NFL wild card picks for 2014 have come in from the "Around the Horn" analysts. These 2014 NFL wild card picks come from the Jan. 3 episode of the show on ESPN. A report from ESPN on Friday afternoon did note that Pierre Thomas will miss the New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles game, with that announcement coming after the analysts made their picks. Bill Plaschke, Tim Cowlishaw, Kevin Blackstone, and Jackie MacMullan were the guests.

The guests ended up splitting on that Saints vs. Eagles game, with two favoring each team to pull out an important win. They also split on the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts game, with two analysts feeling the Colts are getting hot at the right time and two feeling that the Chiefs defense is too tough to overcome.

In the Cincinnati Bengals vs. San Diego Chargers game, none of them give the Chargers much of a chance to win this road game. Maybe that could turn into bulletin board material for players on that team as kickoff approaches. As for the San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers game, only Plaschke felt that Lambeau Field would serve as an advantage to Aaron Rodgers and his Packers.

2014 NFL Wild Card Picks From "Around the Horn" Guests:

Bill Plaschke: Eagles, Colts, Packers, Bengals

Tim Cowlishaw: Saints, Chiefs, 49ers, Bengals

Kevin Blackstone: Saints, Colts, 49ers, Bengals

Jackie MacMullan: Eagles, Chiefs, 49ers, Bengals
