NBC expects ad sales record with Super Bowl, Olympics

US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Super Bowl includes the added attraction of big-budget and often star-studded commercials that people tune in to watch. If the Steelers make the Super Bowl, the "This Is Us" promos write themselves.

"The Super Bowl is a live event ... and when you're covering a live event, you're covering what's happening".

No team has ever played at home in the Super Bowl.

Throughout the Super Bowl's history, there have been two games that were, in essence, home games.

The NFC's leading two teams Philadelphia and Minnesota also kick off their respective post-season campaigns this weekend, but Umenyiora isn't convinced on either of those teams.

The top team in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles, host the Atlanta Falcons (11-6).

No, backup quarterback Nick Foles is not as good as Carson Wentz - that's obvious - but the Eagles defense is still the same one that was ranked as the fifth-best per DVOA and the second-best defensive unit per the game charters at Pro Football Focus.

"I want them to tell the people, 'Get off your damn knees and stand up for the American anthem that people died for in this country!'" guest Dan Bongino exclaimed.

The Eagles played like the best team in the National Football League for the majority of the National Football League season, but that is no longer the case.

The Jaguars are plus-1800 and the Titans are plus-5000, making them the longest shot on the board.

On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars kick off the festivities.

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.

The Falcons have more offensive weapons than the Eagles, and the defending NFC champions will get back to the conference championship game. And as Ad Age's Anthony Crupi pointed out, the show's flashbacks provide plenty of opportunities to mine the Steeler's Super Bowl dominance of the late 70s and early 80s. The Vikings would also presumably have more of their own fans in the stadium than Super Bowl teams ordinarily do, although tickets are allocated differently for the Super Bowl, so it wouldn't be the equivalent of a Vikings home game. Quarterback Tom Brady finished the regular-season as the third-most valuable quarterback per ESPN's Total Quarterback Rating and was instrumental in the team scoring a league-leading 2.6 points per drive, almost a point per drive more than the league average (1.8), and the 12th best scoring efficiency since 2002, the year the league expanded to 32 teams.
