Wild Card Weekend NFL Staff Selections

We have finally reached the Playoffs and with all the AFC quarterback injuries, the New England Patriots are the favorite to get back to the Super Bowl with Tom Brady and Bill Bellicheck. The Raiders looked like the best team to compete with the Patriots, but injuries to Derek Carr and backup Matt McGloin, have left Oakland with rookie Connor Cook. The regular season race here at UltimateCapper came down to the final week and Reggie Garrett came away with a a half-point win over Bobby Babowski on Top Plays. This is Reggie’s first year making his NFL picks public, but can he keep up in the Playoffs with the seasoned Babowski and Jay Cooper? The matchups this week are intriguing and really could go either way in all four contests. The Steelers and Seahawks are big favorites, but the Dolphins and Lions are hungry for a Playoff win. The Giants and Packers cap off Wild Card Weekend on Sunday afternoon in what should be an entertaining game.


Our staff of Bobby Babowski, Jay Cooper, and Reggie Garrett give you all picks in every game including our top selection in yellow. We will have all our picks submitted by Friday afternoon, so check back often as we update the board throughout the week. You can always view our weekly records at our Staff Selections Home Page.

Our top play is in yellow.
