Wild Card Weekend is upon us and that means the pressure is ramped up and every team has to lay it all on the line. The same could be said about our weekly picks among the Westwood One NFL analysts, Mark Malone finished the regular season with a two-game edge on the field. As we have the past few years, wins during the season have been converted to points at one point per correct pick. So the standings look like this heading into the postseason:
- Mark, 176 points
- Boomer, 174 points
- Rod, 169 points
- James, 168 points
In the Wild Card round, every game is worth two points. So who are the guys backing this weekend? James and Rod are backing the home teams all the way. Mark has the Arizona Cardinals getting a win on the road to start the action on Saturday, while Boomer has the Ravens leaving the Steel City with a win on Saturday night.
