Bleacher Report's Expert Consensus Wild Card Round Picks

The start of the 2012 NFL playoffs means that it's "win or go home" time in the NFL, where the men are separated from the boys and everything is on the line. Forget Christmas—for many NFL fans, this is the most wonderful time of the year!

The playoff field doesn't exactly match what people thought it would look like at the beginning of the year (or even halfway through the season), but Wild Card Weekend has some ridiculously exciting matchups.

We here at B/R will pick them all, just like we did all season. A bonus for all you readers out there: Every B/R lead writer will be offering his or her commentary on every playoff game! It's just a little something to make sure we're providing extra bang for your buck in the postseason. Plus, it helps that there are fewer games!

On to the picks!
