The Wild Card round of the 2022 NFL playoffs has concluded, and it was one of the most memorable in recent years. We witnessed a heroic 27-point comeback by the Jacksonville Jaguars over the Los Angeles Chargers, a narrow Buffalo Bills victory over the Skylar Thompson-led Miami Dolphins, and a dominant Dallas Cowboys win over the scuffling Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This week’s Divisional round narrows the field to eight teams, and all four games feature a fair amount of intrigue. Kicking off on Saturday at 4:30 PM ET, the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Saturday night at 8:15 PM ET, the New York Giants travel to face the NFC East-rival Philadelphia Eagles.

Then on Sunday, we’ve got a rematch between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills at 3:00 PM ET. Finally, things wrap up with the Dallas Cowboys taking on the San Francisco 49ers at 6:30 PM ET.

Before we get to the picks, let’s check in on our staff standings.

Aaron Freeman remains just ahead of Jeanna “Mad Online” Kelley, 65% to 64%. Dave “Boss Man” Choate still holds on to a narrow lead for third place at 62%, with Kevin Knight closing quickly at 61%. Will McFadden continues to improve, now at 59%.
