Colin Cowherd unveiled his "Blazin' 5" for Week 1 of the NFL season during this Friday's edition of The Herd.

Cowherd is going with a bold prediction to start the regular season.

Believe it or not, Cowherd has the Detroit Lions shocking the Philadelphia Eagles at home this Sunday.

"I'm going to take the Lions to win one of the more entertaining games of the weekend," Cowherd said.

"Take points, 27-26 [lion]."

Cowherd listed a few reasons why he thinks the Lions will beat the Eagles.

For starters, Cowherd isn't so sure that Eagles will be able to generate any pressure on Lions quarterback Jared Goff.

He also mentioned that Detroit ended the 2021 regular season on a positive note.

Perhaps that momentum will last through the first week of the 2022 season.

The Lions have no doubt improved their roster during the off-season.

However, the Eagles are supposed to be the dark-horse contenders this season.

It will be a huge surprise to see them start the year with a 0-1 record.

The Eagles are listed as the 4.5-point favorite title this weekend due to some odds.

Kickoff for the Eagles-Lions game is at 1 p.m. ET at Ford Field.
