America's Vote: 2008 NFL Wild Card
The NFL playoffs are finally here, and we want to know which teams America thinks will advance out of the NFL Wild Card this weekend.
The first week of the playoffs present some tough picks. Will Eli Manning finally deliver a good playoff performance and lead the Giants past the Buccaneers? Are the Redskins good enough to stroll out of Seattle with a win? Can the Jaguars win another game in Pittsburgh? And can the Titans defeat the Chargers without a healthy Vince Young?
It's time to get your vote on America. Make your picks now!
A regular season that will always be remembered first and foremost for tragedy after the death of safety Sean Taylor ended with the Redskins rallying to earn the final NFC playoff berth. Will they keep winning behind veteran quarterback Todd Collins, or will Mike Holmgren's Seahawks move on to the next round?

The Jaguars aren't likely to be intimidated by their surroundings in Pittsburgh, not after beating the Steelers in the snow at Heinz Field a few weeks ago and finishing the regular season with a better record than the hosts. Without Willie Parker, can Mike Tomlin's team still find a way to win?

Fresh off pushing the Patriots to the limit, and perhaps not so fresh because of the extended duty for all their regulars, the Giants head to Tampa for a showdown with the Buccaneers. Will Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning silence their critics, or will Jon Gruden's Buccaneers keep creeping up on people?

Vince Young joined Peyton Manning on the sidelines during the second half of Tennessee's final must-win regular season game, but the Titans won anyway thanks to Kerry Collins, a stout defense and a reliable kicker. Can they win again if Young isn't 100 percent?
