NFL Expert Picks: 2021 Championship Weekend straight-up winners


Somehow, we are already closing in on the end of the 2020-2021 NFL season. We are at Championship Weekend, with the top-two teams in each conference facing off for a spot in the Super Bowl. We have only three football games remaining this season.

Throughout the year, the contributors here on The Phinsider have run a straight-up winners picks pool. We update that now with our picks for both the AFC Championship and NFC Championship games.

During last weekend’s Divisional Round, Justin Hier and James McKinney both went 3-1, while CT Smith and Kevin Nogle were 2-2. That brings our playoff records to:

CT Smith 6-4

James McKinney 6-4

Justin Hier 6-4

Kevin Nogle 5-5

Josh Houtz went 4-2 in the Wildcard round, but missed making picks last week.
