14th week NFL The season kicked off Thursday night with a thriller, but there are still plenty of games ahead. Colin Cowherd I have a few picks to share.
Cowherd shared his predictions for the weekend during Friday’s “Blazin’ 5” segmentherd.”
Below are Cowherd’s top picks, presented with odds and win totals FOXbet.
Blazin’ 5: Fade the Patriots, Pick the Lions and the Steelers
Colin Cowherd shares his Week 14 Blazin’ 5 picks.
Minnesota Vikings and detroit lions (-2)
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Lions -2 (Lions win 28-24)
Colin’s thoughts: They have won 4 of their last 5 matches. Jared Goff The longest stretch of his career without an interception is four games. Amon La St. Brown, Jamal Williams… they are playing well and they are very good at home. Meanwhile, the Vikings’ defense has tanked since Week 10. Everywhere is in terrible condition. Kirk Cousins isn’t the same guy on the street. He threw his seven TDs and his seven interceptions.
Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers (-2)
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Steelers -2 (Steelers win 24-20)
Colin’s thoughts: The Steelers, who have a winning streak for the first time this season, are 4-1 when TJ Watt plays. They haven’t had a freebie in a month… 4 games. That’s a big thing for Kenny Pickett. The Ravens are offensively broken.You go back to 2020 with a game with Lamar [Jackson] Not played. 1-5. He’s the edge they need. They’re also very turnover-prone—he’s five turnovers in the last three games.
Lamar Jackson’s injury is devastating
Nick Wright thinks Lamar Jackson’s recent injuries hurt the Ravens more than the quarterback, even if Jackson was in his contract year.
cleveland browns (+5.5) and Cincinnati Bengals
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Browns +5.5. (The Bengals won him 28-27)
Colin’s thoughts: Kevin Stefanski is 5-0 against Cincinnati. This team runs soccer. With consecutive games of 170+ rushing yards, this year he has eight games with 170+ rushing yards, the most in the NFL. Their offense this season has been surprisingly good when it comes to big plays and rushes. Joe Burrow 0-4 against the Browns. It’s a split game. Tee Higgins injured. These division games always feel close. I still think Cincinnati will win, but I’m going to take points in the division game against Cleveland.
carolina panthers at (+4.5) Seattle Seahawks
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Panthers +4.5 (Panthers won 24-23)
Colin’s thoughts: The Panthers are off bye-byes, their defense is healthy and they are playing well. They held opponents to his 15 points or less in his 3rd straight game. If you go after week 10 and look at the Seahawks defense, it’s bad and getting worse. Carolina is good and getting better. The Seahawks were lucky enough to beat the Rams with two of his three losses. Kenneth Walker is out and his backup deejay Dallas is injured. They can’t control his line of scrimmage and need Geno his Smith to throw without a run his game.
new england patriots and Arizona Cardinals (+2.5)
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Cardinals +2.5 (Cardinals won 27-20)
Colin’s thoughts: good bye, Kyler Murray I am getting healthier. deandre hopkins and Hollywood Brown will play in their second game together. By the way, the Patriots’ offense is limited, with BB Gun starting in Week 7. This year, if the opponent gets 20 points or more, 0 wins and 6 losses. The Patriots’ offense has averaged 4.9 yards per play since Week 7. There are 7 touchdowns after Week 7. that’s it! McJones has been sacked 20 times in his last five games. So they have no weapons on the outside. The offensive line retreated. Mac Jones has lost his confidence. Arizona is at home. I’m going to take Arizona. This New England team isn’t good. We might need Baker Mayfield.
