The Patriots have the top seed in the AFC after posting a 13-3 record. They had the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL and top offense in the AFC with 458 points. Their +162 point differential was tied for best in the league as well. The Patriots have won five Super Bowls, including two of the last three.
The Vikings at the No. 2 seed in the NFC at 13-3, but with the Eagles losing Carson Wentz, Minnesota is considered the team to beat in the NFC. The Vikings had the top defense in the NFL this year, allowing just 252 points. The offense managed to produce 382 points despite losing their starting QB and starting RB early in the year. Minnesota has never won the Super Bowl, but this year’s game will be held at their own stadium, U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Steelers are coming into the postseason 13-3 as well, putting them second in the AFC. The Steelers put up 406 points this year while allowing 308. Pittsburgh has a key injury entering the postseason with Antonio Brown battling a partially torn calf, but he could return in two weeks. The Steelers have won six Super Bowls in franchise history, the last coming in 2008.
The Saints are the fourth seed in the NFC after going 11-5 this year. New Orleans put up 448 points this season, which was third-most in the conference. The Saints have rushed for over 2,000 yards this season, giving them a lot of offensive weapons to go with Drew Brees. The Saints last won the Super Bowl in 2009, their only Super Bowl championship.
