Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians picks Falcons-Steelers Super Bowl

NFL playoff predictions through Super Bowl 52: Updated

Pittsburgh Steelers the only team in AFC who can stop New England Patriots making Super Bowl, says Osi Umenyiora

What an interesting wild-card weekend in the NFL.

With about four weeks to go before the game, tickets will cost you well over $3,000 just to get in the door-and that's just for the cheapest tickets.

"But I knew that we were going to be in the playoffs".

Eight NFL teams remain in the running to reach Super Bowl LII.

So when is Super Bowl 2018? Also, the Super Bowl this year is in Minnesota so they could become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their own stadium. We simply do not have the historical data to determine how much (if any) to give to them, and hence err on the side of caution here.

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

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. Last season, linebacker Dont'a Hightower and cornerback Cyrus Jones were members of the New England Patriots' championship team. A relatively-hot, and mathematically-underachieving Falcons team seemed to put it all together against the Rams, forcing the market to take notice (en route to setting up the first-ever divisional matchup where the conference's top seed is an underdog). New Orleans held off the Carolina Panthers for the third time this season on Sunday, winning 31-26.

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

As with last week's projections, this is where New England's strength over the rest of the AFC shows up (their PFFELO rating is about 50 points higher than Pittsburgh's).

"Matty Ryan, and just the way their defense plays", he said.

The Minnesota Vikings are the second seed in the NFC, and they have a chance to play at home in the Super Bowl if they win their conference championship. In a typical year, that work is already underway at the host site for the Super Bowl, but the National Football League is forced to work around the Vikings as the team prepares to host a divisional round playoff game this weekend, and possibly prepares for a home game in the NFC Championship Game the following weekend. Thirty-two Auburn alumni have played in the Super Bowl, and 16 were members of the winning team, including defensive backs Jonathan Jones and Brandon King with the Patriots previous year.
