Colin Cowherd should be thankful that the windshield is much bigger than the rearview mirror looking to Week 11 of the 2022 NFL season.

Cowherd had a rough Week 10 for his Blazin’ 5 picks with a 1-4 record, which he hopes to put behind himself and get back on track with what has been a winning season so far.

All season long, Cowherd releases his Blazin’ 5 Fridays at 1 p.m. ET on his show, The Herd. Once he makes his picks, we publish them with other industry experts throughout PA and beyond.

If you don’t like Cowherd’s picks, you can read beyond them for other plays from the Barstool Sports Advisors, ESPN’s Erin Dolan and Eli Hershkovich of

Once you have your picks, PA sportsbooks are your place to get in on the action. Best of luck!

Week 11 picks from The Herd

“I love my picks this week. Here we go, Blazin’ 5, right now. Are you ready to go?”

Washington Commanders at Houston Texans (+3)

Cowherd pick: Texans

Final score prediction: Texans 28, Commanders 24

Cowherd said:

“I’m gonna take the Texans +3. It’s actually an easy pick. Davis Mills, the quarterback at home, has been really good. Nineteen touchdowns, six picks, 100 passer rating. And Dameon Pierce has been a find at running back. [He] Leads the NFL in broken tackles and leads all rookies in rushing yards.

“The Commanders are off a highly emotional win on a short week [and] now travel. Eighty-one plays for the Commanders. Their offense this season is a BB gun. Taylor Heinicke, I know you all love him. On third and fourth down, [he] completes 59% of his throws. I think the Texans win straight out. Take the three points. Texans win 28-24.”

Final Score: Commanders 23, Texans 10

Did Colin Cowherd Win? No

Las Vegas Raiders (+3) at Denver Broncos

Cowherd pick: Raiders

Final score prediction: Raiders 24, Broncos 17

Cowherd said:

“I love the Raiders +3. Listen, Derek Carr and Davante Adams, the last two weeks, they are working. OK? It’s working. That’s not the issue. They’re first in targets [and] receptions. And [with] touchdown receptions, they’re tied for second.

“The Broncos’ offense is terrible. It’s the worst in the league, second-worst on third down. Now, Jerry Jeudy is out. This reminds me of those Arizona-Seattle games where Seattle was the better team, and Vegas gave them points. The Raiders are losing close [games]; the Broncos are awful. I’m going to take the Raiders +3 to win straight out, 24-17.”

Final Score: Raiders 22, Broncos 16

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Dallas Cowboys (-1.5) at Minnesota Vikings

Cowherd pick: Cowboys

Final score prediction: Cowboys 30, Vikings 27

Cowherd said:

“Like it? I love it! Favorite pick of the week, I’ll take the Cowboys—their offense in back-to-back games [has] 400-plus total yards. Tony Pollard, now averaging 6 yards per carry, leads all running backs in the NFL.

“Yes, we know their defense is great, but this is a big game. Kirk Cousins against the Cowboys has been terrible, 2-8. They’re a team, Minnesota, each of their last seven wins have come by one possession. That is incredibly random. If you keep winning one-possession games, eventually, you lose them. Love the Cowboys to win straight out, 30-27.”

Final Score: Cowboys 40, Vikings 3

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers

Cowherd pick: Bengals

Final score prediction: Bengals 28, Steelers 23

Cowherd said:

“The hook scares people. Not me. I’m gonna take the Bengals, despite -3.5. They’re coming off a bye, the number-one NFL scoring offense since Week 6. Burrow, in fact, since Week 2, has been number two in the league in completions, passer rating and touchdown-to-interception [ratio].

“The Steelers, meanwhile, Kenny Pickett? Let’s be honest. This year, two touchdowns and eight picks. Last week, he looked better because he came off a bye. This week, the better quarterback gets the bye. Kenny Pickett doesn’t have prep time, Minkah Fitzpatrick may not play, [and] I think this could get ugly. It is a complete mismatch [for the] quarterbacks here. Bengals win here and cover, 28-23.”

Final Score: Bengals 37, Steelers 30

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers (+5)

Cowherd pick: Chargers

Final score prediction: Chiefs 31, Chargers 30

Cowherd said:

“I don’t trust the Chargers much, but I’m gonna take the Chargers =5. The Chiefs are falling apart. Justin Herbert and the Chargers have played very well in this matchup, and they’re finally getting healthy. Keenan Allen, Mike Williams. Herbert against the Chiefs in his career, 13 touchdowns [and] only three picks. 

“The Chiefs defense, second-worst on the back end in the league, and they are falling apart. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman [are] out. They say Valdez-Scantling will play, he’s not 100%.

“So, I get a healthy team at home that is desperate, playing with ultimate urgency. Meanwhile, you’ve got the Chiefs here. Denver’s a mess, Chargers aren’t playing well, Raiders are a bit of a mess. I like the Chargers, this goes down to the last play where I’ll take [Patrick] Mahomes, but I think it’s 31-30. I’m absolutely taking the points and the Chargers here.”

Final Score: Chiefs 30, Chargers 27

NFL Week 11 Expert Picks Roundup

Barstool Advisors

The Barstool Advisors’ crew of Stu Feiner, Dan ”Big Cat” Katz and Jerry “The Kid” Thornton publishes picks throughout the week on Twitter, including a slate of “mortal locks” each Sunday morning.

We list those “mortal locks” Sunday morning, but please remember that such picks are only locks by name. The crew went 2-1 in Week 10 but has had several weeks with losing records in the recent past.

Week 11 picks:

  • Feiner: Detroit Lions (+3) at New York Giants – Win
  • Big Cat: Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns Over 47 – Win
  • Jerry The Kid: Buffalo Bills (-9) vs. Cleveland Browns – Loss

Erin Dolan

ESPN’s Erin Dolan got an “early start” to her picks, posting an early play on Thursday morning for the game later that night between the Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans. She added to her card on Sunday morning.

  • Aaron Rodgers Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns – Win
  • Nick Chubb Over 74.5 Rushing Yards – Loss
  • Cordarrelle Patterson Anytime TD Score – Win
  • Matt Ryan Anytime Interception – Loss
  • Game to avoid: Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings

Dolan provides more than just picks, too. Earlier in the week, she dove into whether or not the Vikings are a legit team. Her analysis has been on point all season long and is worth checking out.

Eli Hershkovich

While Eli Hershkovich has been a reliable sweat all year, he had as rough of a Week 10 as Cowherd, failing to post a win on his published picks. His crew at also went a combined 0-5 on their weekly Posted plays and hope to rebound this Sunday. 

He’s also off to a tough start in Week 11, losing a spread wager on Thursday Night Football.

  • Green Bay Packers (-3) vs. Tennessee Titans – Loss
  • Indianapolis Colts (+6.5) vs. Philadelphia Eagles – Win

That said, Hershkovich’s season record is still well above .500, and he only publishes picks that he personally makes.
