NFL Playoff Predictions: Bleacher Report's Expert Consensus Wild-Card Picks
Frank Victores/Associated Press

The NFL's second season is underway.

On Saturday, the Wild Card Round of the 2015-16 NFL playoffs will begin. Thirty-two teams entered the season with dreams of making it to Santa Clara, California, and Super Bowl 50. For 12 teams, that dream still lives.

There are the usual suspects in both conferences. The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots (neither of whom plays this week) in the AFC. The two-time conference champion Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers in the NFC.

There are some new faces as well. The NFC's top seed (the Carolina Panthers) lost more games than it won in 2014. Four of this year's postseason participants weren't even in the playoffs last year.

Wild Card Weekend is sure to be, well, wild. More so than any other playoff weekend, the first is the one most likely to deviate from the script.

Which games will play out as expected? Who's cooking up an upset special?

We've gathered the NFL Analysts and National Lead Writers at Bleacher Report to answer those questions and more.
