Wild Card Weekend is in the books. While Ryan Ruocco went a perfect 4-0, the TWIF host still trails panelist Gary Myers in the overall standings. The group finished a cumulative 11-4 and look to continue the good run into Divisional Weekend. The team is unanimous in their selections with the exception of Howard Cross, who has the Seattle Seahawks on the road over the Atlanta Falcons, owners of the NFC's best record in 2012.

We will keep a tally of each performance in addition to adding their totals to the season-long derby, so by the first weekend in February you’ll know if Myers, the regular-season winner, will take home both proverbial trophies.
