Playbook picks: Cowboys to beat Eagles again

NFL Network’s Playbook analysts are almost unanimous on their wild card picks. They all expect the Cowboys, Jets and Packers to march on in the postseason. The only place in which not all three agree is in the Patriots-Ravens matchup. While Brian Baldinger and Sterling Sharpe like the Patriots to advance, Joe Theismann is going with the Ravens.

This week, Playbook will not air based on conference games, but rather based on the date. The show about the two Saturday games (Jets-Bengals, Eagles-Cowboys) will air on Thursday at 6 p.m. ET, while the show about the two Sunday games (Ravens-Patriots, Packers-Cardinals) will air on Friday at 6 p.m. ET.

Here are the Wild-Card Weekend picks:

Sharpe: Cowboys
Theismann: Cowboys

Packers at Cardinals
Baldinger: Packers
Sharpe: Packers
Theismann: Packers
AFC
