NFL teams fight for home field advantage all year long in the regular season.
There’s a huge uproar from analysts and NFL fans about re-seeding the NFL playoffs so that a just above average divisional winner (the Eagles) don’t get home field over a team with a better record (the Saints).
So what have learned so far in the 2013-2014 NFL Post-season?

San Francisco went to the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field and beat the Green Bay Packers in below freezing temperatures.
Despite the 49ers having to play every game away from home this post-season if they were to get to Super Bowl 48 in New Jersey, many have them picked as the favorites.
