Welcome to Wild Card Sunday, everyone. This one determines who gets to play the Panthers, in part, so you should probably sit up and take notice. In an ideal world, the team best suited to destroy our division rivals would be the one to advance.

After batting .500 yesterday, let's try again today. I fully expect the Seahawks to win their game even with Marshawn Lynch out, because Christine Michael is finally transforming into the fantasy superhero I knew he was, and Russell Wilson is simply too good to contain right now. I'll also hitch my wagon to the Packers, who should be able to beat Washington even with Aaron Rodgers looking very mortal.
