The NFL Wildcard Playoffs kick off Saturday with the Washington Redskins travelling to take on the Seattle Seahawks and the Jacksonville Jaguars visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Sunday, the NY Giants go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans travel to the San Diego Chargers. We have four great matchups to kick off this playoff season and we look for a lot to be shaken up in the NFL.

In Seattle, the Redskins hope to relive some Joe Gibbs magic and take a ride thru the playoffs. With Todd Collins at the helm, the Redskins are an unknown. But with all that they have gone thru and having to win in order to make it, we like them to beat a Seattle team that we liked 4 weeks ago. Redskins win, 24-21.

In Pittsburgh, a lot of "experts" have already penciled in the Jaguars to advance. Hold on Britney Spears, don't go to crazy on me! The Steelers will be fairly healthy going into the game and should be ready to welcome David Girard to the Playoffs. Look for the Steelers to win 34-17.

In Tampa Bay, the Giants are looking like the team many NY'ers had hoped they would be. This game will come down to one man, Eli Manning. I think he comes thru and has the game of his life. Giants win, 28-26.

In San Diego, the Chargers are hot and Vince Young has been hurt. When they played earlier in the season, this turned into a scrap. I like Jeff Fisher a whole lot more than Norv Turner, but think the Chargers will get this win, 32-7.

What are your predictions? Let's see who is right and can brag until next week!
