The NN staff has put together its picks for the 2015 NFL playoffs. Not surprisingly, the Seahawks are frequently mentioned.

Welcome to the 2015 NFL playoffs. We took a look at the full schedule of wild card weekend, but now it's time for the predictions from across Niners Nation. I emailed the front page writers to get their thoughts on who will win what over the next month. They provided their picks for all four rounds of the playoffs, starting with this weekend's wild card round, and ending with the Super Bowl.

The Seattle Seahawks are the most popular Super Bowl pick, with three people, including myself, selecting them to win it all. The Packers and Patriots are next with two selections. The most popular Super Bowl matchup is Seahawks-Patriots (4), and then Patriots-Packers (three). James Brady and David Neumann picked the Colts and Patriots, respectively, to beat the Patriots. I went with the Seahawks over the Patriots.

The most notable stat to carry over from last year is that favorites were 0-3-1 ATS in the 2014 wild card round. This year, all four higher seeds are favored, and most of us are taking them. It is all but guaranteed that we will be wrong. The question is which team will that be? Here is a table of all our picks.
