Colin Cowherd’s NFL ‘Blazin 5’ For Week 3 (Video at Bottom of Page)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 2 Weeks: 7-3
Ravens at Chiefs (SPREAD: KC -5)
"I'm betting the number here, I'm going to take Kansas City -5. Baltimore's offensive line and running game is good enough to control the clock and win but I like the number here. I get the best offense, the most creative play-designer in Andy Reid, and Arrowhead is a tough place to play. I'm predicting Chiefs 30, Ravens 23."
Colin’s Pick: Chiefs (-5)
Lions at Eagles (SPREAD: PHIL -6)
"I'm going to take Detroit +6 in a potential upset here. Philadelphia had to cancel practice this week, and their timing was already not good against Atlanta. Alshon Jeffery and Desean Jackson have been hurt, and they've also had defensive injuries. This is a talented Eagles team that is playing a Detroit team that has covered four of its last six games. We look at the Lions as a mess, but when they lose, they lose close. I'm going to take the six points. I'm predicting Eagles 27, Lions 23, but this will be closer than you think."
Colin Pick: Lions (+6)
Giants at Bucs (SPREAD: TB -6)
"I like the Giants getting the points and I like an outright win for the Giants. Daniel Jones is going to give this team an energy boost and I think this team had gotten very stale. Daniel was absolutely terrific in the preseason. The Giants are 0-2 but they have put up 420 total yards per game and are moving the ball. The Bucs are adrift and have scored 20 or fewer points in five of their last six games and are one of four teams yet to have over 300 yards in a game. I'm taking Giants 24, Bucs 23.
Colin’s Pick: Giants (+6)
Steelers at 49ers (SPREAD: SF -6.5)
“The Steelers are getting 6.5 points, that is way too many. The 49ers are incredibly young, which means they looked great last week and could come crashing down. Pittsburgh without Ben Big is 10-6 the last 16 games he hasn't played, that's a playoff team. Charlie Batch had a winning record, Dennis Dixon, Landry Jones, Michael Vick... This is a must-win game for the Steelers. I think it's Niners 27, Steelers 26, but that's way too many points to give the significantly better offensive line and the desperate team.
Colin’s Pick: (Steelers +6.5)
Rams at Browns (SPREAD: LAR -3)
"Cleveland's 'Did Not Practice' list this week looked like the third floor of a hospital. Baker Mayfield has been sacked eight times and the weakness of this team is the offensive line... Aaron Donald has yet to get a sack and is going to get spicy. The Browns have the most penalties and penalty yards in the league. Mayfield has been great versus Cincinnati, but beyond that with his porous offensive line, he's a 5-8 quarterback with 22 touchdowns and 18 picks. Sean McVay might be the best coach in the NFL and Freddie Kitchens might not even be a good coach; this is a coaching mismatch. I'm taking the Rams to win and cover, 33-24.
Colin's Pick: Rams (-3)
