For Week 18 of the NFL, Colin Cowherd’s “Blazin’ Five” picks are:

  1. Falcons vs Saints
    • Pick: Atlanta Falcons (+3)
    • Prediction: Falcons win 24-23.
    • Rationale: Atlanta’s strong defense recently, including leading the league in sacks, and the Saints’ inability to defend the run and potential absence of Alvin Kamara.
  2. Seahawks vs Cardinals
    • Pick: Arizona Cardinals (+3)
    • Prediction: Cardinals win 27-24.
    • Rationale: Seattle’s declining defense, Kyler Murray’s improving performance, and Arizona’s motivation to win.
  3. Bears vs Packers
    • Pick: Chicago Bears (+3)
    • Prediction: Bears win 28-27.
    • Rationale: Chicago’s strong defense and offensive improvement, Green Bay’s defensive struggles, and the Packers’ recent unconvincing wins.
  4. Eagles vs Giants
    • Pick: New York Giants (+5.5)
    • Prediction: Giants win 27-26.
    • Rationale: Tyrod Taylor’s mistake-free play, the Giants’ recent decent performance, and the Eagles’ poor defense since week eight.
  5. Bills vs Dolphins
    • Pick: Buffalo Bills (-2.5)
    • Prediction: Bills win 33-27.
    • Rationale: Buffalo’s dominance over Miami, Josh Allen’s exceptional performance against the Dolphins, and Miami’s struggles against top teams.

Blazing 5 Picks for Week 3:

Chargers (-1.5) at Vikings

Cowherd picked the Chargers -1.5 over the Vikings because he believes the Chargers are the better team with the better quarterback, roster, and offense that doesn’t turn the ball over, while the Vikings have been sloppy with the most giveaways in the league and a non-existent rushing offense. He predicts the Chargers will win 27-24.

Packers at Saints (+1.5)

Cowherd picked the Saints +1.5 against the Packers because the Saints have three good receivers in Olave, Thomas, and Shaheed, and their defense has held opponents under 20 points for 8 straight games, while the Packers have the youngest roster, injuries on the offensive line, and have struggled to generate first downs and big plays. He predicts the Saints will win 24-23.

Bills at Commanders (+6.5)

Cowherd picked the Commanders +6.5 against the Bills because of the bad weather forecast which favors the team getting points, the Commanders defense leads the NFL in sacks and pressures which could disrupt Josh Allen, and he believes it will be a sloppy, low-scoring game. He predicts the Bills win 27-24.

Patriots (-2.5) at Jets

Cowherd picked the Patriots -2.5 over the Jets because of the coaching and quarterback advantage with Belichick and Jones, the Patriots outplayed the Jets in recent matchups, and Belichick historically dominates young mistake-prone QBs like Zach Wilson. He predicts the Patriots win 21-17.

Rams (+3) at Bengals

Cowherd picked the Rams +3 against the Bengals because Joe Burrow is injured and may not play, leaving the Bengals without a deep passing game, while the Rams offense has impressed with new players and leads the NFL in scrimmage TDs. He predicts the Rams win 30-27.
