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.
