HOME SWEET HOME…MAYBE: For the first time since the NFL adopted the 12-team playoff format in 1990, the No. 1 seed from both the AFC and NFC have advanced to the Super Bowl in three consecutive seasons. However, only 27 of the 52 (52 percent) No. 1 seeds have advanced to the Super Bowl, with 12 No. 1 seeds being crowned champions (23 percent).
Dallas is the No. 1 seed in the NFC for the fourth time since 1990 and the first since 2007, while the Patriots are the top seed in the AFC for the fourth time since 2010.

EXTRA TIME IN THE POSTSEASON: The playoffs have featured at least one overtime game in 13 of the past 16 postseasons.  
In 2010, the NFL adopted a modified sudden-death system for the playoffs, which was expanded to cover all NFL games in 2012. The system guarantees each team a possession or the opportunity to possess, unless the team that receives the opening kickoff scores a touchdown on its initial possession. Play continues in sudden death until a winner is determined, and the game automatically ends upon any score.

Ten kickoffs have been returned for touchdowns in Super Bowl history, with the last coming on PERCY HARVIN’s 87-yard kickoff-return touchdown to open the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII. RON DIXON of the New York Giants (2000-02) is the only player with two career kickoff-return touchdowns in the playoffs.  
Chiefs rookie TYREEK HILL and Miami rookie KENYAN DRAKE are the only players in the 2016 postseason who returned a kickoff for a touchdown this season.
There have been only 21 punt-return touchdowns in playoff history. The last player with a punt-return touchdown in the postseason was Denver’s TRINDON HOLLIDAY in the 2012 Divisional round (90 yards, the longest in NFL playoff history). No player has ever recorded more than one in a career.  
Among the players in the 2016 postseason who returned a punt for a touchdown this season are Hill (two), Detroit’s ANDRE ROBERTS (two), Houston’s WILL FULLER (one) and Miami’s JAKEEM GRANT (one). 
Hill, who was selected to the Pro Bowl as a return specialist, is the only player in the NFL this season to return both a kickoff and punt for a touchdown.
