There are only 7 games left in the NFL post-season. Will our Buddy, Snyder hang on to win our Annual NFL Pickoff VS the Spread - despite going 0-4 in the Wild Card round?

Here's how our pickers, Snyder, Scott Stafford, John Reidy and Colin Daniels see it going down in the Divisional games...


Baltimore @ Denver (-9.5)
The Ravens visit the Mile High City for the first time this season, fresh off a victory over the Colts in Baltimore. It won’t be Andrew Luck they face this time - and this time they’re not at home. The rested Broncos will play host for as long as they stay alive in these playoffs; and, if the line is correct, that should mean at least one more week. Denver toppled B’more not long ago - and it wasn’t close.
Colin’s pick: Baltimore +9.5
Reidy’s pick: Baltimore +9.5
Snyder’s pick: Denver -9.5 

Scott’s pick: Denver -9.5

Green Bay @ San Francisco (-3)
The ’Niners destroyed the Packers way back in week one. That was a long time ago. Now Green Bay, fresh off a Wild Card victory over Minnesota, travels to California to visit Colin Kaepernick and top-seeded San Francisco in what should be the best game of the weekend.  
Colin’s pick: Green Bay +3
Reidy’s pick: San Francisco -3
Snyder’s pick: Green Bay +3

Scott’s pick: Green Bay +3

Seattle @ Atlanta (-2.5)
The Seahawks are tough as nails. They were lucky to get out of Washington with a win, though. They’re much more potent at home, but they head out on the road this week, to Atlanta, to square off with Matt Ryan and a Falcons team that simply must make noise in the playoffs. 
Colin’s pick: Seattle +2.5
Reidy’s pick: Seattle +2.5
Snyder’s pick: Atlanta -2.5

Scott’s pick: Seattle +2.5

Houston @ New England (-9.5)
The Patriots seem destined to face the Broncos in the AFC Championship game. First they must dispatch the Houston Texans. Can JJ Watt and the Houston defense rattle Brady enough to keep this game interesting?
Colin’s pick: Houston +9.5
Reidy’s pick: Houston +9.5
Snyder’s pick: New England -9.5

Scott’s pick: New England -9.5
