Colin Cowherd Blazin’ 5 Week 16 NFL picks (Joy Taylor’s Favorite 5)

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.

Cleveland Browns (7-7) vs. Green Bay Packers (11-3)

“The Packers are great at home (6-0) and they are favored by 7.5 and I do think they will cover. The Browns are coming off a really bad COVID week and are getting a lot of people back. The Browns have been held to under 20 points in four of their last five games. This is a year where Baker has really struggled and Aaron Rodgers is leading the MVP race. This is a major mismatch.”

Indianapolis Colts (8-6) vs. Arizona Cardinals (10-4)

“The Colts lead NFL in +14 turnover differential and have the No. 1 scoring offense since Week 4 with 31.4. ppg. Jonathan Taylor has been the story of this team. The Cardinals who were tearing the league up are 3-4 in their last seven games and Kyler Murray has struggled since returning from injury.

Buffalo Bills (8-6) vs. New England Patriots (9-5)

“Belichick owns the Bills and the Patriots have the No. 2 scoring offense since Week 7. However, I do think this will a much more competitive game and look much more different than the one they played earlier in the season. I think the Bills need needs the game more than the Patriots. I think I’m going to go with Patriots -2 but I think it’s going to be a great matchup.”

Baltimore Ravens (8-6) vs. Bengals (8-6)

“The AFC North is wide open. The winner of this game will be first in the AFC North but the Ravens are coming off of three straight losses. I think this is the Bengals game and we don’t know what the situation is with Lamar Jackson so you are going to have to pay attention to that. I think this is the Bengals (-3) game.

Miami Dolphins (7-7)  vs. New Orlean Saints (7-7)

“I am excited for this. The Dolphins are on a six game winning streak. Tua is playing really well. The Saints are banged up and their top two quarterbacks are out. They are coming off a shutout of the Bucs. Their defense is incredible competitive.”

Cowherd’s Week 15 Blazin’ 5 record: 2-3
