The Las Vegas Raiders removed the interim coach tag from Antonio Pierce and they are at +8000 in the NFL championship odds.
Home, Sweet Home

In Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay upset defending champion Kansas City while playing in its home stadium.
Super Bowl LIX will be held at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans. The Saints failed to reach the NFL title game the first 10 times that the Super Bowl was played in their home stadium.
