  • Drew Lock has stabilized the last month, and DEN

Cowherd’s Prediction: Denver 26-23

Washington (+5.5) vs. Seahawks

Seattle is 3-6 ATS in the last nine games.

  • Seattle’s OL is poor, and WAS has a great DL.

Cowherd’s Prediction: Seattle 21-20


Eagles vs. Cardinals (-6.5)

  • Philly ran the ball well last week, the Saints were guessing though.
  • Arizona is used to playing against an athletic quarterback, used to Jalen Hurts.
  • Philadelphia’s defense only has four picks all year, Kyle will be comfortable.
