with 88% of the money, fade the public! Andrew Luck should be back this week. His logic basically is saying Patriots can’t play this well entire season. 31-24 New England wins the game, but do not cover.
[Loser] Miami at Tennessee (-2.5) – Titans have only lost by combined 3 points in the last 2 games to pretty good teams. Their offense has been fairly efficient moving the ball, they just haven’t been putting it in the endzone. Tennessee covers 24-20.
[Loser] New York Giants (+4) at Philadelphia – Eagles stink at home with 0.500 winning record in last 26 home games. Colin thinks Giants is one of the most underrated teams in the NFL right now. And he HATES Sam Bradford, especially with those 2 redzone picks last week. Giants run defense is dependable. Giants wins 27-24.
[Winner] Washington at New York Jets (-6) – Jets are great on defense again this year, especially with a great dline, while Washington’s oline is extremely banged up. Chris Ivory has been red hot recently and Brandon Marshall is lighting it up. Colin thinks Jets blowout the Skins here 31-13 behind it’s suffocating defense, calling it his blowout of the week.
