ESPN analysts leaning toward Cardinals

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, addressing reporters in a news conference that has recently concluded, repeated the line about nobody picking his team to win a playoff game.

While plenty have picked against Arizona to this point, the Cardinals are adding believers. Seven of the 13 forecasters to make picks on our site -- here and here -- are taking the Cardinals to beat the Eagles and advance to the Super Bowl.

Picking the Cardinals:

  • Seth Wickersham

  • Merril Hoge

  • Cris Carter

  • Tom Jackson

  • Bill Simmons

Picking the Eagles:
