Hello football fans! Welcome to Round 2 of the NFL postseason!

The Wild Card round was filled with surprising outcomes but not surprising gameplay. All visiting teams came, saw and conquered their home enemies.

The AFC featured the Kansas City Chiefs shutting out the Houston Texans 30-0. The Pittsburgh Steelers vanquished their rival Cincinnati Bengals in an ugly affair. The Chiefs will take on the New England Patriots, while the Steelers face the Denver Broncos.

In the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks escaped a frigid fate against the Minnesota Vikings. Green Bay got their groove back as the Packers defeated the Washington Redskins. Seattle will face the Carolina Panthers, and Green Bay travels to Arizona to battle the Cardinals.

Now, let’s talk picks. All four road teams won for the first time ever in a Wild Card Round. This means yours truly went 4-0. Here’s who I had below:


Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals

Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans

Here are my picks for this week. Check local listings for game times.
