The NFL playoff picture is complete, and Super Wild Card Weekend is right around the corner.
The action kicks off on Saturday as the Seattle Seahawks travel to San Francisco to battle the 49ers at 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX. Super Wild Card Weekend concludes with a much-anticipated matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 8:15 p.m. ET Monday.
On Friday’s “The Herd,” Colin Cowherd shared his Super Wild Card Weekend picks in his latest “Blazin’ 5” roundup.
Let’s get to it.
Blazin’ 5: Super Wild Card Round Weekend
Colin Cowherd explains why he likes the Cowboys, Bills and Jaguars to cover and win this weekend.
No. 7 Seattle Seahawks (+9.5) at No. 2 San Francisco 49ers (Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX)
Cowherd’s pick, score prediction: Seahawks +9.5, (49ers win 24-16)
Cowherd’s thoughts: “This is my favorite pick. I’ll take Seattle … to cover. Only one of their losses has been by 10-plus points over the last 15 weeks, and that was against the [Kansas City] Chiefs. … They can pick up four and five yards at a time. The weather is gonna be rainy and windy. Do not expect an aerial circus by either team. Kenneth Walker — Seattle is 6-1 when he gets 15 carries this year. They’re gonna rely on him in awful weather, and rookie quarterback Brock Purdy — six career starts. Rookie quarterbacks have five straight playoff losses, 1-8 in their last nine (games). I think he plays a little tight. … This is a rivalry game. … I think it’s choppy, ugly [and] low-scoring.”
San Francisco 49ers
No. 4 Jacksonville Jaguars (+ 2.5) vs. No. 5 Los Angeles Chargers (Saturday, 8:15 p.m. ET)
