(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer They are 16-point favorites against a team tied for the worst record in the league. With each and every victory over the span of a 10-game winning streak, their once-narrow path to the Super Bowl has grown as wide as an eight-lane highway.
