NFL Playoffs 2019 Picks: Wild Card Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL games.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for the Wild Card round of the 2019 NFL Playoffs! Each week we’ll predict the winners of each and every NFL game. We’ll tally the results along the way and see who comes out on top at the end of the season.

Your 2018 regular season BGN picks champion is ... me! I edged out James Keane by just one game in order to knock off last year’s champ: the collective BGN community. Just more proof that I’m smarter than all of the readers ... COMBINED. Just kidding, but I think it’s completely fair to say I know more than Ben Solak, who finished last in the standings and has been relegated. Sorry, Ben.

When it comes to this week’s Philadelphia Eagles versus Chicago Bears game, MOST of our writers are feeling very confident in the reigning Super Bowl champions. There are two non-believers among us.

Feel free to post your own predictions or discuss the writer predictions in the comments. You can also vote for who you think will win the games. I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. Vote in the polls beneath the table.

Let’s get to this week’s picks!
