NFL Wild Card Weekend Predictions


The Minnesota Vikings 2018 season may be over, but for 12 NFL teams things are just starting to heat up. Wild Card Weekend is a stone’s throw away with four games on the docket for Saturday and Sunday. The final game of the 2018 NFL season will be Super Bowl LIII which kicks off from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA on February 3.

Yes, it would be a lot more exciting for us if the Vikes were still sniffin’ victory and joining the others in post-season play. Their Super Bowl hopes went by the wayside with that embarrassing, head in the sand 24-10 loss to the Chicago Bears on December 30.

So, now what? Pick a different team for the post play and enjoy some more football! Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints? They don’t play until the late afternoon game on January 12. Or, maybe Philip Rivers and the Chargers who haven’t been to the playoffs for five years. Plus, you know how those Twisted Sisters love their predictions. Here’s the playoff schedule, and some additional predictions. Share yours on our Facebook page!
