The Super Bowl is the ultimate goal, every year.
But when it's to be played in your home stadium, the stakes are a little higher.
"You don't want anyone else playing in it," Brian Cushing said. "You consider it your home and your stadium. It's something we obviously want to partake in."
Super Bowl LI is set for next February at NRG Stadium in Houston, and the inside linebacker talked
football recently after a community event. He said the typical raucous NRG Stadium environment would only be amplified for the biggest game of all.
"It would be an incredible experience and no one's ever really done it before," Cushing said. "Just the opportunity to play there you can only imagine the environment and the energy in the stadium. Playoff games alone are insane. I can only imagine the Super Bowl being played here in our place. The possibility of that is amazing."
Cushing picked off a pass and finished with a game-high 13 tackles in the Wild Card Playoff in January against the Chiefs.
