Has an NFL team ever appeared in the Super Bowl on their home field and if not what would the NFL do?

There has never been a team to play a Super Bowl on their home field. The closest was Super Bowl XIV when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Los Angeles Rams at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. and Super Bowl XIX when the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins at Stanford Stadium. The NFL awards the Super Bowl to a city four years in advance. If a team won their conference championship and the Super Bowl was scheduled on their home field, the game would go on as planned.

Can a NFL team get home field advantage in the super bowl?

Yes, but not by how well they play but by the luck of the draw. Stadiums that are chosen to host a Super Bowl are selected four years in advance of the game they will host. Therefore, it is possible that a team could play a Super Bowl in it's home stadium. Super Bowl XLV will be held in the Cowboys Stadium, Super Bowl XLVI in the Colts stadium, Super Bowl XLVII in the Saints stadium, and Super Bowl XLVIII in the Giants/Jets stadium. If the Cowboys make the Super Bowl this year (2010), the Colts next year, the Saints two years from now, or the Giants/Jets three years from now they will, in essence, being playing a home game.

Is it possible for the Cowboy's to play at home in the Super Bowl next year?

Yes. Super Bowls are awarded four years in advance, therefore, it is impossible to know who will be playing in the game. Should the Cowboys make it to Super Bowl XLV, they will play the game at their home stadium. In a similar vein, Super Bowl XLVI will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts, and Super Bowl XLVII will be played at the Superdome, home of the New Orleans Saints. Should the Colts make it to Super Bowl XLVI or the Saints make it to Super Bowl XLVII, they will play the game at their home stadium. Through Super Bowl XLIV, no team has played the Super Bowl game at their home stadium. The closest to that ever happening was the 1984 San Francisco 49ers playing in Superbowl XIX. The game was held in Stanford Stadium, Palo Alto, California, which is only about 20 miles from San Francisco.
