Dexter Williams Jersey , as eight teams square off in Wild Card games. In the AFC, there is one matchup of divisional rivals in Saturday’s first game before a 12-4 team goes on the road Sunday afternoon. The NFC sees four teams in action that all have recent playoff history with the Green Bay Packers in some manner. The Seahawks and Cowboys both played postseason games against Green Bay in 2014, with a divisional round rematch in Dallas in 2016. Chicago hosted the Packers in the 2010 NFC Championship, two rounds after the Packers beat Philadelphia in the Wild Card game.As always, 13 APC contributors submitted their picks for the four contests, and each game gets a breakdown along with our pick, which features the margin by which that team was selected.Indianapolis vs. HoustonThe point spread on this game is just one point in favor of the Texans Elgton Jenkins Jersey , so naturally APC is split closely on the result of the first game of the weekend. This should be both a good quarterback matchup, with Andrew Luck and DeShaun Watson, and a good defensive game since both teams rank in the top ten of DVOA. Interestingly, the road team won both matchups this year, with the Colts winning 24-21 at NRG Stadium in week 14. There’s plenty of reason to believe in a rejuvenated Andrew Luck and a suddenly-quite-good Colts defense that quietly finished 10th in the NFL in points allowed and DVOA.APC’s Pick: Colts (7-6)Seattle vs. DallasDallas is 21st in overall DVOA, thanks to a glum offense. The passing game is better since they acquired Amari Cooper, but the Seahawks’ defense found a way to be an above-average unit despite all the changes in the offseason. Still Dexter Williams Jersey , the Seahawks struggled to beat the Cardinals at home on Sunday, as Arizona stifled Russell Wilson. Seattle won the regular season meeting in week 3, 24-13 at home.APC’s Pick: Seahawks (10-3)LA Chargers vs. BaltimoreThese teams met just two weeks ago in LA, with the Chargers having a chance to pull ahead of the Chiefs for the top seed in the AFC. Instead, Baltimore’s defense smothered the Chargers, scoring a late insurance touchdown after Lamar Jackson hit on one big pass play to give Baltimore a third-quarter lead. Philip Rivers will need to perform far better than he did in that game, when he threw for just 181 yards and two picks on 37 attempts. A healthy Melvin Gordon should give LA the ability to stay more balanced on offense Vince Biegel Color Rush Jersey , provided they don’t get in an early hole, but Baltimore knows the blueprint to winning this game.APC’s Pick: Chargers (7-6)Philadelphia vs. ChicagoThe Eagles got some help from the Bears last Sunday, as Chicago beat Minnesota to open the door for Philly to make the postseason. Nick Foles is hot again and has completed a ridiculous 77% of his passes in three games since Carson Wentz suffered a stress fracture in his back. Doing that against the top-ranked Bears defense is a different story, however, as they are allowing just a completion rate of just 61.3% on the year and a passer rating of 72.9. It should be a little on the mild side at Soldier Field on Sunday — in the high 30s with no precipitation — but the matchup should favor the Bears’ running game and defense.APC’s Pick: Bears (9-4)Here are our full individual picks for this weekend’s games:2019 Wild Card Picks GameTexJasonPeterKrisBobJon MJordanMatubMikePaulShawnWendiZachAPC PickGameTexJasonPeterKrisBobJon MJordanMatubMikePaulShawnWendiZachAPC Pick The Green Bay Packers saw more than their playoff hopes dashed during a 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears. Star running back Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury that forced him to miss the majority of the game. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jones sprained his MCL and could miss some time.Fortunately for Jones and the Packers, the knee sprain doesn’t appear serious. The running back suffered a similar injury around this time last season and didn’t experience any issues upon his return. That Jones avoided a serious injury bodes well for next year. However https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Antonio-Morrison-Jersey , given the timing of the injury and Green Bay’s elimination from postseason contention, he will most likely sit out the final two games of 2018.With Jones on the shelf, Green Bay’s backfield currently consists of Jamaal Williams and the recently promoted Dan Vitale. As such, the team will likely add a running back to the rotation. The Packers have tailback Lavon Coleman available on their practice squad. They could also look to reacquire Darius Jackson who spent time with the team earlier in the season and currently resides on the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad.Even if Jones does not take another snap in 2018, he will finish the year as the Packers’ leading rusher with 728 yards and eight touchdowns. Jones also caught 26 passes for 206 yards and another score.
