The WOOOOO Nation Uncensored is co-hosted by Ric Flair and professional sportscaster Mark Madden. Both of them are football enthusiasts. Madden was promoting a website for sports fans. It is called BountySports.com. This website allows the fans to make predictions for their favorite teams in any sport. For the promotion, the duo decided to predict the NFL wild-card round. 

The first game the duo predicted was the Las Vegas Raiders vs Cincinnati Bengals. At the end of the regular season, Cincinnati was not necessarily the favorite to win this game. However, Madden picked the Bengals and asked Flair to make his prediction. Ric said“Bengals, all day long.” He adds, “I love Joe Burrow, and I’m so happy he came back from that knee injury.” Both agreed and moved on to the next game. The Bills were the favorites, walking into the wild card game against the Patriots. Madden and the Nature Boy agreed with the fans and picked the Buffalo Bills. 

The last AFC game the duo predicted was the Steelers vs the Chiefs. For this game, they agreed with Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers are the underdog, but they will have a hard time conquering the Chiefs. Flair said“Sentimentally, I feel the same way about Ben [Roethlisberger], But I don’t think that they can beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead.”

Mark Madden opened up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Philadelphia Eagles predictions. He chose the Bucs all day long and praised Tom Brady by saying even if their receiving has depleted, you can’t go against him. Ric Flair added“Neither can I, I mean, who can really?”

The 49ers and the Cowboys game was next. Madden is rooting for an upset. He thinks that the Cowboys are the most overrated team in the NFL. Flair says“After watching them yesterday, I take the Niners too.” He adds“Either Shanahan is a great coach, but that kid [Jimmy] Garoppolo, he played outstanding, I mean, they’re gonna be tough to beat.” For the final NFC wild-card game, both Madden and Flair picked the LA Rams over the Arizona Cardinals.
