Super Bowl: Predictions (I think the Steelers Win...)

On the first Sunday in February, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers play for it all in Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Millions of sports fans, young and old, will watch a contest that is now undoubtedly the most prominent sporting event in the United States of America.

The big game features two of most storied franchises in football – if not, all of sports – and fervent fan bases in the nation.

Pittsburgh will be playing in their second Super Bowl win in three years (and their seventh overall), while Green Bay (winners of three) will be looking for their first victory in the game since 1997.

The Steelers (12-4) emerged from the trials and tribulations with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, rallied as team led by head coach Mike Tomlin and overcame it all to find themselves in this situation.

Meanwhile, the Packers (10-6) led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike MCarthy, have been tested throughout the playoffs as they have had to win three straight road games to make to the Super Bowl. Furthermore, to just make the playoffs, they had to win their final two games of the regular season, defeating the New York Giants and Chicago Bears in succession.

As we look at both teams, each one has their issues going into the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh is known for their tough defense and gritty style of play on the turf; however, the offensive line has had a lot of work piled on them and the injury to Maurkice Pouncey – their center – may be a big story line.

these are two all-around beastly teams. neither team has a weakness. both deserve to be in this game. but if I had to bet on one, I'd say that Packers will win.I respect the Steelers,they beat every team fairly and did a great job, but due to the past games, I think the Packers are just unstoppable right now.

As someone who hasn’t watched a football game in years, Green Bay looks pretty dominate so far this game. Seems like they aren’t letting the Steelers play their own game.
