Super Bowl 2011: Why Underdog Pittsburgh Steelers Will Top Green Bay Packers

The 2011 Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas promises to be a classic clash between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers finished the season with a 12-4 record and were the number two seed in the AFC. Meanwhile the Packers were in a win or go home situation for the past five weeks and managed to slip in to the number six seed in the NFC.

Going into the game the Packers are favored by 2.5 points despite sneaking into the playoffs. This is in large part because the Packers have arguably the best player on each side of the ball.

Aaron Rodgers is the hottest quarterback in the league and Clay Matthews has a good chance to win Defensive Player of the Year after recording 14.0 sacks.

There is definitely a lot to like about the Packers heading into Super Bowl XLV.

But here is why the Steelers will rise to the occasion and pull off the upset on the biggest Sunday in the NFL season.
