Vikings' playoff run poses logistical challenges for Super Bowl preparations

Vikings' playoff run poses logistical challenges for Super Bowl preparations

NBC has the Olympics through 2032 as part of a $12 billion deal, and it's one of three networks that will take turns carrying the Super Bowl through 2022. "We are very focused on making sure that the two facilities are equitable, and our football operations side takes a lot of time to make sure the two facilities that we're delivering to the two Super Bowl teams have equivalent facilities in terms of space, opportunity for meeting rooms and access to facilities and weight rooms", O'Reilly told SI. However, they have turned their season around, and are looking to make another playoff run. 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.

The Falcons don't have the same dominant offense they had a season ago, but have the potential to make some noise in the playoffs. There are many returning starters this season, which help with the team's playoff experience.

The audience level for the Super Bowl has always towered over the rest of television, delivering 106 million viewers or more since 2010. Along with Robert Alford, the Falcons have a strong tandem of corner-backs that will be key to the success of the defense.

He said: "Philadelphia would've been my pick for the Super Bowl if it wasn't for the injury to the quarterback Carson Wentz". Like Foles, the Eagles don't have much playoff experience, which could lead to some problems.

"The biggest challenge would be if you got socked with a major snowstorm on Super Bowl Sunday that would make it hard for people to get to the game". Last season, linebacker Dont'a Hightower and cornerback Cyrus Jones were members of the New England Patriots' championship team.


After a series of a insane finishes during the AFC wild-card games, the divisional round is set.

The 2018 National Football League playoffs got off to a wild start when the Tennessee Titans upset the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday to kick off wild-card weekend.

No team has ever won the Super Bowl playing in their home stadium, but the Vikings have as good a chance as any team to accomplish that feat.

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

Both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars will prove to be tough match-ups in the AFC Championship game, but the Patriots are in good position to handle either team. The last time NBC had the game, in 2015, advertisers paid an average of $4.5 million per spot.
