The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for the wild card round of the 2022 NFL playoffs!

But before we get to those, we must note the 2021 regular season BGN picks champion is ... a tie! Both Shamus Clancy and you, the collective BGN community, finished tied for the top spot. Congrats are in order ... but we’re not done yet! It’s time to kick off our playoff predictions.

When it comes to this week’s Philadelphia Eagles game, DraftKings Sportsbook says the Birds are 8.5-point road underdogs to the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that hasn’t stopped most of our BGN writers from picking the upset. Feel free to shun the few non-believers.

Let’s get to the picks!
