Blazin 5: Texans, Vikings highlight Colin’s Week 1 pick
Colin Cowherd shares the first Blazin’ 5 pick of Week 1 of the NFL season.
Below are Cowherd’s predictions, along with the odds and win totals offered by FOX Bet.
Cleveland Browns with the Carolina Panthers
Colin’s thoughts: “I like Baker Mayfield playing his former teammates at home. First of all, the Panthers had the most lead in the NFL last year with 10. They played a lot. Sam Darnold made too many mistakes.Their defense is great — I said it all year.They had the third-lowest yardage all year. It’s against Jacoby Brissett, who lost his starting center.. Slow. Carolina, in a row, had my favorite draft. Cleveland uses a career-average backup. Baker has a history of being inspired by individual games. I’m going to take the Panthers and Baker, 27-23.”
Philadelphia Eagles of the Detroit Lions
Colin’s thoughts: “The Lions are 3-3 in their last six games. Jared Goff has completed a 69% throw, 11 TDs and two picks as he settles into the end of the year. They have two of the best tackles. Football — I love their tackles. And the Eagles failed to reach a quarterback last year — second fewest sacks. Detroit is an inspirational football team, not a great team, but they are dogs Stay home like. Dan Campbell, if nothing else, great motivation. I’m going to take the Lions to win one of the funniest games of the weekend. “
Indianapolis Colts vs Houston Texans
Colin’s thoughts: “Take the Texans plus 7. Davis Mills was good last year — you just don’t see him play. The Colts are on an eight-game losing streak in the season opener. They’re at different quarterbacks and I don’t really have a No.2 receiver.I think the Colts will win the division but they’re not aggressively dynamic.They shut down Jonathan.Taylor, and there’s a limit to what they can do.I are going to take the Texans in points, but the Colts will win by a narrow margin.”
Washington Commanders Jacksonville Jaguars
Colin’s thoughts: “I’m taking the Jaguars plus 2.5 and I think they’ll outright win. First of all, they’ve spent over $300 million on free agency. Spending that kind of money on free agency.” The team usually improves, and they got Trevor Lawrence as the offensive coach.They have tight end Ed Ingram, wide receiver Zay Jones and wide receiver Christian Kirk. , upgraded the offensive line. Carson Wentz — a complete mess in this franchise [Washington]It was another quarterback and he didn’t have a great camp. There was controversy, and the Commanders’ defense struggled hard against passes last year. The Jaggs think he’s one of the surprise teams in the league this year. They’re not great, but they’re going to be real threats in that department week after week, with him beating the Commander 28-20. ”
Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Green Bay Packers
Colin’s thoughts: “I don’t know how [the Vikings] Score points at home. They had the most one-possession games last year, but that was due to a number of injuries and a quarterback who didn’t feel supported. Kirk Cousins was one of only two quarterbacks to have had 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 picks. The Packers usually excel at home, but last year he was only a 5-4 roadster and has struggled in Minnesota for years. Allen Lazard injured. Christian Watson injured. Tight end him Robert Tonyan is out of his ACL. The Packers are devastated. They don’t have the No. 1 receiver. Ultimately, this receive his crew is delicious, but I don’t know Game 1 with a new coach. I think Vikings should be favored. I will take them on 26-23. ”
