Cowherd shared his predictions for the weekend in his “Blazin’ 5” section on Friday’s “The Herd.”
Listed here are Cowherd’s prime picks, accompanied by odds and win totals as introduced by FOX Wager.
Blazin’ 5: Fade Patriots, decide Lions and Steelers
Colin Cowherd shares his Blazin’ 5 picks for Week 14.
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions (-2)
Cowherd’s decide, rating prediction: Lions -2 (Lions win 28-24)
Colin’s ideas: They’ve gained 4 of their final 5 video games. Jared Goff is within the longest stretch of his profession with out an interception — 4 video games. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jamaal Williams … they’re enjoying effectively, they usually’re excellent at house. The Vikings protection, in the meantime, has gone into the tank since Week 10. It is terrible in all places. Kirk Cousins shouldn’t be the identical man on the street. He is thrown seven TDs and 7 interceptions.
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (-2)
Cowherd’s decide, rating prediction: Steelers -2 (Steelers win 24-20)
Colin’s ideas: Coming off back-to-back wins for the primary time this season, the Steelers are 4-1 when T.J. Watt performs. They haven’t had a giveaway in a month … 4 video games. That is large for Kenny Pickett. The Ravens are damaged offensively. You return to 2020 in video games the place Lamar [Jackson] would not play, they’re 1-5. He’s the sting they want. They’ve additionally develop into very turnover inclined — 5 turnovers within the final three video games.
Lamar Jackson’s damage is devastating
Nick Wright believes Lamar Jackson’s newest damage hurts the Ravens greater than the quarterback even with Jackson in a contract 12 months.
Cleveland Browns (+5.5) at Cincinnati Bengals
Cowherd’s decide, rating prediction: Browns +5.5. (Bengals win 28-27)
Colin’s ideas: Kevin Stefanski is 5-0 towards Cincinnati. This staff is operating the soccer — back-to-back video games with 170-plus dashing yards and eight video games this 12 months with 170-plus dashing yards, which is probably the most within the NFL. Their offense this season, in relation to large performs and dashing, is surprisingly good. Joe Burrow is 0-4 towards the Browns. It is a divisional sport. Tee Higgins is damage. These divisional video games all the time really feel shut. I nonetheless assume Cincinnati wins, however I will take the factors in a divisional sport with Cleveland.
Carolina Panthers (+4.5) at Seattle Seahawks
Cowherd’s decide, rating prediction: Panthers +4.5 (Panthers win 24-23)
Colin’s ideas: The Panthers are coming off a bye and their protection is wholesome and enjoying effectively. They’ve held opponents to fifteen factors or fewer in three straight video games. Should you go since Week 10 and take a look at the Seahawks protection, it is unhealthy and getting worse. Carolina’s is nice and getting higher. The Seahawks have misplaced two of three and had been fortunate to beat the Rams. Kenneth Walker is out, and DeeJay Dallas, his backup, is damage. They won’t be able to manage the road of scrimmage, they usually’ll want Geno Smith to throw with no run sport.
New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals (+2.5)
Cowherd’s decide, rating prediction: Cardinals +2.5 (Cardinals win 27-20)
Colin’s ideas: Coming off a bye, Kyler Murray is getting more healthy. DeAndre Hopkins and Hollywood Brown will play in simply their second sport collectively. By the way in which, the Patriots offense was restricted, and it has been a BB gun since Week 7. They’re 0-6 this 12 months when the opponent scores 20-plus factors. The Patriots offense since Week 7 is averaging 4.9 yards per play. Since Week 7, they’ve seven touchdowns. That is it! Mac Jones within the final 5 video games has been sacked 20 occasions. So, they do not have weapons on the skin. The offensive line has regressed. Mac Jones has misplaced confidence. Arizona is at house. I will take Arizona. This New England staff shouldn’t be good. Possibly they want Baker Mayfield.
