Cowherd Makes Conference Championship Picks
Colin Cowherd shares picks for the AFC and NFC Championships ahead of Sunday’s game on “The Herd.”
No. 2 San Francisco 49ers First place philadelphia eagles (-2.5) (Sunday 3pm FOX and FOX Sports App)
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Eagles -2.5, Eagles win 28-23
Thoughts of a cowherd:”The youngest quarterback matchup in conference championship game history — Jalen Hurts 24 hours and brock purdy I’m going to take the Eagles at -2.5. Here’s why. They have a better offensive line and are number one in the league.right tackle lane johnson and center Jason Kelce We didn’t allow sacks all year round. Nevertheless, Nick Bosa When Arik ArmsteadIt hurts to have a few more pockets.
“The Eagles’ defense is also the best in terms of improvement” front and back end. Jalen Hurts, I know what he gives me. In his last 20 starts, he’s 18-2, making 65% of his passes and has a passer rating of about 100. Those are very consistent numbers over his last 20 starts. i know exactly what i am getting. Good team, bad team, it doesn’t matter.
“The Niners are worried. The O-Line could really struggle against the Eagles front line. The Niners only scored one touchdown in a divisional round game against the Cowboys. They scored a point, too.” Giving up. Nine red zone trips and just .4 touchdowns. They settle too often for field goals.
“The Niners’ defense has also been weak overall. They have allowed 13 40-plus plays this season, which is the third most in the league when the playoffs are included. They are more comfortable and experienced at home. It’s a close game. I think they hit some deeper balls and big plays. It’s eye candy and I think it’s a lot of fun to watch.
No. 3 Cincinnati Bengals at (+1.5) No. 1 Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday 6:30 p.m. ET)
Cowherd’s Pick, Score Prediction: Bengals +1.5, Bengals win 26-24
Thoughts of a cowherd:”The Bengals are on a 10-game winning streak. Joe Burrow Burning. 13 consecutive wins in December and January. The biggest stars in the game on the Perimeter Bengals have it. Jamal Chase has 9 touchdowns in their last 9 games.In fact, Jammer Chase and tea higgins I ate chiefs. They have totaled over 200 yards per game in his last three games against Kansas City.
“The Chiefs defense is weak in the back end. They allowed the most touchdown passes in the league this year. Charvarius WardIt’s Niner now.? That’s what happens when you pay a quarterback big bucks.
“Also, after injuring my ankle last week, Patrick Mahomes Did not complete a pass or attempt a pass outside of pocket. Right now, Mahomes from out of pocket is the best quarterback in the league, perhaps all at once. Even if I force him to keep it in his pocket, he’s still fine. He’s still really good. But he’s not spectacular.
“I’m going to go with Jammer Chase’s big play ability, a better back end… no one has a better second half defense.”
