The road to Super Bowl XLVII goes through Washington

We've reached the dull part of the NFL offseason.  Free agency and the draft are in the past, training camp is still more than two months away and there's only so much "news" that will come out of rookie mini camps and OTAs.


So it's the perfect time to begin formulating who will make a run to Super Bowl XLVII.  While looking back over the last few seasons I came across an interesting phenomenon and it could hold the key to who will win the Super Bowl this season.


The phenomenon: the last six Super Bowl champions played the Washington Redskins during the regular season.


If this trend continues then it's bad news for the Packers who don't play the Redskins this year.  It is, however, good news for the NFC East, NFC South, AFC North and two most unlikely candidates: Minnesota and St. Louis.  So the first name to pop out is Pittsburgh but as we learned last year, you'd better be healthy come January.


When you're relying on a trend that might be more coincidence than anything else you know you've reached the dull part of the NFL year.  But if any of Washington's 13 opponents win it all this year just remember where you read it first.
