Colin Cowherd Blazin’ 5 2022 Week 4 NFL picks

“Here we go, Blazin’ 5 on a Friday! Dogs are barking!”

Jacksonville Jaguars (+6.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

Cowherd pick: Jaguars

Final score prediction: Eagles 27, Jaguars 26

Cowherd said:

“I’m gonna take the Jaguars +6.5. They’ve won back-to-back games by 20 points. Let’s be honest, this season, they’re top 10 in scoring offense, top five in most categories. They’ve only given it away once, they’re getting good protection, and the Eagles’ offense, as good as it is, has been shut out in the second half of their last two games.”

“So, it just seems like the number’s too big. I don’t think the market’s figured out quite yet that Jacksonville spent $300 million and went and got a bunch of good players. Upgraded severely at head coach. I think it’s too many points. I think it’s gonna go down to the end. I’ll have the Eagles winning 27-26. I gotta take 6.5 points here, it just makes too much sense to me.”

Final score: Eagles 29, Jaguars 21

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans (+5.5)

Cowherd pick: Texans

Final score prediction: Texans 27, Chargers 23

Cowherd said:

“Absolutely taking the Texans, at home, +5.5. They’ve held all three opponents to 23 points or less. Their defense is playing great, especially against the pass. Brandon Staley, the Chargers’ coach in 20 games with Justin Herbert, is 10-10.”

“Justin Herbert’s hurt. Keenan Allen’s hurt. Rashawn Slater’s out. Corey Linsley’s hurt. And the Chargers’ offense is one of only six teams without a rushing touchdown. Also, their defense, when you take out Bosa and Khalil Mack – and now Bosa’s out – doesn’t get to the quarterback.”

“Way too many points. Texans are feisty, I think the game is low scoring, I’m gonna take the upset here. I’m not even sure if it is an upset with all the injuries to the Chargers: 27-23 Houston.”

Final score: Chargers 34, Texans 24

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

New York Jets (+3) at Pittsburgh Steelers

Cowherd pick: Jets

Final score prediction: Jets 23, Steelers 21

Cowherd said:

“I wish I was getting 3.5 [points]. I’d like it a lot more, but Zach Wilson makes his debut. I’m gonna take the Jets here. Listen, Mike Tomlin as a favorite against the spread is 82-94-5 as a coach. And the Steelers without TJ Watt don’t have much of a pass rush. Their offense is a disaster. Now, they’ve had some extra time to prepare, but Zach Wilson has some tasty weapons here. I think they’re gonna score.”

“The Steelers are always most dangerous when they’re an underdog, especially in-division. This is an out-of-division game. I think I get a more talented quarterback. I think I get a little bit of a desperate team. I’m gonna take the Jets to win here 23-21. It won’t be pretty – Jet wins aren’t – but I like the Jets.”

Final score: Jets 24, Steelers 20

Did Colin Cowherd win? Yes

Denver Broncos (+2.5) at Las Vegas Raiders

Cowherd pick: Broncos

Final score prediction: Broncos 28, Raiders 23

Cowherd said:

“I think the Raiders are a mess. I’m taking Denver +2.5 – I have to here. Listen, the Broncos’ defense has been unbelievable. It’s No. 2 in the league. They’re good at everything. Pass rush, third down. This defense is outstanding. They’ve got two or three good corners, two or three pass rushers, excellent linebackers [and] a thumping safety.”

“The Raiders’ defense, meanwhile, is one of the worst in the league. Only team in the NFL that’s 0-3. And by the way, the teams that beat them, none of them have won a game. So, they’re losing to bad teams. I’m gonna take the Broncos to win here, get on the right track. Russell Wilson, I think he’s gonna run a little more now, move the sticks more, keep it away from Derek Carr: 28-23 Broncos.”

Final score: Raiders 32, Broncos 23

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

New England Patriots (+9.5) at Green Bay Packers

Cowherd pick: Patriots

Final score prediction: Patriots 24, Packers 23

Cowherd said:

“Upset of the week! I’m gonna take the Patriots +9.5. If Mac Jones plays, they win. I think he can play. If Brian Hoyer plays, I think they can cover the spread. First of all, this is a ridiculously big spread for two running teams. I mean, name the No. 1 receiver in this game if Jakobi Meyers doesn’t play. There isn’t a No. 1. I’m not sure there’s a No. 2 in this game. These are running teams.”

“And the Packers’ offense right now, five giveaways through the first three games. Aaron Rodgers averaging 228 yards passing – that’s a career low. They don’t score off-script in the second half at all, one touchdown. I think it’s a very close, low-scoring game. And if Mac Jones plays, I think you’re looking at a game that goes down to the last minute. 9.5 points? This isn’t college.”

“By the way, the No. 1 ranked corner in the NFL plays for the Patriots. The secondary is really good, their pass rush is decent. I’m gonna take the shock of the weekend, Patriots 24-23.”

Final score: Packers 27, Patriots 24
