Herd Hierarchy: Playoff-bound Chargers, Packers leap in Colin's Prime 10 of Week 17

Herd Hierarchy: Playoff-bound Chargers, Packers leap in Colin's Top 10 of Week 17

Backwards hat Colin Cowherd reveals his high 10 groups heading into Week 17.

10. Inexperienced Bay Packers (Final week: unranked)

Total file: 7-8 | Final week: Packers received 26-20 vs. Miami Dolphins

Colin's ideas: "The Packers [are] on a three-game wining streak, third comeback win of 10-plus factors — that is the perfect and probably the most in Aaron Rodgers' period. I have been important of Matt LaFleur. I do not assume he is incapable, however I am unsure he is nearly as good because the media makes him out to be. Properly, Aaron and Matt LaFleur are 15-0 in December, so it counts."

Championship odds: +5000

Up subsequent: Vikings @ Packers (4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

Minnesota Vikings


Inexperienced Bay Packers


9. Los Angeles Chargers (Final week: unranked)

Total file: 9-6 | Final week: Chargers received 20-3 vs. Indianapolis Colts

Colin's ideas: "They've received 4 of 5. Hear, their protection with a defensive head coach is lastly enjoying effectively. They've had 13 sacks within the final three video games, and right here comes Bosa, who's purported to return this week. All you need to do for Justin Herbert is play respectable protection, and he wins. He is 18-4 when the Chargers maintain opponents to fewer than 27 factors. So after they play common protection, Justin Herbert wins."

Championship odds: +2500

Up subsequent: Rams @ Chargers (4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

Los Angeles Rams


Los Angeles Chargers


8. Jacksonville Jaguars (Final week: 8)

Total file: 7-8 | Final week: Jaguars received 19-3 vs. New York Jets

Colin's ideas: "I believe it is an actual soccer staff. I believe Trevor Lawrence is a star. He is the perfect quarterback within the NFL passer ranking [wise] since Week 9. Huge, tall, strikes. He has the most important improve ever in passer ranking one yr to the second. They're on a three-game successful streak. They do not know what they do not know. They're younger. In the event that they do make the playoffs, they seem to be a one-and-done, however he has develop into with Doug Pederson the quarterback I believed he could be."

Championship odds: +4500

Up subsequent: Jaguars @ Texans (1:00 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

Jacksonville Jaguars


Houston Texans


7. Minnesota Vikings (Final week: 10)

Total file: 12-3 | Final week: Vikings received 27-24 vs. New York Giants

Colin's ideas: "Kirk Cousins is 11-0 in one-score video games. That's simply insane. If Dan Marino was 11-0 in one-score video games, that might be insane. He is enjoying with confidence. The final three weeks, [he] leads the NFL in passer ranking. They have lots of issues I like: a succesful quarterback, an offensive coach, a star receiver. All of us type of understand this isn't going to be a Tremendous Bowl-winning staff, however they're enjoyable. It is an excellent metropolis that loves its soccer, and so they've obtained a heck of a staff."

Championship odds: +1700

Up subsequent: Vikings @ Packers (1:00 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

Minnesota Vikings


Inexperienced Bay Packers


6. Philadelphia Eagles (Final week: 2)

Total file: 13-2 | Final week: Eagles misplaced 40-34 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Colin's ideas: "They aren't a top-five staff with out Lane Johnson however their protection has six-plus sacks in 4 straight video games. That's lots of sacks. The D-Line, actually good. They will keep in video games. Cross your fingers on Jalen Hurts coming again."

Championship odds: +450

Up subsequent: Saints @ Eagles (1:00 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

New Orleans Saints


Philadelphia Eagles


5. Dallas Cowboys (Final week: 7)

Total file: 11-4 | Final week: Cowboys received 40-34 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Colin's ideas: "They're 7-2 since Dak returned. They've scored 25-plus [points] in eight straight video games. All of us thought they'd carry on OBJ; it hasn't harm ‘em. They’re doing an excellent job offensively. Now, Dak has 11 picks since coming back from harm. That is probably the most by any quarterback since Week 7. It's a little regarding, and in large spots I do not belief Mike McCarthy, however we have got to be honest right here. They remind me lots of the Chargers: nice particular person gamers, [but] not fairly buttoned as much as be a closing 4 staff. However Dallas they will pop you. They are a heavyweight with a punch. I do not know what their chin is, however they seem to be a heavyweight with a punch."

Championship odds: +1100

Up subsequent: Cowboys @ Titans (8:15 p.m. ET Thursday, Amazon)

Dallas Cowboys


Tennessee Titans


4. Buffalo Payments (Final week: 5)

Total file: 12-3 | Final week: Payments received 35-13 vs. Chicago Bears

Colin's ideas: "This is the factor concerning the Payments that worries me: 24 giveaways this yr. Solely the Colts have extra. You are not beating Kansas Metropolis and Cincinnati when you're giving the ball away two and 3 times a recreation. Now, they're on a six-game successful streak. There's a lot I like. I just like the house owners. I just like the GM. I just about just like the coach. I like the quarterback. Josh Allen, although, has had 5 a number of interception video games this yr; that's the most within the NFL. I believe you may get away with that within the NFC. I don't assume you may get away with that within the AFC."

Championship odds: +333

Up subsequent: Payments @ Bengals (8:30 p.m. ET Monday, ESPN)

Buffalo Payments


Cincinnati Bengals


3. San Francisco 49ers (Final week: 4)

Total file: 11-4 | Final week: 49ers received 37-20 vs. Washington Commanders

Colin's ideas: "I've questions on Brock Purdy, too, however they've an eight-game successful streak. They've allowed 20 or fewer factors in eight straight video games. Do not take heed to anyone: That is probably the most gifted roster within the league. They've a Professional Bowler in every single place: nook, security, two at linebacker, rush finish. They're nice. This staff is loaded. And Brock Purdy, as I stated a month in the past, he is adequate to win a number of playoffs video games. Can he go to Philadelphia and win a playoff recreation? I am unsure, however this staff is completely stacked."

Championship odds: +650

Up subsequent: 49ers @ Raiders (4:05 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

San Francisco 49ers


Las Vegas Raiders


2. Kansas Metropolis Chiefs (Final week: 3)

Total file: 12-3 | Final week: Chiefs received 24-10 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Colin's ideas: "It is the perfect offense, the scariest offense. They've extra touchdowns passes, 37, than touchdowns passes allowed, 31. And once more, they've rebuilt a protection, O-Line, rebuilding receivers. Now, they are not as electrical as they had been with Tyreek Hill. So I don't imagine this staff is similar type of staff that may path 24-0 to a playoff-level staff like Houston a number of years in the past and are available again. But it surely's Mahomes, it is Andy Reid, Steve Spagnuolo dials up good playoff defenses."

Championship odds: +425

Up subsequent: Broncos @ Chiefs (1:00 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

Denver Broncos


Kansas Metropolis Chiefs


1. Cincinnati Bengals (Final week: 1)

Total file: 11-4 | Final week: Bengals received 22-18 vs. New England Patriots

Colin's ideas: "The true key to Cincinnati is not Ja'Marr Chase. It is not Joe Mixon. It is Joe Burrow plus this: They're certainly one of two groups to have the identical beginning offensive line in every of the primary 15 video games this season. So the important thing with Cincinnati now [is that] Burrow's not getting hit. Burrow has lots of time. They have two working backs if one goes down, a number of receivers if one goes down. That is the way you construct an NFL staff."

Championship odds: +850

Up subsequent: Payments @ Bengals (8:15 p.m. ET Monday, ESPN)

Buffalo Payments


Cincinnati Bengals
