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.

Jaguars (-3) at Falcons

Cowherd is taking the Jaguars -3 because they play well in London, going 21-9 there over the years, and this is their 10th trip. Trevor Lawrence has graded well despite a bad Chiefs game, and the Falcons have no pass rush and a struggling offense. Cowherd predicts a 30-23 Jaguars win.

Dolphins at Bills (-3)

Cowherd is taking the Bills -3 because they have a top 3 offense and defense, can control the clock and limit Tua. Josh Allen has owned Miami and their defense is weak. He sees the Bills getting right in a 31-27 win.

Bengals at Titans (+2.5)

Cowherd takes the Titans +2.5 since coach Mike Vrabel is great as an underdog. The Bengals are struggling offensively on a short week, while Tennessee can pull the upset, 27-23.

Vikings (-4) at Panthers

Cowherd likes the Vikings -4 because despite being 0-3 they move the ball well but have fluky turnovers. Carolina has no perimeter playmakers for their QB. Minnesota wins 26-17.

Patriots (+6.5) at Cowboys

Cowherd takes the Patriots +6.5 in a potential low-scoring game. New England has a great defense to slow Dallas. With Dak Prescott struggling behind a banged up line, he sees a close Cowboys 27-23 win.
