Although the Vikings possibly playing at home raises a lot of issues, they still have to win two games to get there.
Peter O'Reilly, the league's senior vice president of events, told Albert Breer of SI.com that the league would ordinarily be doing work on the Super Bowl host stadium more than two weeks ahead of the game but will have to change some of its preparations if U.S. Bank Stadium is hosting the NFC Championship Game. As a result, the Eagles are the sixth choice when it comes to winning the Super Bowl.
Last season's Super Bowl featuring the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots was one of the most entertaining games in Super Bowl history.
It is only the divisional round and there is still plenty of football to be played, but a Super Bowl rematch can still happen.
No team has ever played at home in the Super Bowl.
Canadian men's hockey team easier to cheer for than identify
The bulk of the National Hockey League experience comes from a half-dozen forwards with some familiar names. Canada starts Olympic play in a group with the Czech Republic, Switzerland and host South Korea.
Even though they made the playoffs this year, the Bills are tied with four other teams with the longest odds at 100/1.
They will also prove to be a much-tougher test for the Falcons than their recent opponent, the Los Angeles Rams, in the NFC wild-card game. Heading into the season, a Super Bowl rematch seemed likely.
The Patriots and Steelers enjoyed first-round byes in the AFC while the Eagles and Vikings were the top seeds in the NFC. The Patriots will be facing off against the Tennessee Titans, who fought through a tough game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Troy with Titans safety Brynden Trawick, UAB with Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Chris Hubbard and West Alabama with Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler also still have alumni in the Super Bowl tournament. There are many returning starters this season, which help with the team's playoff experience.
"All we've seen is enthusiasm for the Super Bowl", Lovinger said. Alabama has had 40 alumni play in the Super Bowl, with 28 on the winning team, including a current streak of five years with a victor. And as Ad Age's Anthony Crupi pointed out, the show's flashbacks provide plenty of opportunities to mine the Steeler's Super Bowl dominance of the late 70s and early 80s. With the Patriots continuing to be Super Bowl favorites, a rematch could be in the works which could lead to Tom Brady facing off again against Matt Ryan in Minneapolis during this year's Super Bowl.
