NFL Wild Card Predictions with ESPN’s Freddie Coleman
If the past two NFL Wild Card weekends have taught us anything, it's that the road teams this weekend have more than a puncher's chance. In those eight games the past two years, teams on the road have covered the spread every time and they're 5-3 outright. Here's how I rank the chances of the four road teams advancing to the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
4. Vikings, 3. Titans, 2. Bills, 1. Seahawks.
I could make a case for swapping the Vikings and Titans, but because I've gone against the Patriots too many times (and been wrong too many times), I just don't see New England losing at home in primetime in the playoffs. On top of that, while I think Minnesota is being undersold by people this weekend, the Saints' offense looks like a boulder picking up momentum as it descends the mountainside.
