Alabama, 5 Auburn alumni remain in Super Bowl chase

Alabama, 5 Auburn alumni remain in Super Bowl chase

Even though Minnesota's U.S. Bank Stadium is a newer stadium and a state-of-the-art venue, it still needs some temporary work done to accommodate hosting the Super Bowl, as every stadium hosting the big game typically does. However, the Falcons had some early struggles at the beginning of the season, which lead to some doubts about the Falcons being Super Bowl contenders.

The 1984 San Francisco 49ers won Super Bowl XIX playing at nearby Stanford Stadium, but that was not the Niners' home stadium.

The singer is from a suburb north of Philadelphia and her home-region Philadelphia Eagles are among the eight clubs still in contention to play in the Super Bowl. 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. Should the Vikes win just two more games, they will not only host a super bowl party - they'll take part in it. Game broadcasters showed the protests during the initial weeks but reduced coverage of them later.

They will also prove to be a much-tougher test for the Falcons than their recent opponent, the Los Angeles Rams, in the NFC wild-card game. The Eagles, playing without injured quarterback Carson Wentz, have had a week to try to fix the offense. The Vikings had Keenum run play-action 29 percent of the time in 2017, just a fraction of a percentage point lower than Jared Goff for the highest rate in the National Football League, which helped boost his passer rating from 92.8 to 111.8 on those attempts.

The Patriots and Steelers enjoyed first-round byes in the AFC while the Eagles and Vikings were the top seeds in the NFC.

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

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.

Quarterback Tom Brady is looking to reach the Super Bowl for a remarkable eighth time and hoping to seal a sixth title.

"All we've seen is enthusiasm for the Super Bowl", Lovinger said. Both will have to play their best football to make the rematch happen, but if both teams continue their strong play, we could be looking at another interesting Super Bowl featuring the Falcons and Patriots.

The audience level for the Super Bowl has always towered over the rest of television, delivering 106 million viewers or more since 2010.
