With the 2022 NFL Playoffs set to kick off Saturday, we decided to turn the tables on our weekly NFL Roundtable by gathering TwinSpires columnists Ashley Anderson, James Scully, and Scott Shapiro together via video to discuss the latest NFL headlines.

They began by weighing in on Ben Roethlisberger's likely final postseason appearance and his Pittsburgh Steelers' chances against the mighty Kansas City Chiefs in the Wild Card Round.

They also looked at which teams have the best chance at hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LVI, and named a few dark-horse contenders, including the sixth-seeded San Francisco 49ers.

Finally, they talked about NFL single-season records in the league's first 17-game season and discussed the biggest games to watch during Super Wild Card Weekend!
