Wild Card Weekend NFL Picks

01/04/2014

Analyst Picks 2013

And so we’ve come to the end. Or the beginning. All how you look at it. Our analysts have made it through 17 weeks of NFL action and the regular-season standings shook out like this:

  1. Boomer, 164-92
  2. Mark, 163-93
  3. James, 158-98
  4. Rod, 157-99
  5. Trent, 154-102

So before we get to the new rules for the playoffs, a hearty congratulations to Boomer Esiason on winning the regular-season race. But we don’t put a wrap on this thing until the curtain falls on the NFL as a whole – and with a new playoff scoring system in effect, it’s anyone’s ballgame.

Here’s the breakdown: each analyst’s wins from the season are being converted to points (one for each correct pick all year long). And we’re raising the stakes for the postseason – just like the stakes are raised on the field. For each correct pick during the first two weekends of the playoffs, our analysts will receive two points. For the conference championships, each correct pick will be worth four points. And correctly picking the winner of Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2nd? That’ll be worth a whopping eight points. So just like the bonus round on your favorite game show, there’s a lot of room to gain ground late in the game.

So who’s going to step it up in crunch time? Here are our guys’ Wild Card picks…
