Alabama, 5 Auburn alumni remain in Super Bowl chase

I'd say these things are hard to win but then again Eli Manning won two of them I'd say these things are hard to win but then again Eli Manning won two of them

No Supe for you! All four home teams were favored by at least six to win their respective games, and all four failed to cover, with the first two (Kansas City and Los Angeles) losing outright. The Eagles have a lot to step up to in order to pull off this last chance for the Super Bowl.

Now we are down to the NFL's Elite Eight in the Divisional Round.

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. Tennessee had to win in Week 17 to simply make the playoffs and, most likely, to save the job of head coach Mike Mularkey. Last season, linebacker Dont'a Hightower and cornerback Cyrus Jones were members of the New England Patriots' championship team.

Defensive end Umenyiora, 36, was part of the New York Giants team that beat Bill Belichick's Patriots at the Super Bowl in 2008 and 2012.

NFC No. 2 seed Minnesota is a +375 second-favorite to win the Super Bowl.

On Saturday afternoon, the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Atlanta Falcons to begin the sprint toward Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52. However, if the Vikings reach the big game, the Vikings will get the home field advantage, a contingency plan the National Football League always has in mind just in case. The Vikings host the New Orleans Saints (+550) in this round.

In the AFC, the Patriots are the clear favorites at 4/7, while the Steelers have the second-best odds at 9/4.

NFL Facing Unique Challenge Prepping For Super Bowl LII With Vikings Still Playing

As they were last week, the Vikings are the favorite to represent the NFC (and be the first team to earn homefield) in the Super Bowl.

"I need to see the first game and that will give me a better barometer as to what they're going to do".

The Jaguars beat the Steelers 30-9 back in September, marking as Pittsburg's worst loss of the season.

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 Eagles lost star quarterback Carson Wentz to a season-ending Week 14 ACL injury and that has dramatically changed oddsmakers' view of them.

The Vikings would essentially flip the NFL's arrangements for game prep and accommodations if the Vikings manage to reach the Super Bowl.
