There appears to be a pattern with Colin Cowherd‘s must-watch NFL games this season: They each feature quarterbacks with elite offensive weapons.
Let’s take a take a look at the games Cowherd refuses to miss this upcoming season:
Broncos-Seahawks, Pats vs. Raiders are Colin’s top NFL games to observe next season
Colin Cowherd reveals his top must-watch games for the 2022-23 season.
Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Rams (Week 1)
Colin’s thoughts: “In order that they raise the banner at SoFi. I bet you it’s half Bills fans. You get Josh Allen against Matt Stafford, AFC powerhouse favorites and NFC powerhouse favorites. These are the 2 Super Bowl favorites. I believe Week 1, that’s an incredible game.
Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks (Week 1)
Colin’s thoughts: “Russell Wilson comes back to face Pete Carroll. Seattle will probably be pretty feisty early within the season. If these teams played in Week 8, it will be a blow out. But you think that perhaps in Week 1, Russell comes back, Pete’s drafted pretty much defensively last couple of years, they throw a little bit of this at him, a little bit of that. And perhaps Denver isn’t quite all locked in defensively.”
Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Week 3)
Colin’s thoughts: “Brady has won three straight. what’s funny is that Aaron (Rodgers) can’t beat old man (Tom) Brady … which I believe deep down bothers Aaron Rodgers. That is the primary big game of the 12 months for Aaron Rodgers without Davante Adams. I don’t think Green Bay is within the Super Bowl window.”
Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs (Week 6)
Colin’s thoughts: “Rematch of last 12 months’s divisional round time beyond regulation thriller, one of the best football game in perhaps a decade. Bills made improvements this offseason, went and got Von Miller. The Chiefs lost Tyreek Hill, so Kansas City won’t be as explosive where I believe Buffalo goes to be the higher football team. I actually do think Buffalo was one of the best team within the NFL last 12 months they only didn’t win the Super Bowl. I believe Buffalo wins it this 12 months.”
Kansas City Chiefs at Cincinnati Bengals (Week 13)
Colin’s thoughts: “(Joe) Burrow and Cincinnati beat the Chiefs each times last 12 months. … I believe Cincinnati has higher wide receivers, I believe Cincinnati has an equal offensive line due to their upgrades on the inside OL, and I believe the Bengals have a more consistent pass rush than Kansas City. I believe Kansas City makes the playoffs as a wild card team.”
Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos (Week 14)
Colin’s thoughts: “This may occasionally find yourself being one of the best game of the 12 months.”
Latest England Patriots at Las Vegas Raiders (Week 15)
Colin’s thoughts: “Belichick against Josh McDaniels. Josh McDaniels leaving Mac Jones, I believe he knows Mac has a ceiling, and it’s not near (Justin) Herbert, Burrow, Mahomes, Josh Allen or Russell Wilson. And I believe McDaniels knows that Derek Carr is the higher quarterback. And now he’s going to have higher weapons. This Raider team is stacked offensively, and Derek Carr is best than Mac Jones. Not that it was a complete indictment on Mac Jones, however it’s a little bit indictment on Belichick’s inability to draft expert people and Jones’ inability to do anything off script.”
