The road to the Super Bowl can't be found yet on any map but after this weekend, the official cartographers of the realm can probably get busy laying out the route.

For only the second time this late in the season since 1970, the two top teams in each conference will square off this weekend, with some serious playoff implications on the line. In Kansas City, the 9-2 Chiefs will host the 9-2 Denver Broncos and the winner will get a leg up on home-field advantage throughout the AFC playdowns. In Seattle, the 9-2 New Orleans Saints will try to knock off the 10-1 Seahawks in a game that will probably decide home-field advantage through the NFC post-season.
