Nope. It rotates each year. The AFC gets designated as the home team in odd numbered years, and the NFC in even numbered years. The Chiefs (AFC) were the home team last year. We will be the home team this year if we make it.
That would have to be surreal for the Bucs.. Playing in the Super Bowl, in your own city, in your own stadium, in your own locker room.. Really hope we get to witness it!! I’d be willing to bet very few other fan bases are rooting for Tampa Bay..
Be interesting to see if Bucs players would be allowed to stay at home during the week of practice and then only stay in a hotel on Saturday just like always. Players are so tied to routine it could be a big advantage that it’s just like every other week during the season.
