Super Bowl XLV: The Top 10 Personnel Matchups To Watch for in Dallas

The Green Bay Packers are used to stiff competition this season, with the past three weeks being no picnic for Mike McCarthy's team with tough wins at Lincoln Financial Field, the Georgia Dome and Soldier Field.

Pinching victories seems to be the Packers forte this year, even if this has been a trait of Green Bay since the Vince Lombardi era.

Things may be about to change, though.


Because the Pittsburgh Steelers are now up to bat.  And Mike Tomlin isn't stepping onto the dance floor for the first time.

As far as experience goes for the Packers, Green Bay has limited knowledge when it comes to facing the six-time Super Bowl champs.  The Packers last meeting with the Steelers came in 2009, which saw Ben Roethlisberger utilize some gasping heroics to post a 37-36 victory. 

Therefore, some soul-searching must be done in the next fortnight.

Then there is of course the other worry.  Pittsburgh's many threats.  Some of which are both experienced and skillful enough to annihilate a team at the twirl of a Terrible Towel. 

Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, and now Mr. Speed himself, Rashard Mendenhall, equip the Steelers roster, posing a problem or two for Green Bay's coaching staff.

Here are the Top 10 Personnel Matchups for Super Bowl XLV.
