Sunday, when Minnesota hosts the New Orleans Saints as the NFC's number two seed, it will become the first Super Bowl host to ever play a home game in the Divisional round of the postseason. The NFL Super Bowl prep team may secretly be rooting for the Eagles this weekend, just so they can get in Minnesota's stadium and get to work with three weeks to get their jobs done instead of two. As a result, the Eagles are the sixth choice when it comes to winning the Super Bowl.
The Vikings would essentially flip the NFL's arrangements for game prep and accommodations if the Vikings manage to reach the Super Bowl. The remaining percentage of the ticket revenue goes to the host team, and the Vikings would get that revenue on top of their Super Bowl share. While he deserves credit for using his legs to help get the Jags to the next round, if Bortles can't throw the ball better than Sunday then Jacksonville's season will likely end in Pittsburgh this weekend. Julio Jones finally found his way into the end-zone during last week's wild card match-up against the Los Angeles Rams, which should raise his confidence during the rest of the playoffs as he only finished with one touch-down catch this season. Lead by Ryan, the team has the leadership needed to make yet another deep playoff run. The Titans don't appear to be almost the threat to New England that the Chiefs would have been. In 51 games, there has not been a single team that's gotten the unique advantage of playing in front of its home crowd.

The jackpot-winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, located at 7131 Ridge Road in Port Richey. The winning ticket was purchased on January 5 from the 7-Eleven store on Ridge Road in Pasco County.
Jacksonville, who beat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 to set up a meeting with the Steelers, enjoy a surprising 13-11 all-time record over Pittsburgh, including a 30-9 victory in October.
Teams also practiced at home during Super Bowl week, which the National Football League allowed at the time. The Titans' defense is stout, but the Patriots are talented across the board, which gives them a great chance of making it back to the AFC Championship game. Meanwhile Philadelphia enters this game with a sizeable chip on its shoulder eager to show this team is still a threat even without injured quarterback Carson Wentz. This means that people are asking the question about who will win the Super Bowl. Ignore the noise from the outside and I feel like that's what myself, a lot of other players have been doing. Both will have to play their best football to make the rematch happen, but if both teams continue their strong play, we could be looking at another interesting Super Bowl featuring the Falcons and Patriots.
