Cincy Jungle staff picks for every NFL Wild Card matchup

New, comments

We are back with your weekly picks and starting fresh for the playoffs, beginning with the Wild Card round this weekend!

With the regular season wrapped up, we can officially congratulate Scott Bantel as the 2015-2016 Cincy Jungle Pick 'Em Champion! Early on, it looked as if Rebecca Toback was going to run away from everyone, but Scott came on strong late in the season, hitting 10 or more picks in each of the last five weeks of the season. Scott managed 10+ correct picks in 12 out of 17 weeks this year, easily the most in the league. Here is the complete rundown of the ranking:

  1. Scott Bantel
  2. Cody Tewmey, Rebecca Toback
  3. Scott Schulze
  4. Alberto Luque
  5. Dadio McDuck, Kyle Phelps
  6. Jason Marcum
  7. Mickey Mentzer
  8. Alex Healey
  9. Art Bidwell

Now that we are in the postseason, nothing that has happened before matters to the teams playing this weekend. With that being the case, our playoff records will stand alone from our regular season picks.

According to the staff, 75 percent of this weekend's games are basically locks. 10 of us like Kansas City to beat Houston on the road, 10 of us like Seattle to beat Minnesota on the road, and nine of us like the Bengals to take care of business in the Queen City. The Green Bay-Washington matchup is the only matchup that brought somewhat of a split, with seven of us liking the Pack to dispatch Captain Kirk in Washington.
