Blazin’ 5: Saints upset Tom Brady among Colin Cowherd’s five picks for Week 2
Colin Cowherd gives out five picks against the spread for Week 2 in the NFL.
Here’s his “Blazin’ 5.”
Washington Commanders @ Detroit Lions (-1.5) – 1 p.m. ET FOX
Colin’s pick, score prediction: Lions -1.5 (Lions win 27-21).
Colin’s thoughts: “They’re 8-2 against the spread in the last 10 games. They’re a good cover team. People forget that Jared Goff, at home at least in Detroit, has been great. He’s got a 97 passer rating and a 69% completion percentage. He’s a great home quarterback – doesn’t have a great arm but no wind inside.

New England Patriots @ Pittsburgh Steelers (+2.5) – 1 p.m. ET CBS
Colin’s pick, score prediction: Patriots -2.5 (Patriots win 24-20)
Colin’s thoughts: “First of all, the Patriots haven’t started 0-2 in 21 years. Beyond that, Bill Belichick has been really strong against Pittsburgh and Mike Tomlin. He holds them to about 18 points per game [in the last six meetings]. Mac Jones won six road games last season, don’t have to worry about that.
“What I do have to worry about is the Steelers. T.J. Watt out, Najee Harris not healthy, and let’s be honest Mitchell Trubisky, they got a lead [last week] and basically clung on to life. He averaged 5.1 yards per attempt with those receivers. This coaching staff doesn’t trust him as its quarterback. I think Belichick is going to own him.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (+2.5) – 1 p.m. ET FOX
Colin’s pick, score prediction: Saints +2.5 (Saints win 27-24)
Colin’s thoughts: “Tom…
