Next month, the Minnesota Vikings will host Super Bowl LII in U.S. Bank Stadium. But if the Vikings are in the Super Bowl, the National Football League is going to let them practice at their own facility and send the AFC team to the University of Minnesota. "Keep heading to the Super Bowl so we can win that". The Eagles, who won the NFC East with a 13-3 record but are missing injured quarterback Carson Wentz, hold an 18-14-1 all-time mark against the Falcons, with the last win coming in 2016.
Auburn has five former players on the active rosters of four of the remaining playoff teams.
Pittsburgh is a 7 point favorite.
They are plus-1400 to win the title according to OddsShark, and that's a huge fall considering the way they played during the season. Atlanta Falcons (15/4) and Philadelphia Eagles (4/1) all have a decent shot at reaching the Super Bowl. Atlanta, who blew a 25-point lead in an overtime loss to New England in last year's Super Bowl, scored a 26-13 wildcard victory over the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams.
The victor in the semi-final match will be pitted against the victor of the American Football Conference, where the Pittsburgh Steelers will face Jacksonville Jaguars while New England Patriots will play against the Tennessee Titans in their respective divisions. The other game going on this weekend is the Jacksonville Jaguars taking on the Pittsburg Steelers in the AFC.
However, the Steelers are too strong for the Jaguars, and the Patriots seem likely to overwhelm the Titans.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the AFC's No. 2 seed and +500 on the Super Bowl futures.
The logistical nightmare can still be worked around with the built-in bye week between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, but even that may not be enough time to get everything done that would typically get done. Also, I think like most people, I would like to see the Falcons come back from that disaster in the Super Bowl a year ago.
That will set up a Pittsburgh-Minnesota Super Bowl, and that's a rematch of Super Bowl IX. They will also be looking for revenge from a year ago because they should have won the 2017 Super Bowl.
Umenyiora added: "I like the Vikings - I think defensively they're outstanding and offensively the quarterback has played a lot better than people thought but I'm just not sold".
