Bracket Racket: Wild Card 101

Here’s the skinny.  Two guys with big brains and small offices make up the entire NFL schedule every year. Yeah it’s a dream job, but it has some challenges... especially around playoff time.  The more you win, the better your chances of winning in the playoffs.  If your team has the best record in the conference, like the Packers and Patriots, not only do you get a week off, but you also get home field advantage throughout the playoffs.   
This weekend is Wild Card weekend. 8 teams, 4 games and the winners of each game moves on to play the 4 teams with the best overall record, from each conference. Here’s an easy way to think about it. The team with the best overall record always gets to play the team with the worst record. Hey, no one said it was gonna be easy!

Don't forget to fill in your own Playoff Pick 'Em!

Happy Wild Card Weekend!
