Well, the Las Vegas Raiders’ season is over but we’re moving onto the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs in our 2021 NFL Season Pick ‘Em Challenge at Silver and Black Pride. Last week was a lot of chalk but we could be in for a few surprises this time around.

The NFL playoff lines are in over on DraftKings Sportsbook, and this week’s favorites are the Titans -3.5 over the Bengals, the Packers -6 over the 49ers, Buccaneers -3 over the Rams and the Chiefs -2.5 over the Bills. For those curious, Green Bay currently has the best odds to win it all at +350 and Kansas City is in second at +380.

Let’s take a look at our writer’s playoffs standings after Wild Card weekend:

  1. Matt Holder 6-0 (100%)
  2. Bill Williamson 4-2 (67%)
  3. Marcus Johnson 2-4 (33%)

That’s a perfect week for your boy! 6-0 and it don’t get no better than that! Bill had a strong showing at 4-2 and Marcus, well, Marcus can’t predict an NFL game to save his life. Then again, I’m the guy who said the Jaguars had no shot take down the Colts on Tape Don’t Lie...

After a total of 272 possible contests, here is the writers’ standing:

  1. Bill Williamson 179-98-1 (65%)
  2. Matt Holder 178-98-1 (64%)
  3. BD Williams 157-96-1 (62%)
  4. Marcus Johnson 111-90-1 (55%)

Bill is still our regular-season champion, but I figured why not keep the tally going for the postseason? Plus, I now have another chance to catch him. I moved within a half-game of Bill’s overall mark, while Marcus fell deeper down the hole.
