    Want to give your favorite NFL team a leg up on next year's Super Bowl championship?

    Hope and pray they're the opponent when the Philadelphia Eagles open their season at home.

    As one points out, the last four Super Bowl winners have all been the opponent when the Eagles started yet another disappointing season at Lincoln Financial Field. The Baltimore Ravens lost to Philadelphia 24-23 in Week 2, yet they were still able to join the New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints (all winners over the Eagles, by the way) in the line of eventual champions.

    Is this nothing more than a fun coincidence? Of course. But if you're one of the eight teams* scheduled to hit Philly in 2013, you might want to cross your fingers when the schedules are announced in the spring.

    *The Eagles are scheduled to host Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Washington, Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, San Diego and Arizona in 2013.

    It's true though.

    Total fluke the AFC won this year. NFC is so much better.

    We all know why the AFC won this year. I'd go as far as saying that the AFC doesn't even have a top 5 team.
