It has been rare indeed that there has been a Super Bowl rematch. There have only been five of them thus far and only once did the rematch occur the year after the original game. However, the Steelers and Packers will give viewers another rematch less than a year after the Packers 31-25 Super Bowl victory.
This game will be a very similar one to last year's. The Steelers will have to make adjustments as Aaron Rodgers badly burned their secondary last year. A major difference this year will be heathy players Jermichael Finley and Ryan Grant, who at the very least give Rodgers more weapons to give the ball to.
For once the Steelers will get rest thanks to the two weeks between the conference championships and the Super Bowl. As lopsided as last year's Super Bowl was early, the Steelers came back and made a game of it. If they can pressure Rodgers and keep this game closer, the Steelers will have a viable chance of winning.
Like last year, viewers will get another shootout. And the result will be very much the same. The Packers will win their second consecutive Super Bowl, starting the talk of a new dynasty in Titletown USA.
The Packers have finished their regular season at 15-1. Surprisingly not as many experts are predicting them to win the Super Bowl, instead making the Saints and the Patriots popular picks. It's true that the Packers' defense is awful, to the extent that they would be the worst defensive unit to win a Super Bowl. But the fact remains that Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL today, and the Packers have been the NFL's best team the entire season.
They have found ways to win the whole season and I expect that to carry into the postseason.
