When the Vikings host the Saints on Sunday (4:40 ET, FOX), it will mark the first time in National Football League history that a Super Bowl host has played a divisional game at home. As a result, the Eagles are the sixth choice when it comes to winning the Super Bowl. After 51 Super Bowls, we haven't had a team play on its home field yet. 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. When Ben Roethlisberger, LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown are all healthy, stopping a Pittsburgh team that won 10 out of its last 11 games should be too much for the Jaguars. 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. But they still let advertisers reach tens of millions of viewers at once, and networks compete fiercely for the rights to big games. 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. That game, a wild comeback victory by the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons, drew an estimated audience of 111.3 million viewers, down slightly from the year before. 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.

Either the Patriots or the Steelers are expected to win the AFC title.

No team has ever played a Super Bowl in its home stadium, and no team has even hosted a conference championship game with a chance to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium.

That will set up a Pittsburgh-Minnesota Super Bowl, and that's a rematch of Super Bowl IX. The Super Bowl will be politicized this year like never before.
