NFL Playoffs Home Field Advantage Doesn’t Matter

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?

“Home field is just not that important,” said Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. “Home field is something that everyone wants. You want that comfort level and that crowd but it’s not as important [as you’d believe].

“The reality is that the best team wins and who the crowd is cheering for just isn’t all that important.”

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.
