But they aren't among the colleges already locked into the Super Bowl. In fact, only seven teams in National Football League history have made the postseason in a year their home city hosted the Super Bowl.

NFC North victor Minnesota Vikings (13-3) face NFC South champion New Orleans Saints (12-5). While the Patriots' have the fourth-lowest-rated defense in our metrics, they have allowed over 17 points just twice since Week 5, with a starting secondary boasting all four players with PFF player grades above 80.0.
The Alabama alumni still playing are wide receiver Julio Jones and defensive lineman Courtney Upshaw of the Atlanta Falcons, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, offensive tackle Cam Robinson and running back T.J. Yeldon of the Jacksonville Jaguars, running back Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints, guard Chance Warmack of the Philadelphia Eagles and running back Derrick Henry of the TennesseeTitans. 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.
While oddsmakers have consistently had the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers in a two-team race for the AFC title, the NFC has been a more complicated picture.
The Jaguars are plus-1800 and the Titans are plus-5000, making them the longest shot on the board.
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.
The long-suffering Vikings will take advantage of their home field and will beat the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs and the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game to earn their chance to play the Super Bowl on their home field.
NFC No. 2 seed Minnesota is a +375 second-favorite to win the Super Bowl.
In the AFC, with a healthy PittsburghSteelers team, Arians expects them to make the big game, but believes Atlanta will be victorious. They will also be looking for revenge from past year because they should have won the 2017 Super Bowl. So why not cheer for Atlanta and maybe they get back to the Super Bowl and make good on a year ago?
