After a championship Sunday that saw both winners pushed until the end by late-game comeback attempts, we have our Super Bowl matchup.
The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers will face off on February 6th in Dallas to compete for football's ultimate prize.
On paper, there isn't much that separates the two teams. Green Bay has proven to be one of the most prolific scoring offenses this year, while Pittsburgh has looked like the Steel Curtain of old on defense.
Early predictions have Green Bay as a three-point favorite, further supporting the notion that this will be one of the most closely contended Super Bowls in recent years.
While it will be nearly impossible to accurately predict the winner, here are some key matchups that will play a big part in determining the outcome of Super Bowl XLV.
