For the first time in the Super Bowl era, the NFL postseason doesn't feature any NFC teams who have yet to win a Lombardi Trophy in their history.
This was pointed out by Reddit user JaguarGator9, who broke down every NFC playoff team from 1966-2017 that hadn't won a Super Bowl. But this year's NFC postseason entrants - the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks - have all won at least one Super Bowl championship.
Last year, the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings and Eagles entered the NFC playoffs as organizations without a Super Bowl. Of course, the Eagles would go on to win Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots. And after barely squeaking in over the Vikings this year, the Eagles helped the NFC make history that JaguarGator9 pointed out.
The top-seeded New Orleans Saints won their first and only Super Bowl nine seasons ago. They need just two home wins to secure their second trip to the big dance, which takes place in Atlanta this year.
The Rams won their only Super Bowl back in the 1999 season, when the franchise was based in St. Louis. Led by the great Kurt Warner, the Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans in a nail-biter, but they've been mired in mediocrity for most of the 21st century. Jared Goff and co. have a chance to end the two-decade long title drought now.
As for the Seahawks, they won their only Super Bowl just five seasons ago, where the Legion of Boom pummeled the Denver Broncos in the big game. Seattle has a chance to lock down its fourth Super Bowl appearance since the 2005 season.
The Chicago Bears won their lone Lombardi Trophy back in the 1985 season, led by the greatest defense ever. As for the Dallas Cowboys, they last won it all in the 1995 season to cement a '90s dynasty. Both the Bears and Cowboys have endured constant misery every since their last championships. This is the chance for redemption.
What This Means
Though the Saints, Eagles and Seahawks have all won the Super Bowl over the nine years, decade, all three are looking to build up a potential dynasty. The Bears, Cowboys and Rams, meanwhile, are looking to end droughts that have spanned over two to three decades now.
It should be an exciting playoff race on the NFC bracket, with all six teams having championship caliber rosters.
