Colin Cowherd found out that even puppy love hurts. In Week 3, he was in love with underdogs. But it was an unrequited love and he had another losing week (2-3).

For Week 4, he refrained from using his “like it, I love it” cliche to express his adulation. Instead he took a more measured approach. He even added a bonus pick so maybe he can finally hit .500.

Colin Cowherd’s 2021 Week 4 NFL picks

The Herd with Colin Cowherd is a sports talk radio show on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1. Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Fridays on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST.

Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys (-4.5)

Colin’s pick: Cowboys

Colin’s final score: Cowboys 27, Panthers 20

Cowherd said:

“I’m on the opposite side of the wise guys. They (the Cowboys) are a Tom Brady game-winning drive away from being perfect. They outplayed the Buccaneers. The Cowboys are +5 in turnover differential – the best in the league. Dak Prescott’s last six home starts – 117 passer rating. Sam Darnold has been two quarterbacks this year. When it’s on script with Matt Rhule he’s great. In the second half he is literally half the quarterback and his completion percentage and his passer rating plummets.”

Actual final score: Cowboys 36, Panthers 28

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins (-2)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 27, Colts 23

Cowherd said:

“Jacoby Brisset is better than Tua. They are going to win this game. Carson Wentz,  last seven starts he’s 0-7 and he’s completed 57% of his throws. The Colts are falling apart. You can run the ball on their defense. They are struggling everywhere with health, accuracy, and stopping the run.”

Actual final score: Colts 27, Dolphins 17

Did Cowherd win? No

Cleveland Browns vs. Minnesota Vikings (+2.5)

Colin’s pick:Vikings

Colin’s final score: Vikings 27, Browns 26

Cowherd said:

“The Vikings should be 3-0. They are an underdog at home getting 2.5. This is not an indictment on Cleveland but they are injured. Their defense isn’t right yet. I know everybody likes to roll their eyes at Kirk Cousins, but when is the last bad game he’s had? He’s had 17 consecutive games with a 90+ passer rating. They are at home where he is always better. I’m not sure the line is right and until I’m sure Cleveland has their defense right against a legitimate offense, I’ll take the VIkings.”

Actual final score: Browns 14, Vikings 7

Did Cowherd win? No

New York Giants (+7) vs. New Orleans Saints

Colin’s pick: Giants

Colin’s final score: Giants 27, Saints 26

Cowherd said:

“One of my favorite bets of the weekend. Daniel Jones is no longer throwing the ball over. One interception in his last nine games. How is the Saints offense giving up seven or eight points? They can’t move the ball. They are almost last or next-to-last in yards, passing, and yards-per-play. Jameis Winston has the fewest passing yards of any quarterback who has started three games. I get a touchdown with a Giants team that under Joe Judge that his blown out one time.”

Actual final score: Giants 27, Saints 21

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos (+1)

Colin’s pick:Broncos

Colin’s final score: Broncos 27, Ravens 24

Cowherd said:

“Possibly a blowout. I think the Broncos might blow out Baltimore. The Ravens are struggling on third down. Lamar has five turnovers this year. Not healthy. Denver’s defense is on fire. They are first in points-per-game allowed and opponents passer rating. They are second in yards-per-game allowed. Teddy Bridgewater is making plays. They are banged up at wide reciever but they are deep enough at skill positions I think they put up some big points. I don’t love what I’m seeing with Baltimore right now.”

Actual final score: Ravens 23, Broncos 7

Did Cowherd win? No

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5)

Colin’s pick: Chargers 

Cowherd said:

“The hook number’s 3.5. The wise guys probably like the Raiders. This is going to be a wild, high scoring game. Since Week 2 last year, Justin Herbert leads the league in completions, he is tied for second for 300-yard games and is third for most pass yards. The Chargers are 6-1 in their last 7.”

Week 4 record: 2-3

Colin Cowherd 2021 Blazin’ 5 overall record: 6-9
