Wild Card Weekend Predictions and Awards Season

Well, that was an exhilarating Week 17, wasn’t it? For those of you who read my Week 17 predictions post, you now know to take (some) of my picks with a grain of salt. But, that does not mean that I will stop making them. After you all let out a collective sigh, here are my predictions for awards and the highly anticipated Wild Card Weekend games.


MVP: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs

Offensive Player of the Year: Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints

Defensive Player of the Year: Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants (this was not very hard)

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Darius Leonard, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Comeback Player of the Year: Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts

Coach of the Year: Matt Nagy, HC, Chicago Bears

Wild Card Weekend Picks

Saturday 4:35 PM EST: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

The pick: Texans 27-19

Saturday 8:15 PM EST: Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys

The pick: Seahawks 17-14

Sunday 1:05 PM EST: Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens

The pick: Ravens 20-10

Sunday 4:40 PM EST: Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears

The pick: Bears 24-13 (no bias here, I promise…)

As we start 2019 off (hopefully) on the right foot, let us be thankful for a few things; we have PLAYOFF football (yes Jim Mora, playoffs) on both Saturday and Sunday for the next 2 weeks, the matchups are very good, and most remotes have a mute button for when Joe Buck gets his turn to call one of the four Wild Card Weekend games. Enjoy Wild Card Weekend everyone!
