  1. Falcons vs Saints
    • Pick: Atlanta Falcons (+3)
    • Prediction: Falcons win 24-23.

  2. Seahawks vs Cardinals
    • Pick: Arizona Cardinals (+3)
    • Prediction: Cardinals win 27-24.

  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.

Ravens (-4) at Titans

Cowherd is taking the Ravens with a -4 spread. He’s particularly impressed by Lamar Jackson’s performance, stating that Jackson was the highest-graded quarterback last week against the Steelers, according to PFF. Cowherd also notes that the Ravens’ offense ranks third in big plays this season. On the other side, he mentions that the Titans have a struggling offensive line and Ryan Tannehill is having a poor year. His final score prediction: Ravens win 27-21.

Seahawks at Bengals (-2.5)

For this matchup, Cowherd is going with the Bengals at a -2.5 spread. He cites Joe Burrow’s recent high completion percentage and argues that the Seahawks’ wins against the Giants and Panthers don’t indicate strong performance. According to Cowherd, the Bengals are underrated and will prove their worth this week. His final score prediction: Bengals win 26-20 over Seattle.

Vikings at Bears (+3)

Cowherd picks the Bears with a +3 spread. He believes the lousy, rainy, windy weather will favor the Bears, who are more run-dependent. With Justin Jefferson out for the Vikings and the Bears’ Justin Fields showing promise, Cowherd expects a Bears win. His final score prediction: Bears win 24-21.

Saints (-1.5) at Texans

Choosing the Saints at a -1.5 spread, Cowherd is focused on their defense. He mentions Dennis Allen as an excellent defensive coach and notes that the Saints have the best passer rating allowed in the NFL. His final score prediction: Saints win on the road 24-20.

Cowboys at Chargers (+2.5)

Cowherd is taking the Chargers with a +2.5 spread. He mentions that Austin Ekeler’s return will strengthen the Chargers’ short-yardage game. He also points out the decline in the Cowboys’ defense since Trayvon Diggs’ injury. His final score prediction: Chargers win 28-24.
