Analyst Picks: Wild Card Weekend

01/09/2016

Analyst Picks 2015

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — the NFL Playoffs are upon us. Wild Card Weekend serves up four intriguing matchups that will hopefully produce four compelling games. But first a final look back on the regular season…

Congrats go out to Tim Ryan, who eked out the top spot in our regular season analyst picks by a single game over Ross Tucker. But, just like on the field, no trophies are awarded for the regular season (of course, in our analyst picks no trophies are awarded at all, but that’s beside the point.)

In the playoffs, each weekend is worth 8 points – so Wild Card and Divisional Round wins are worth two points, a correct pick in the Championship Games is worth 4 points each and selecting the Super Bowl 50 champion will be worth 8 big points. So it’s still anyone’s game as we get ready for Wild Card Weekend.
